This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Proverbs 16:9 (ESV)
Today, I am thinking about how we never know where God will take our vision.
Recently, I participated in Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday was born out of the idea that after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which are several days of shopping for yourself or others, the next logical day would be a day of giving, whether it is a financial gift or volunteering your time.
Today, Giving Tuesday is widely practiced around the world. What started as a simple giving campaign has blossomed into many special projects around the world that engage all ages. I heard one story in particular where a grade school in New York was making backpacks with little handwritten notes that were given to students in Puerto Rico recently impacted by the hurricane.
Through this we see that we never know the ripple effect that God can have on our vision once we put it out there. So, what vision do you have but are holding onto because not all the details are figured out yet? Maybe 2018 is the year you need to make your vision a reality.
As you think about that, cling to these words: “The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” Proverbs 16:9 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, don’t let that vision stay inside, release it to the world and watch God’s ripple effect.
