Vision and commitment

From Pastor Charles Neiman:

Commitment is the inner strength that keeps you going when everyone is giving up.  It is only as strong as the decision you make toward the commitment.  Greater commitments brings greater miracles.

Write your vision because, “the prayers of the saints stock the shelves of your life.”

Ask (for your vision) with a sense of stewardship and a sense of responsibility.

Ask for enough for you and for you to be a blessing to others.

“What we ask for must include the good of others or we ask amiss.”

Don’t ask with envy, strife, jealousy or competition. Ask for courage, direction, strength, money.

From our family and friends, ask for support, forgiveness, explanations, understanding, and of actions and decisions.

Asking opens doors, brings light,  and opens discussions between people.

“If you don’t ask, the only answer you can have is no.”

If you are doing something and it isn’t working, don’t waste your life on it. Go do something else. Make your vision wasn’t God inspired, maybe it was pizza inspired.
