“Write this. Write what you see.
Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run.”
Habakkuk 2:2 MSG
Have you written out your vision for the year ahead?
You can write a new chapter for your life beginning today! A written vision is a powerful tool you can use to create the life of your dreams.
If you didn’t see last Thursday’s 4 Points Broadcast where I walked you through the process of writing a powerful vision for your life, you can listen to it now by clicking here.
“This vision-message is a witness pointing to what’s coming.
It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait!”
Habakkuk 2:2 MSG
I have found that the biggest challenge people face when writing a clear and compelling vision is that they don’t really know what they want.
This is not new to those of us living in the modern age of infinite possibilities. Jesus found those He ministered to suffering from the same lack of clarity:
“What do you want me to do for you?”
In the 19th century, Mark Twain observed: “I can help anyone get anything they want out of life. The only problem is that I can’t find anyone who knows what they want.”
I challenge you at the start of this New Year to get clear on what you truly want. Not what others want or expect from you; not what your employer or spouse or parent or church or circle of friends want or expect from you—but what you authentically want for yourself.
What is the deeply personal vision you have for your uniquely authentic life?
Every day the world tries to tell you who you should become. If you aren’t careful, the world’s opinions can keep you from making your life your own.
As you begin 2017, remember:
No one can live your life for you—you must take ownership of your own life, future, and destiny.
Your vision and goals should be the most authentic, empowered expression of the aspirations that make you distinctly you.
Adopting someone else’s vision for your life or attempting to squeeze yourself into someone else’s mold only diminishes your potential and distorts your unique gift to the world.
Research shows that individuals who are surrounded by people with personalities more dominant than their own tend to suppress their authentic self.
“What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you?”
—Mark 8:37 MSG
Because you know yourself better than anyone else, only you can determine the dreams, choices, and lifestyle that are right for you.
Therefore, as the Apostle Paul exhorts:
“Live creatively…Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life” (Gal. 6:1,4-5 MSG).
As you start the year fresh, ask yourself two things:
- How am I allowing others to mold my life to their vision rather than my own?
- How will I make the most of the precious gift God has given me—the power to choose blessing and life? (See Deut. 30:19.)
