Habakkuk's prophetic writings (Habakkuk 2:2) not only applied to the BC era but 2020! Gosh, a brand new year has emerged coupled with a whole new decade, one that sets an underlying theme of its own. There is a need to have vision, one that's clear and concise in order to tackle all the twists and turns life will throw along the journey to pursuing endeavors and purpose-driven pursuits. Don't ever mistake it! We all have a purpose and should discover it because time waits for none!
Many of us have set the ole New Year's resolves which most times is just a statement about what we will attempt to do to improve or change the dissatisfactions in our lives. However, I believe putting a tangible action plan in place is more effective than just talking about things.
So We Write the Vision?
Yes, we do this because writing clarifies, confirms, and contracts! Therefore, we must be clear on the desires and mission in our lives and proceed to write it! I'm a strong believer in the Power of the Pen (I'll share some old writings from childhood in a future post so you can see what I mean)! But back to the first point, we need to be clear on what we need and what plan we have been inspired to bring forth in this purpose. Most times, clarity comes when I'm free of distracting behaviors (anxiety, stress, anger, etc). Negative emotions /behaviors may distort your clarity so when you sit to write make sure you have a sense of peace mentally.
Confirming your vision through imaging allows you to make it plain. As strong as our faith can be there's nothing like seeing what you envision. So this year, if you haven't constructed your vision board you better get started! Be very strategic with you the images to create. Vision work isn't a game it's a mission!
Once you've done all the work to this point your vision becomes a contract. One between yourself and that desired end or endeavor! The only one who can break it is you! Therefore, it's imperative that you go for the vision! Write it down! Every intricate detail no matter how elaborate it may seem! Be willing to put in the work and keep the faith and watch how things fall in line if you're really committed!
"And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it."
