I once read; “The greatest gift ever given to mankind is not the gift of sight but the gift of vision.” The ability to see and believe what others cannot.
The bible says; “now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1.
Have you ever seen an artist start to paint or draw? In the beginning you can’t tell where there going with their design. However, you are amazed at the end result once they have finished. It’s funny because you had no clue what they were drawing or how it was going to turn out until the middle or the finished product. The artist envisioned their end result and have already seen what they wanted you to see once they have finished.
The importance of asking yourself questions that invoke thought
That is the same with our life. Where are you going? Where do you see yourself in the next five, ten, or twenty years from now? What vision for your life do you have? Think about the questions presented here. It’s nothing new you haven’t heard before. However, I want you to think about it now to see if your vision aligns with your reality.
There are scores of individuals throughout the world who cannot answer these questions with conviction or any certainty. However, on the other hand, you have thousands of people who dare to answer these questions with empty hope. Their answers are not predicated on the foundation filled with true vision, belief, dedication, backed by persistent action to achieve the very goal they set out to accomplish. Then you have a small percentage of individuals who defy all odds and what they say comes to pass and more.
Ancient writings say; “where there is no vision the people perish.” That is a powerful statement that shares relevance in everyone lives. We all should ponder, to think, even meditate daily about what we want out of life. Revisit our goals and aspirations weekly to make sure our actions align with our vision.
How far can vision take you?
Vision allows you to see with your heart and mind what you cannot see with your eyes. True vision enables you to step through the doorway of time into the future and view what your belief, dedication, persistence, hard work, conviction will produce if you do not falter.
I will leave you with this question; What is your full potential? Let me answer it for you; UNLIMITED!!!
I am inspired to bring content that will impact one’s life in a way to make a quality change in their life, or improve it in some fashion or way. If I have helped one person I know we both have been blessed.
Jesus once said; “feed my sheep.”
I hope I have done that here today. By inspiring someone to take a look at their own life with a new vision that will effect a positive change that will not only benefit themselves, but all that come in contact with them.
