“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” - Proverbs 29:18
Sifting through the pieces written in the past few decades, I’ve found a few that stand the test of time. Here’s a thought on the questions that still arise in my life when considering my purpose:
For at least a few years, my questions have remained essentially the same: what do I want to do? Where will my life go? What is my personal sub-purpose within the larger framework of God’s grand narrative? What do I have to offer? What should I do? Where do I belong?
Only in the last few weeks, and really in the last few days, have I realized two things: the first is that I haven’t looked into myself to find my passions. They’ve remained on the margins of my mind, though the catalyst for my heart. This is dangerous because I know somehow my life is driven by passion. Maybe the name “Adam,” man of the earth, indicates this piece of me. My life depends, in some ways, on this discovery of where my passions lie.
The other thing I am realizing is that I really haven’t done much in the way of visioning or dreaming. I can dream for a few years from now, but why not 15, 20, 50 years from now? My focus needs to rest on finding the larger picture that surrounds the details I’ve only glimpsed in my mind and dreams.
