Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Proverbs 29:18 (KJV)
The days draw near as well as the fulfillment of every vision.
Ezekiel 12:23 (NAS)
What is the truest gift that you, actors, models, and talent for Christ, give us, your watchers? Vision.

Your words, movements, and songs breathe hope into our souls. As God gave you talent to stir the fires within us, so we ignite from the light you reflect: the light of the Lord.

The world calls it charisma, yet it is truly a dazzling display of the Holy Spirit.

God blesses you, His stars, who dream to perform, and He blesses your dreams.

Do you face dream haters? Dance around the murky haze of doubt. Blow through the dark clouds of denial with lively words. 'Mount up with wings like eagles' (Isaiah 40:31). Run, walk, write, act, and sing--but don't stop moving. Don't stop performing.

The fire in your heart to share your gifts jumps right into a fan club of believers. 'For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God' (2 Timothy 1:6).

We cherish the hope you ignite your vision helps clear our eyes. Your courage to stand up and speak out gives us courage to follow our own callings and destinies.

Never give up on your dreams and visions. In 'such a time as this' (Esther 4:14), dreams will be fulfilled.

'For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry' (Habakkuk 2:2-4).

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
