“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Prov. 29:18
Today’s Christian Daily Devotional
The next time you are in a public place with a lot of people, I challenge you to really pay attention to the faces around you. Take a good hard look at the facial expressions and body language of each individual.
It will not take you long to pick out the ones who have hope. They will be the ones who walk taller, move faster, smile more and exhibit passion in even the most insignificant tasks that they set their minds to.
There is another kind of species that is quite the opposite. They may have the same hair color, order the same latte’ and breathe in the same air, but there is something missing. These individuals seem to walk as if they are trudging through invisible mud. If they smile, it seems forced and insincere. If they start a task, you can feel the painful effort they exude just to “get through it”.
Hope and vision are the very attributes that separate the living from the walking dead. How has your vision been lately? Are you moving toward the goals that continue to feed your hope and give you passion? Or, are you caught in the undertow of everyday living? Have you forgotten to adjust your motives and make your direction clearer? Today is a new day and that gives you a new chance. Don’t just live life like the walking dead…walk with vision and purpose instead!
“Dear Heavenly Father,
I need to readjust. I have lost my joy and passion. When I see the world go whisking by, I feel like the discarded newspaper that just floats across the street. I am just moving with the wind. It has been a while since I have walked with a purpose and a passion. Can you show me what I have to be excited about? Can you give me a new dream for the life that I am living today? Help me to see beyond my circumstance and see the potential for my future. In Jesus’ precious name, give me the passion to live a life that is full of vision and dreams. I am ready to shine for you, Amen!”
