Discovering the Vision Jesus Has For You [EP:020]

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11:28-30 MSG


Fall will soon be upon us and once it starts it feels like one big jump to the end of the year. When you get to the end of 2022, what do you want to be different for you? Who do you want to be? In this episode of the Margin Maker podcast, I take you through some of the questions I use with my clients as they create healthy rhythms and boundaries and care for their soul.


Before you make a plan of action you need to be able to see the vision Jesus has for you.


Pull out a piece of paper, a journal, or something to capture what Jesus will say to you. Get into a quiet space (and set a timer if that helps you stay present in the moment.) Read over the passage from Matthew above and hear the promise Jesus speaks over you as He invites you to do life with Him...His way.


When you're ready, move to the questions.


Discovering the Vision Jesus Has For You

  • What's your vision for me? My family? My life and leadership?
  • What relationships would you like me to focus on?
  • What things are most important? What should I prioritize?
  • What rhythms and boundaries do you want me to create or maintain?
  • Where are the busy seasons coming up in the months ahead and when should I create margin before moving on to the next thing?
  • What obstacles could get in the way of what you desire for me?
  • Who do I need to communicate with? 


Don't self edit and give every excuse as to why you can't do what you are sensing is needed. Just capture what Jesus is saying to you.
