What Is Your Vision?

“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.” - Woodrow Wilson
Are you missing the vision of your life? Are you so busy making a living, watching TV, or playing around that you are not seeking the grander vision God has for you?

Think about what you would like to experience in your life - the goals, the aspirations, and your heart's desire. Isn't it time in your life to make that vision a reality?

You can you know? You can stop dreaming. You can stop mindlessly walking through life working and waking and working again.

What are you waiting for?
Vision encompasses vast vistas outside the realm of the predictable, the safe, the expected.” - Charles Swindoll
It’s not easy to take the creative thing God has given you and attempt to move it to the next level, but anyone who has realized their dreams in music, art, acting, dancing, or anything has done so by taking the first step. They auditioned, they went out for the team, they made that phone call or sent that email. They got started.

Then and only then can the vision that God has given you, or perhaps a prophecy or vision someone else has had for you, come to fruition. That recording will never get made, that performance will never happen, that life out there that could be changed by you, that peace your creativity may bring someone...none of that will matter if you don’t step out in faith and take action.
“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.” - Joel A. Barker
I’ve seen artists change actual lives, both theirs, their families, and the people they touch with their art. They come with a vision, they find a way to put that vision into a step by step plan, then they find help to make it happen.

Maybe this week, instead of just more TV watching, more Instagram or Facebook scrolling, more mindless work days, you take real action toward the vision for your creative talents. What could your artistic talent be if you put a grand plan in action? 

You are unique and God only made one of you with your specific talents, ideas, drives, and focus. Isn’t it time to fully realize everything you could do if you put all your energies toward that?
“The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.” - Neil Gaiman
Have a great week!

I took that step by going into the studio and had instrumentals put to a song that I wrote abd it was awesome. I truly believe in putting action to my faith . Thank you for great insight and encouraging words ,God bless!!
