“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Proverbs 28:19
I am constantly asking God to give me a vision. Sure – I want to do lots of things – like speak to teens – tell them my story. I want to sing. I want to play the piano. But I don’t have a vision. I don’t have this great idea that I’m making plans for.
I hear people talk about exactly what they plan to do. A halfway house for unwed mothers. A teen center. Prison ministry. All these plans and sometimes I wish I had a plan too.
But then I hear God chuckle and say “But I know the plans I have for you. You don’t have to know them.”
And then I remember the visions I have had here that have come to pass. I asked for more microphones to lead worship. We got them. And all along I had a vision of having my own mike at the piano so I could lead from there. And I could see this in my mind. And sometimes when we’re singing, the Spirit puts something on my heart to say, but I have to stop playing to pick up the mike. So I asked for a mike stand with an arm on it for my mike. But truthfully, I am scared to death to talk and play the piano at the same time and I didn’t expect to get this stand. But we got one. And now this vision I’ve seen in my head is coming to pass. And although I’m scared – I know God is slowly growing me and teaching me what it means to truly lead worship.
I was watching Jesse Duplantis this morning and he talked about having a vision. He said you have to have more vision, more influence and more commitment. I want to have all these things.
God will reveal His vision for my life as He is ready for me to receive it. Until then, I will put my all into all I can here! Cause my vision right now is for this prison!
