What is a vision? One of the definitions I've found says a vision is "the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be." I ask, because I hear so many "successful" professionals discuss the importance of having a vision for success. Well, I've been trying as long as I can remember to come up with a professional vision. I can't.
No matter how hard I focus. No matter how long I try. I can't "anticipate that which will or may come to be", professionaly. This, I think, contributes to my bouts with depression and anxiety. I desperately want to professionaly achieve all that God has made me to achieve, but I have no clue what it is. Sometimes I wait for the "right job" to present itself. Other times I try to make the most of the job that I have. Neither satisfies me.
Am I the slothful servant? I hope not! Because, personaly I have a vision. I dream of the day that I stand face to face with Jesus Christ. I desperately want to hear "well done, thou good and faithful servant." I pray that I am doing Gods will. I hope that His vision for me is to love my wife and kids and to teach them His Gospel. When I do these things, I feel joy. I feel love. I am able "to anticipate that which will or may come to be."
I will continue to press forward in my career, praying for His will to be revealed. Maybe He doesn't care where I work; just that I work. So long as I pursue my personal vision.
