The Word for You Today

1.  “Questions about Your Vision”
  • The word of the Lord came…in a vision.  Gen 15:1
  • 90% of all disappointments come from unrealistic expectations
  • Dream a little every day – explore possibilities and embrace options
  • Celebrate each small step of success
  • Keep growing as you pursue your vision – who you become is your biggest reward
  • Peace comes from knowing you are where God wants you to be

2.  “Say ‘No!’”
  • Think before you respond
  • When your plate is full, say so
  • Go with your gifts

3.  “Have You Lost Your Focus?”
  • When your focus changes from God to the enemy, you can easily become overwhelmed
  • Take time out to be alone with God to rest and refocus
