The Power of a Woman with a Vision

“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.” Joel A. Barker
God gives us all vision and purpose. Some come in the form of a dream while others flows through the heart. Without clear vision, we are merely walking without true purpose. In order to fulfill our vision, we must act through faith. Faith without work is death. This is the same with vision. Vision without work is dead. A person without purpose will parish. To complete our purpose on earth, we must move through our action to carry out our calling. God had a vision which was to create mankind. Through his actions he created man, Adam. He created a woman, Eve, to be a helper.
We cannot complete our vision without assistance. Similar to Eve, God created others women to be our help mates. This includes family, friends, associates and strangers. Women were all designed to aid each other in achieving our vision. As women, unity we can conquer the world. God created us to be supporters. Why must we feel that we should compete?
Sarai, Abraham’s wife, whom God changed her name to Sarah was pregnant with a vision. God designated Sarah to be the mother of many nations, people and kings. She had the responsibility to think far beyond her lifetime to birth her purpose. She worked through her vision, which affected the way she taught and trained her son Isaac. Often, our vision may seem impossible. Sarah bearing a child at the age of ninety? To the natural eye this is impossible. The impossible introduces doubt into your vision. Unable to believe in herself, Sarah asked Hagar to conceive Abraham a child. Sarah’s doubt paralyzed her ability to work in her vision.
Many times our vision will impact others. Sarah’s vision influenced Isaac and his vision. Regardless large, small or fearful our vision may be, we should work in boldness. Instead of pondering on what will happen, ask yourself, what are the results if I don’t fulfill my vision?
Will you put action with your vision?
“God, give me grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
