The most difficult moments for me as an entrepreneur are moments of darkness. When I can’t see the big picture and I can’t see the whole plan played out, I get anxious.
Clarity isn’t always certain, and darkness will always come. In those moments of darkness, it's easy for us to lose sight of the vision and get frustrated, possibly even make bad decisions.
But the hope for a Christian entrepreneur is that there is a LIGHT that is always on and forever shining a light at our feet.
In Isaiah 50:10 we read “Let the one who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the Lord and rely on their God.”
Maybe we’re not supposed to see visions all the time on purpose. Maybe God designed it this way so we can keep our eyes on the next step we’re taking, not the road 5 miles ahead. A runner needs to have two perspectives: the big picture glance, but the constant stare at the ground in front of him.
Don’t get discouraged when the vision goes dark. Rely on God as the lamp on your feet. That’s God telling you he needs you focused on today…on the now.
ACTION STEP: What’s the ONE THING you need to accomplish today? Forget the BIG goals, what’s the small objective you can today?
