The Peril Of Having Sight But No Vision

Jan 21, 2015

Move forward. Yes, keep moving forward.

That’s where the joy is. That’s where the adventure lies.

Keep moving forward.

But in order to do that

you must have a vision.

Without vision people perish. (Proverbs 29:8)

Without vision we stagnate

continuing to do what we are comfortable doing.

Staying in our nice safe box. Doing what we know best.

But life is about moving forward,

stretching and growing

seeking, reaching, sometimes leaping.

So how do you get a vision?

Ask yourself “If you could do anything what would you be doing?”

“If you could meet anyone

who would you want to meet?”

Or “If you could go anywhere, where you would go?”

Or “If you could write anything knowing it would sell, what would you write?”

Those questions and more will begin to give you an idea of your heart’s true purpose

and a vision.

Spend time in prayer seeking His Will for your life.

Work with a coach who is equipped to lead you in your discovery.

Read books of others who are doing what you’d like to be doing.

Keep moving forward

to the Light of His Purpose.

Life is lived forward

not backward.

Yesterday is gone. What we hold in our hands is the gift of today.

Think vision, dream big and listen to those gentle whispers.

“The most pathetic person in the world is some one who has sight but no vision.”
― Helen Keller

Now is the time to set your sails and let Him lead you.

You have no idea what you could possibly accomplish in your lifetime

but He does.

Keep moving forward today.
