I received what I call a "download," a complete idea, vision of what I felt I was called to do with my life about 12 years ago. I wrote it down. I outlined it. I researched it. I cut out pictures of it, I bought a filing system to store all of the ideas that went with it, I bought books on the best way to obtain it, I tweaked it, tweaked it some more, I prayed about it, I talked to people about it, I daydreamed about it and I dream of it still. I am living in the part of this Scripture, "Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come."
Sometimes I'm patient about it, sometimes I get frustrated and ask, "Why not yet?!" Then I release it back to Him again, as I believe it came from Him in the first place, and when He knows all is ready, then 'it will surely come.'
"Write the vision and make it plain on tablets (chisel it on something permanent - wow!), that he may run who reads it." (Emphasis mine). I know I feel like running forward when I read over all that I've written down. It's inspiring and invigorating and gives me the hope to keep moving towards it believing He will bring it to pass.
The point is to write it down. Write down the idea, the dream, the goal. Pray for Wisdom, direction, timing, resources and patience. And daily work on growing into the person you must be in order for the vision to be seen. Remember, "For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come."
What dream, vision, goal do you need to write down, research, pray about? I encourage to begin by writing it down, stick it in your fridge, pray about it daily and you will *soon* see it come to pass.
