( joel's talking about a couple he knows that moved to a large city & things weren't working out. so, they get all dressed up and go to this plush hotel , & their sitting in the lobby) were they wasting their time ? no, they were expanding their vision, putting themselves in an environment where they could see themselves as successful . they were looking beyond where they were to where they wanted to be, and letting faith blossom in their hearts. perhaps you, too, need to change your environment .( and man i really do)quit walking through your day worrying. instead go find somewhere you can dream . it maybe at the lake or a grassy lawn under the autum leaves. find someplace where your faith can be elevated . get into an atmospherewhere people build you up rather than tear you down . find a place where people will encourage you & challenge to be your best . spend time with people who inspire you to reach new heights. if you associate with successful people , before long, their entusiasm will be contagious and you will catch that vision. stay in an atmosphere of victory/ you will delvelope a winning mind-set/ hang with people who have faith and a belief. it's time to soar and stop crawling ...if you'll continually contemplate the goodness of god, living with faith and expectancy, god will take you places you've never dreamed of and you'll live at a level you have never before imagined.
