Guard your heart

Steven Furtick has a great post about guarding your heart.

The quote that got me was: "Be careful who you share your dreams with. Their negativity can contaminate the possibility before it ever has a chance to become a reality."

This is incredibly important. God's call on your life can often seem (even to you) like a crazy thing. God has called me to do some things in the ministry that most people around me would think are crazy. As a result, they will try to discourage me before I ever have a chance to work through it with God. When God gives you a vision for your life, it is your vision. Guard it fiercley. Because it is your vision and not the vision of other people, they won't all understand it and may try to stand in the way. They may even be convinced they are doing you a favor.

This is also why it's so important to stay close to God every day. As Perry put it so well today, "There is a fine line between faith and stupidity."

Make sure you're close to God so you know the crazy vision he's given you is, in fact, from him and not that burrito you ate last night.
