After a conversation with a friend about dreams, visions and having clear direction for your life, your marriage, your children - your family as a whole. I began to think on a #FundamentalLesson I have learned in my marriage, watching my parents as well as those around me, is that you must have a clear vision(s) for you and your family. Not the vision that the world has said that you should have, but the one that is divine because you have prayed about, meditated on it, and received clarity as to how it should be accomplished.
I have refused to live a life that is mundane and ordinary. I will not say at the end of this life, "I coulda" "woulda" and "shoulda". I have witnessed so much greatness go six feet under prematurely, not accomplishing that which they were ordained to achieve because they were not aligned with the will for their lives or they were afraid to take a risk. Therefore, I have committed and believe in getting aligned with the will of God that He has for me, individually as well as in my marriage and for my extended family.
His Will are the vision(s) He has for your life. God is so multifaceted and multi dimensional. He has so many sources and streams for us, but we never see the manifestation because our mindsets are that of this world. To understand and live in your dreams you must become kingdom minded and operate in obedient faith. Another key you must surround yourself with those who are driven to live out the superlative life ordained for them. I have a group of people around me who are kingdom minded and are committed to being that which they are called to be and we are taking this life fearlessly and by storm. Also, I believe in "writing the vision" and not just writing it but actually being a doer of it. Once you get a clear understanding in these areas, it doesn't matter what anyone says about you, what they do to you or how they try to sabotage you, you're pressing forward focused in your higher calling. These are fundamental teaching for those who enter into one of the visions that God has placed in me, "The Sanctuary".
He has so much destiny and purpose in each of us, but it is up to us to transform our thinking and our surroundings so that we can believe and began to live out that which has been foreordained for us at the foundation of the earth. Yes, in the beginning He was thinking about you and me!
I encourage those of you that are tired of being in the "rut" and on the "hamster wheel of life" to get with some folks who are tired of the ordinary and are ready to do the "extraordinary" and to begin to write your vision(s) and not only write but take action because "faith without you doing is dead". Then believe and expect that the greatness, visions and dreams that are in you will be accomplished and manifested through Christ Jesus.
"The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps." ~Proverbs 16:9
