[Audio clip: view full post to listen] When I first arrived in Seminary (about twenty years ago) I was walking through the dormitory when I heard some beautiful piano music wafting down the corridor. I followed it's captivating vibes until I found a Korean student, eyes closed and heart raised, simply pouring out his heart to God in simple songs of worship on the piano. I didn't understand the words (my Korean skills are quite rusty ;) but I understood the spirit of the music -- the spirit of love and adoration being poured out with every touch of the keys. I sat nearby and had a wonderful time with the Lord as he was playing. When he finished I went over and asked if he would show me, in less than five minutes (that's all the time I had left), how I could begin to learn to play the piano.

Vision vs. busyness

Vision Key

One thing I keep getting reminded of is the importance of living with vision. It's so easy in this day and age to get so busy with so many things ... sometimes to the neglect of what's most important. Have you ever stopped to identify your personal "mission statement"?
