As you prayerfully connect with your Visioning Statement each day, you’ll find your vision becoming increasingly clear, solid and powerful. You’ll begin to really inhabit it with everything you have.


Once that happens, add this question to your morning meditation: What will I do today to move my life closer to this vision? In the examples above, the answer might be to join a running group, or to ask out that person you’ve been too scared to approach. It might be to create a master plan for the next year, or to take it a day at a time. Your heart will know the right choice for you.


Visioning isn’t about wish craft; in fact, it’s just the opposite. Visioning takes your wish and transforms it into a clearly defined future reality—one that you and God design together.


When you live from a place of vision, you'll find the choices you make in moving toward your dream will be significantly different from what you might have done before. And more importantly, you'll approach your goal with an attitude of inspiration and faith, rather than one of struggle and doubt.
