Take it Easy, Mentoring Moments, the 1-min blog
Because my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:30 (GW)
As we prepare to bring INSPIRE to Indiana, I’ve been meditating a lot on vision. My favorite definition of vision comes from Pastor Bill Hybels “vision is a picture that produces passion.”
That picture can be something good that you want to make happen, like getting fit and healthy. It could also be a picture of something bad that you want to avoid or bring to an end like child hunger. Regardless of what your picture is, it will produce excitement, enthusiasm and a desire for action.
When a leader decides to take action on a vision, two things inevitably appear, grace and fear. Grace is available to make things light and easy. We obtain grace when we partner with God. With it we can do the supernatural. On the other hand, fear is heavy. So heavy, that it doesn’t allow you to carry much else. Eventually you will have to drop your fear or drop your vision.
Do you have vision, a picture that produces passion? Partner with God and take it light and easy.
Success and Progress!
