God’s answer to aimlessness is vision. Vision is a sense of enlightened direction from God. It is a crystal-clear picture of a preferred future. It is what God is empowering you to bring about in a particular area of life.
It can become easy to become discouraged, to wallow in self-pity, and even give in to self-hate if we’re always meditating on where we aren’t, who we’re not, and what we haven’t accomplished compared to those who appear to have their acts together. When negative self-talk comes seeping into our brains about ourselves, it’s time to course-correct our thought-life.
