Hey famm, we’re back with another episode in our season on red flags! We have a very special guest, Lacrae here to talk about how a lack of vision can be a red flag. We’re specifically talking about how VISION is so important, especially for MEN in dating! We loved this conversation and can’t wait to dive in with you all.
First, let's chat about Lecrae's EPIC new Film, The Journey to Bethlehem
When it comes to vision, in dating Kait looked for a man who had vision. So, in dating can you tell someone has lack of vision?
With lack of vision can also be lack of follow through...
Can you really be with someone long term who has lack of vision? What are the risks?
If you had a young 20/30 year old guy who was struggling with vision, what would you to do encourage them? Or wake them up? Or is that just something God has to ignite?
Before we get into today’s episode, we love talking about vision because we can plan plan plan but the Lord establishes our steps. Did you ever envision ACTING in your vision for your life?
The crazy part is that Lecrae actually got into college with acting. He wanted to be an actor before he wanted to go into music, but ended up having this entire transformation and wasn’t sure that was the path he wanted to go down.
Lecrae actually never liked musicals but Hamiliton changed that for him! After seeing it he was like okay I’ll do one, but it has to be Hamilton level so this one is GOOD!
Do you think it was redeeming to have an acting passion before music and then see that come to fruition years and years later through this musical?
Lacrae said it’s wild and that he’s still trying to figure out what God is doing through it. He brought up Jeremiah 29:11, For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” God gave that promise to people who were in pain. That’s what this has felt like for Lecrae, like God saying that there is purpose for the things you’ve gone through. It’s so amazing to Him, that God would allow him to do this, something he dreamed about as a kid.
When God says, my people parish for lack of vision, that means there are consequences for you not having vision. For us to flow through life without a vision and a plan we put our selves in jeopardy. When you don’t have vision, you’re not prepare for the undercurrent like in the ocean, to take you sideways. Nobody drifts into discipline. Nobody drifts into success. Nobody drifts into a purposeful life. It’s done through intentionality, vision, and being attentive to what’s been put in front of you. So if you don’t have that, especially as a man, How can you be a leader in a relationship? How’s it even possible? You’re supposed to lead in love, lead in humility, lead in grace, how can you lead if you have no vision yourself?
