“Alexander Graham Bell believed that sound could be converted into electrical impulses and transmitted by wire. No one remembers those who thought he was crazy. We only remember the man who had the vision and created the telephone. If you do things in a halfway manner, you can always find a job somewhere. Yet if you do just enough to get by, you are going to remain simply an employee. However, if you decide that you’re going to find something that is truly yours, then you will fulfill your vision, and you will be remembered by others.”~ Dr. Miles Munroe
When a vision is from God, sometimes you might have a hard time sleeping. I discovered this reality recently. God placed an awesome dream in my heart that I could not shake, or stop thinking about. Oh my goodness! I tossed and turned in the midnight hour, anxious only to awake and get more of the vision down on paper before it escaped my memory.
Nevertheless, I got up that morning feeling super charged and excited to start my day and make a difference in the world. As I started to write down the plans that God placed in my heart, I was overwhelmed with joy as I got more and more excited! This my friend, is what I call “falling in love with your divine purpose”.. Although I have full knowledge that the vision from God is for an appointed time, I have allowed myself to still dream and wonder about this treasure that He has placed on the inside of me. In due season, it will come to pass…And, so will yours..
God has something that He wants each and everyone of us to do. He has purpose on His mind for all of us. However, it is our failure to ask Him, and to be ready to execute that keeps us in the same place year after year. Today is March 28th 2014, what is your next purpose driven move? I encourage you to fall back in love with your divine purpose!
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen
