Vision is defined by the dictionary as ‘the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom’, and indeed, it is true. There are no two ways about it — without a vision, the people perish. I understand that coming from a young and naive girl like me, it certainly is nothing short of ironic. Here I am, still struggling to accept myself just as how God accepts and treasures me. Here I am, still coming to terms with my failure during my primary school national examinations. Here I am, still grasping the reality that I don’t come from a renown school. However, time and time again, as I awaken from my slumber and pull myself out of bed, I had to learn to welcome the new day with positivity and with the mindset that I can do what I had not done well yesterday. Sure, it is a difficult struggle and I find myself often in anguish due to the turn out of my circumstances. I felt hopeless, being cornered to the ends, hanging on to whatever thread of leftover hope from my innocent childhood days.
Day in and day out, I did a lot of growing up, I mean, I still am. It’s a process anyway, so of course, it’s going to be a long journey ahead, but I rest assured that I have with me a Friend and Guide who will bring me through this.
Just as I had learned recently, the power of confession is extraordinary. A famous king once said, “Life and death are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall eat of the fruit thereof.” Hence, I’ve implemented a practice in my home and in myself that what I envision will eventually be conceptualized.
I believe that He who had begun a good work in me will complete it until the day of Christ.
Hope this encouraged you! 😀
