Being where you are is tough when your personal vision is in the midst of turmoil. Can you relate? It's easy to become disoriented, discouraged, and paralyzed. But especially now, we need to be out and engaged. Both in conversations and productive work. With people and organizations facing turmoil. However, in order to be a sharpened tool, equipped with a strong grounding in who you are, you need a clear vision.
* Examine your personal vision (who you are, where you are, where the Lord might move you next) so you can bring your whole self to what you do.
* Establish a fresh, personal vision for the coming season so you can move from the here and now into your promised future.
* Envision having peace with where you are so you can find purpose and live out a vision that inspires others.
