OUR LIFE'S VISION



When we were born into sin, we were faultless.  We were still too innocent to choose to sin but since sin is inherent in our DNA, God cannot fault us for that.  

Our fault begins when we begin to be aware of God, His desires for that which He created us to be, and our blatant refusal to become obedient and follow His will.  Sin was not caused to us by Adam and Eve.  Sin was caused to Adam and Eve by satan in the Garden of Eden.  There was a point in my life when I declared that what happened in the beginning was merely a myth.  You know just like those greek gods and goddesses.

My world of awareness began later in life.  Almost  40, when I realized that I was totally wrong about the whole bible.  How silly of my to have wasted all that time refusing the light which increased my darkness.

When our vision declines at around age 40, we go to the eye doctor for an assessment so that we could restore our clear vision.  It is a healthy practice to make sure our eyes are healthy.  But there is another set of eyes that we need to keep healthy and that is our spiritual eyes.  The perfect visual vision for this is up.  Looking to God to see whether our vision is in line with His.

To do that, we must do the following: First, our vision cannot go against what God has already revealed in His Word.  God will never steer us where His Word and His character is contradicted. There are no exceptions to this.  Second, we must use our common sense.  When we use the brain that God has given us, then our vision will stay on track as we move closer to fulfilling them.  Third, and this is big!  We must be faithful and our faith must not go against our common sense.  Faith means that you have visions or goals that is big enough that you cannot do it alone, rather you need to consult God on it every step of the way.  He wants us to dream big but not crazy.  Lastly, if your vision and dream is in line with God, He will back it up.  You will be required to do leaps of faith which can be scary but you do them anyway because you believe that God's got your back.

So keep your vision clear.  Until my next rant...  LOVE ONE ANOTHER!

I struggle with trying to stay in God's will as my youngest daughter's mother. She has special needs, and I know that God has a plan for her. Sometimes I need to step back and remember that.

Lovely post!

I don't know exactly how it feels to have a child with special needs but I empathize with you. God does have a plan for her, but He has a plan for you as well with regards to her. I believe that if you consult God He will give you the strength you need, the words to say, the assistance you require to see the special favor He has given you. God doesn't give us struggles we can't handle. He knows that you are stronger than most and your testimony will inspire others. I happen to be one of those people because I feel that kind of struggle is something I may not be cut out to handle. So bravo to you! Just make sure that you set aside time for yourself to recharge. Don't be afraid to seek the assistance of others. I'm sure you have good people around you who are able to help. Take care and God bless you and your child.
