Dream Big, Write it Down, and Watch God Make it Happen!......

Habakkuk 2:2-3 And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

In early 2010, I decided to create a vision book (some individuals use a vision board) that would visualize the goals and aspirations I would like to accomplish in the near future.  What is a vision book or board you ask? It is a visual collage using pictures and phrases from magazines or other references, that represent things you would like to accomplish or attract in your life.  A vision book/board is a visual way to get all desires on paper and allow you to put your focus on accomplishing those things.

Today's Food for the Soul: God wants us to dream big! We often limit our dreams to what we think we can accomplish, but God has the power and He gives us the ability. It is important to write down your dreams and aspirations.  The more we see and meditate on them, the closer we become to our goal. Perhaps you would like to travel more, own a business, become a millionaire or a great philanthropist--all of these things should be written down with an action plan.  As long as your plan aligns with God's master plan, they will succeed.  Think for a minute.  What is one thing that you would like to do or a place you would like to visit, if money was not an option? Sure you may not have the finances to accomplish the goal right this minute, but put faith behind it and watch God make it happen. He wants us to walk by faith and not by sight! We must put our faith in Him and not our own power or ability. To get your creative juices flowing, consider the following questions listed below:
  • What is your true passion?
  • If money was not an option, what would you do, go, be, etc?
  • What occupation would you choose if compensation were not an issue?
  • In 3 words or less, describe your future?
  • What would bring you the greatest joy and fulfillment in life?

Get busy working on your vision board/book! Dream big and watch God open up many opportunities for you!

  1. i don't do vision boards - i find them cheesy.
    however i believe in writing things down.

    i will attempt to answer your questions:
    What is your true passion? encouraging others.

    If money was not an option, what would you do, go, be, etc? i would do exactly what i'm doing but probably on a larger scale.

    What occupation would you choose if there were no compensation? do you mean if compensation was not an issue - writer, editor, trainer, techsupport manager.

    How do you see your future? it's bright!

    What would bring you the greatest joy and fulfillment in life? knowing that whatever i'm doing i'm honoring God first and foremost.

    BTW - I love the new colorscheme.

  2. Thank You Nylse! I felt the need to tone it down a bit! Also thank you for answering the questions--great answers! :)
