"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life."
Proverbs 13:12, New King James Version

Hope is the propeller of faith, while faith causes our vision to have vitality as we work towards transforming our desired vision into reality. There is nothing like putting in the sweat equity necessary to accomplish a God-given goal and basking in the accomplishment of it as a long awaited dream manifests right before our eyes. What is gained in the end makes all the hard work worth the effort even though challenges may have risen along the way. It is infinitely more important and inspiring to focus on the fruitfulness and fulfillment rather than the frustration and fatigue of every effort. By doing so, the motive of every mission becomes the vision for all effort undertaken--to work with purpose while enjoying life.
Prayer to Ignite Action:
God, I place all of my hope and expectation in You today. I ask that You will give me clarity of thought, purpose, and vision for my life. Show me the plan that You have for me today, and give me directions for setting strategic goals so that the vision You have given me will become reality in the right time and season. In the meantime, I thank You for the patience and plan I have today to follow through with appropriate actions as I enjoy the life and work You've given me. In Jesus' name. Amen.
