Everyone should have a vision because without a vision our preferable future is bleak at best and our direction in life is foggy. So, what is your vision? Think about it for a moment. If you don’t have a vision for your life, then ask God for one that fits your desires. It is said that vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others and that vision without action is merely a dream.

Author Roy T. Bennett said, “Live the life of your dreams. Be brave enough to live the life of your dreams according to your vision and purpose instead of the expectations and opinions of others.” Remember that obstacles will not destroy your vision, but your attitude can. Have faith in your vision and remember that circumstances and people don’t have the last word; God does!

Don’t let others tell you what you cannot do and don’t let the limitations of others limit your vision. If you can remove your self-doubt and believe in yourself, you can achieve what you never thought possible. Nothing can defeat you without your permission and you don’t have to give it.

Fulfilling your life’s vision depends on having a vision which calls for waiting on God until he reveals his plan for you. Once you have a vision of where you want to be in life, you must be willing to dedicate time and energy to it which calls for patience and discipline.

Your vision will give you direction, creativity and resilience. Without one you become passive, aimless and vulnerable to quitting. God can give you a vision instantly, but its fulfillment will require learning, patience, and managing life’s daily challenges. Remember that visions come with opportunities as well as obstacles so you must have faith and practice good management to overcome hurdles along the way.

If you have no vision, ask God to give you one. If you have already accomplished your vision, then ask God to give you another before you lose the joy and motivation of life. If you have a vision that’s so small it doesn’t stretch you, then ask God for a bigger one and watch your faith grow. And Never Give Up! Never Give Up! Never Give Up!
