How many of you have a joyful life vision in front of you today? I believe with your vision in place, you can live a joyful life, regardless of your circumstances. Is that the life you are currently living? If not, what changes do you want to make? You have choices in front of you. You can write it down, visualize it and see it happen.
Do you believe that your life can be joyful? Or purposeful? You are created to make a difference in this world. Living with expectancy moves you to action, which can produce joy and purpose. Expectancy and belief are motivators to move you forward.
How do you get in touch with your beliefs and vision? Take time to dream, pray, make a vision board with me and a few friends, think about your goals. Lou Holtz, the famous football coach, wrote down 107 goals he hoped to achieve. He did this as an out of work 28-year-old, no money in the bank, with his wife pregnant with their third child. The goals were both personal and professional. If you go to his website today, you’ll see pictures – like visiting the White House, and hitting 2 hole- in ones. He’s achieved 81 of those 107 goals. Setting those goals down and recognizing his passions, moved him into action.
I believe that getting in touch with vision, passion and purpose, is the spiritual journey.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.Jeremiah 29:11.
By being aware of all the connections that God makes for me on a daily basis, I am open to His direction. What some people call the “coincidences”, I call “God-incidences,” and love seeing His fingerprints all over my life.
So, today, check your focus. What are your intentions for the day? Awareness of God, time with family, eating healthy, creating an inviting environment for women….? Whatever those intentions are, how will you be open to receiving what you need today to carry them out? What are you thinking about, moment to moment? How is it contributing to your vision and well-being?
Remember, too, you don’t have to go on this journey alone for a joyful life vision. Find a friend, contact me, talk to God. The journey to your vision is worth the work.
Enjoy your day, relish your your joyful life vision and know that you can have a hope and future. It’s a promise!
