To See Through Your Eyelids

Last week I developed a blog post titled "Your Vision, Your Faith, Your Future", which depicts certain necessities for a better, healthier and happier life. In the spirit of this post, I wanted to share a similar outlook for living better today than we did yesterday and days past.

Last Sunday while at church, the pastor was speaking to us about "seeing" our future. To visualize in our mind and in our hearts to what our eyes cannot "see". To look beyond our present as we long for bigger & better things that lay ahead. The question is "how do we get there?" How do we get from point 'A' to point 'B'?

Ever heard of a GPS? Of course you have. In this day & age, who hasn't. Well, for those of you who have been shunned from the advances in technlogy, GPS is an abbreviation for Global Positioning System. The GPS provides accurate location and time information for an unlimited number of people in all weather, day and night, anywhere in the world. In other words, you can be anywhere on this earth and as long as you have a GPS, you can use this tool to let you know your exact location.

Believe it or not, we too have an internal GPS built into our bodies.......in our minds and our hearts. This GPS unit was installed in our bodies way back from the time we were in our mother's womb. Once we were born & being the infants that we were back then, we really didn't know how to operate it until we got little bit older & wiser. As we acquired knowledge, we became more efficient at using our very own GPS system. But where does this GPS take us to? Well, that all depends on you!

When you close your eyes, what do you see? What are the things you 'see through your eyelids'? Aside from the darkness before you? Look beyond it and tell me what you 'see'. There you go - you see your dreams, aspirations and goals of the future. You see the things that lead to a better, healthier & happier life. You see success, both personally & professionally. You see the things that have yet to happen but as long as you have the will, determination, and the desire to work hard to get it....you'll get there. That's where your internal GPS comes into play. However, I do recommend that you take the furthest destination from where you want to go as you may be surprised as to just how far you may get.

So I ask you again, when you close your eyes what are the things you 'see through your eyelids'?
