Keeping the vision is all about staying focused on your goals in life and staying encouraged. It is very easy to get distracted in life with all of the challenges we can face sometimes. That is why it is so important to keep your vision in front of you and pursue it with all you've got! God has a plan for each of us and it is so important that we ASK him what that plan is and stay on course. It is okay if we slip sometimes on this path because that is what the Blood of Jesus has accomplished. When we fail just plead that Blood and keep pressing towards that vision. In my page I will discuss topics such as relationships, spiritual matters, fun things, and so much more. Just check it out!

"Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man]--blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he." Proverbs 29:18

What's the difference?

When I'm out in public sometimes I often look around at everyone and wonder which of these people are Christans and which of them are not.  It's sometimes very hard to tell the difference.  I mean everyone is wearing the same type of clothing, having the same types of conversations, and carrying themselves no different that anyone else.  How are we going to be a light to the world if we do not let our light shine?  As Christians we are SUPPOSED to be different and stand out from the crowd.  If we are "fitting in" then something is wrong.

If I am a Christian male and my pants are sagging just as much as the guy who is not saved how am I influencing him to do any better.  I understand that no person is perfect and we should all be renewing our minds on a daily basis, so I'm not judging anyone, but as Christians we should set an example for people to follow as we follow Christ.  We should never allow ourselves to be brainwashed by societal norms when we have the Word of God to stand on.  If you do not stand for something you will fall for anything.

Our choices have to be those that are informed by the Holy Spirit.  As my pastor said this Sunday we should do things that do not displease God.  Pressure from our peers or so-called friends only hinder us from being all that God called us to be.  Even when looking for a mate, as a man of God I find that task daunting at times because some of our women of God are wearing the same "freakum dresses" as they call it, that some worldly women wear.  I'm not saying that you should judge a woman's value by her attire, but how can I tell the difference between the two?

We are all a work in progress, but that is no excuse not to try our very best everyday and continue to be "a cut above" as children of the Most High God!


  1. I agree 120 percent! We as Christians must learn that we are represnting God at all times! We have to always mirror the fruits of the spirit in all of our ways everyday that we live! Glory is given to God when other people see our loving God in our actions and become curious about who we serve..... The Almighty !!

  2. Exactly, we must be a light in a dark place and lead others to Christ by living by his example. Thanks for your comments.

  3. If you are a Christian and you are not stepping on any toes, you are going the wrong way! Those who have truly repented should be moving in the opposite direction that the world is going. Therefore, they should be rubbing some people the wrong way. This, of course, makes those people angry ergo Jesus said in His Sermon on the Mount that we must BE willing to endure persecution as well as suffer for Christ's (the anointing's) sake. That is, we must be willing to suffer in order to receive the power of GOD in our hands in order to put it to work on our behalf. But since the average Christian today lacks the courage and is unwilling to suffer they would rather go along to get along. Now there should be no question in anyone's mind as to why the church appears to be powerless to erradicate the chaos and mess that surrounds the communities where it sets. They allow fear to overcome their faith and therefore have no grace which (regardless of what you have been told about unmerited favor) is in reality the power of GOD acting on behalf of the believer. After all is said and done because the church is as fearful as the world (Hey, those people have guns!) they get the same results as the world. What is the difference you ask? The difference will not become apparent until GOD's people stop trying to save their lives and become ready to lose them in order to live in Christ.

  4. Thank you for your thoughts! That was well put and needed to be said! Christians must stop being cowards!

  5. Amen to that!! We should shine and be the light of the World. :)
