GUEST POST: Regaining Focus

So you got more than a little side tracked and with each day that goes by, your vision that you once had, slowly fades away. It’s true that if you don’t feed a vision, it fades. But that doesn’t mean it has to vanish. So to get that vision back, what do you think you’ve got to do?

You’ve got to feed it! No matter how you feel. Make a specific plan with steps on how you will get the momentum going. Then put one foot in front of the other, working toward your vision. You will continue to produce NOTHING until you do SOMETHING.

You’ve got to find someone who will hold you accountable. Your accountability partner should be someone who supports your vision. Accountability partners are great for bouncing ideas off of, holding you accountable (of course), sparking a fire in you for your vision, and keeping you on track. If you do not already have an accountability partner, I highly recommend one, as they are invaluable to your vision.

Then you’ve got to get with God, the maker of all visions and ask Him for a restored vision, renewed energy and focus. He will listen. He cares more about this vision than you ever could. After all, it is His vision that He placed within you. He will respond with patience, love and grace as He walks alongside you as you gain back focus and carry out His vision for your life.

Before you know it, the vision within you will be restored completely and you will be right where God has called you to be, continuing to rise up because that’s what He calls us to do is rise. SCRIPTURE God doesn’t put a limit on the vision, we put limits on the vision. Where He calls us, there are limitless opportunities and possibilities for the vision He places within us. So, you more than a little sidetracked? Get back up and let’s go! God’s still right there, waiting on you!!
