Never Forget Your Vision

By Kuanita E. Murphy

If you don’t know where you’re going any road will do. Vision is fundamental to life’s path, for it establishes a goal or objective to pursue. During difficult times, vision can also keep one motivated. The naysayers, critics, cumbersome winds and adversities of life can challenge not only one’s vision but faith. The challenge is to continue to pursue the vision despite the odds.

Do you know why a car’s windshield is so large and the rear view mirror is so small? The reason is because the past is not as important as the future. Poor decisions made in the past have can only prohibit one’s future with permission. Life is too short to wake up with regrets. Move forward regardless of what the present circumstances may look like; and remember every saint has a past and every sinner as a future.

When things are not going as planned, relax and believe that everything happens for a reason. Worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles; it merely takes away today’s peace. Trust the G.P.S. (God’s Plan and Specific Life Purpose). Like a satellite, God knows your present location, future destination, and how to get you there.

As you pursue the vision, remember to treat people right, for life has a way of bringing all things full circle. The same people you see on the way up are the same people you see on your way down. Love the people who treat you right. Love the ones who don’t just because you can. In the end, you’ll be glad that you did. Sow good seeds to reap a bountiful harvest.

An adventurous precious gift is life. Pursue your vision with purpose, power, and passion. If you fail once, and get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. God never said life would be easy. He just promised that it would be worth it!
