Most mornings I drive to work before the rooster yells out at the rising sun.
Why oh why does that rooster crow so loudly?
I’ve heard the rooster cry out in the pitch black of night when it seems to be many hours before sun will blanket the earth with its rays.
A few mornings as I’m driving into work, the fog is so dense that I can barely see ten feet in front of me.
During these times, I must slow down lest I hit something with my car.
When the fog obscures my vision I slow to a snail’s pace and it is all I can do to move slowly but surely.
There’s an old passage “Where there is no vision the people perish.”
That seems so bleak.
Do people really perish when they lack vision?
Have you ever experience a life void of direction?
I had one of those moments about 13 years ago.
I was disheartened with my work.
I worked to earn my bread, but I left work feeling empty.
It seemed that I was just ticking off time to get through the week.
I felt limited by my job and I knew there was not future for me there.
My soul felt empty because I was at my wit’s end.
The worst part was I didn’t know how to move beyond that void.
I had no vision.
I had no direction.
I knew that I was meant for greater things, but I had no idea what those greater things were.
I wanted more.
I wanted to be fulfilled in my work.
I wanted to make a difference.
Yet I had no idea how to be fulfilled in my work.
I wanted something else, but I didn’t know what that something else was.
I needed to find a purpose for my work.
Until I worked on something beyond myself, I knew I would continue to be lost in the fog,.
Why are you doing what you do for work?
Do you love your work?
If not, ask yourself why?
Do you want to spend the rest of this year waiting for life to get back to normal.
If you’re ready to tak the bull by the horns then now is your moment.
Grab onto the vision and let it guide you through the fog to more certain times.
