“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9
If you’re struggling to create a vision, don’t sweat it. I worry culture has led us to believe that if we’re not hustling around the clock with Elon Musk sized dreams, then we’re a failure.
We’ve even turned motherhood into some kind of Olympic Sport. I’m tired of feeling guilty for loathing slime crafts with my babies, America!
God’s grace is more than enough for us. In fact, the less “strong” and perfect we are, the more opportunity for God to move in our life and stun us with his unconditional love and delightful little miracles.
Don’t overcomplicate it. When creating a vision for your life, simply follow the breadcrumbs towards what feels peaceful, good and right. If your vision feels forced and draining, then you may be trying to push someone else’s vision on your life. If it feels peaceful, or exciting, or natural – if it lights you up, well then, we might be on to something.
I often remind myself that God doesn’t want a performance, he wants a relationship. For us to long to be close to him each day. And as our intimacy grows, he will use our weaknesses to create something beautiful. We get more clarity, more definition. The vision begins to appear.
Are you in a season to pursue a vision God’s given you?
Or are you in a season to simply pursue God?
Something to ponder for today.
