ARE YOU EYES ON YOUR VISION?

EYE ON VISION WHAT DO YOU SEE?  Have you been given a vision? I am not talking about your actual sense of sight. I hope you are healthy. I am talking about your vision for your future.

A vision is vision.jpg an imagined idea or goal towards which one (you) aspires.

If you have a vision or idea about your life today that is amazing. That is HOPE.

Some people may call it HYPE. What is hype?  Hype is inflated expectations, disillusionment, grandeur, hype defined.jpgor enlightenment.

The CLOSEST well meaning’ people may call your vision HYPE. Why? A lot of reasons.

Fear, feeling that they will be left behind, (fear) jealousy, perceived failures or just their own B.S. (belief systems 😉

Don’t allow ANYONE to cloud your vision. You were given that vision that HOPE, for a specific reason.  God gave it to you.

Warning: your vision may take you to some pretty unusual and unconventional places. Places that others may not understand or appreciate.

I am on such a journey. I supplement each step with a prayer. It goes something like this:

“Lord Jesus, please guide me today. I know this vision is from you. It beats inside me like my own heart, driving me toward a goal. Give me your wisdom so each step will point back to you.” Amen.

When my mother was alive she had a vision; a hope. She was troubled because not everyone understood or appreciated the vision for her life. My wife Cindy said something to her that I will never forget. “Jean, not everyone appreciates your vision because it was given to YOU, not them.” My mother replied with great fervor..”Yes! that’s right!” Thank you!

My wife was right. Your vision is uniquely YOURS. It belongs to YOU.

Don’t expect everyone to cheer you on or understand why you must do what you must do.

Some will support you and some won’t.  But everyone needs someone in their corner. 

**How do you keep a cheering section in your life?

Seek out these types of people:

1. Those who support you because they love you.  {This type of person doesn’t care about understanding you..they just love you.}love

2. Those who have a similar vision.  { This type of person can add to your vision with their own ideas} light bulb

3. Those who have the same vision. { This type of person will run beside you, sharpen your vision, and pick you up when you fall.}

P.S?  If there is someone who discourages you in your vision question why you have them in your life. If someone truly loves and supports you they will endeavor to understand you.

1st Corinthians 13 says it best: 🙂

The Way of Love

13 If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate.

If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.

3-7 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.

Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
