52. Back To School Again


Stretched thin: The sheer size and complexity of our modern means of communication and its facility to do so had led me to become stretched and shallow. It is not an attractive thought. Are you exceeding your ability to sit down and think something out?

Do a small thing: Great visions for worldwide change are seductive. They happen but they are few and far apart in world history. Better to do something quite small and do it well?  Have you done something really well…is it big or small?

Prophetic visions: Some say they have ceased. There is no definite answer if this is so. I “saw” something and wrote it down for all to see. Does it make any sense to you?

    Stretched thin: Perhaps we become stretched thin when we allow circumstances to pull at us and yet God is asking us to slow down so He can settle us down. What communication is better than spending time with him; opening ourselves to trust a direction but allowing him to lead us to its completion? I can “think something out” for way too long. Yet I have known
    the gift of a nudge to “stop thinking” and “start acting.

    Do a small thing: I have observed others who have worldwide visions for doing great things but most often I know people who have a vision for a section of the world (geographic) where they can realistically work and make a difference. If I have done anything really well, my hope is that it is “big enough” to change a life for the better. Perhaps our best accomplishments are the ones that stay hidden from our view but have made an impact only God knows – and smiles.

    Prophetic visions: There are those in the Christian community whose spiritual gift is in the prophetic.

    I do believe in prophetic visions. It is not a gift I have specifically known in my life although it can sometimes align with my gift of exhortation. I believe in taking time for discernment accompanied by God’s peace to bring a vision to its completion. It is why I love the verse from Habakkuk 2:2. “And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”
