"Music playing" The children don't grow up. Our bodies get bigger but our hearts don't. With just a _____ God has got the brimstone turning every good thing to rust.

My 14-year-old son Steven got new glasses this week and when he came home from school my wife asked him well how did it go with your new classes? Were you able to finally see the board? He said even better. The whole world is in HD now. You know, a lot of people live each and every day without seeing a clear vision for their life. They have no overarching purpose. They can't really see the high definition life that God has for them. Proverbs 29:18 says, "Where there is no vision the people perish." That's a powerful verse. Basically saying, if you don't have a vision for your life your passion will eventually perish. If you don't have a vision for your marriage your love will eventually die. If you don't have a vision for your business your business will eventually crumble. Where there is no vision the people perish. When a church doesn't have a vision the people just go to another parish because where there is no vision the people perish. We are in a series I am calling Where the Wild Things Are. It's all about capturing the wonder of an untamed God. Today we are talking about Wild Vision because so many times we put limits on God and we try to make God small in our lives. When we do that we really put blinders over our own spiritual eyes that keep us from seeing God's vision for our life. There are three things about vision that I want you to see. First, vision is multifaceted. I don't just have one vision for my life. I have a vision for every role that I play in life. For example, I am a husband. I am married. So, when I wrote out my life vision several years ago a friend helped me and I spent some time really in prayer and wrote out you know, what I wanted to be, what I wanted to become and what I sensed from the Lord. By the way, vision is seeing not what is but what can be. That is real important. So, one of the parts of my life vision has to do with my marriage because I'm a husband and so this is the way I see myself as a husband. Not what I am, but what I'm becoming. What I can be. I am deeply committed and intentional in creating my marriage partnership with Chris fresh and new every day. I express myself completely trusting her completely as my most loving mirror empowering her to hold me accountable to my vision.
