It’s a good thing to have a life vision. It gives you a direction and a purpose for living. Recently, I did a little self-evaluation and landed on this principle: I exist to love, believe and discover eternity through love and writing. Honestly, that’s the closest thing to a life vision I’ve ever had. I read that little phrase, and my heart burns inside of me. This fact, this reality, that God exists and wants to get to know me, is what I live and breathe to experience.
This is my ministry of love: when I love my neighbor by feeding or clothing him or giving him a place to stay, I am actually loving my King. If I deny these things to anyone in need, I am denying the One who has blessed me with everything I could ever need. I will continue to stretch my heart bigger and grow in love. Love creates a bigger capacity not only for my relationships with people but ultimately for my relationship with my Father!
We are constantly moving forward in time, and there’s nothing we can do to stop it. Each step taken moves us somewhere else, to a different moment, one we’ve never lived before. The world has told us to worry about dwindling resources, but in reality, time is just a dimension, one that can mean a whole lot less when seen from a transcendent perspective. So we go higher and deeper into the Love of God, and we find stillness, peace and rest there. In that place, fear melts away, confidence reigns and joy is unlimited.
We have all the time in the world. We have eternity. So then, let’s not waste a moment.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”–Matthew 6:33
