My own definition of Perception -Is to see beyond your present moment of existence or circumstance into your desired end!
Today I thought about my own desires of the many years I have waited for specific dreams to become a reality in my life. I know when I hear God's voice, as He has spoken the promises of a great future. I know when he speaks, yet then to "WAIT" -Still looking ahead, staying focused on the prize before me, even though some of these very specific dreams haven't happened in the time frame that I hoped for.
