When Vision Comes Alive


Vision is the image of your future. Some have a vision to start a family, some have a vision to start a business or become a world class fisherman. Some desire a career to go into politics while others have a vision to change the world with their invention or great idea. How do I know this? I've met them all, more than once. Some of them made it, others are still trying - nevertheless, they had vision.

In the midst of hopelessness and depression vision can become one of the first causalities. Where there is no vision, the people perish, the Bible says. So what is your vision? I have spent A LOT of time over the years trying to answer that question. One thing I have concluded is that I'm not alone. Depending on ones definition of vision - what the purpose of that vision is, etc. etc. etc. Blah, Blah, Blah. Really, the rhetoric after a while is numbing.

So what can I tell you? Vision is more of a passion than it is action. In other words, it is what you are passionate about. What you are passionate about is what you are going to spend your time, money and energy on. So what are you passionate about? Wayne Cordeiro in his book Leading on Empty makes an excellent point. He says that 85% of what we can do, anyone can do. 10% of what we can do, we can train someone else to do. But 5% of what we do no one else can do. You cannot delegate it or hire it out. With that said, your vision is going to be about your 5%. If you don't know what it is, you will seek vision and never discover it.
