Everybody that I know has a GPS these days. People today just don’t want to be in a position that leaves them lost and vulnerable. We have a strong desire to know where we’re going and how we’re going to get there. We also want to know what things lie ahead that could impact us from reaching our destination. Today I urge you to apply these same desires that you have for reaching your earthly destinations toward reaching your Godly destinations for your marriage.
What is your vision for your marriage? Do you have goals that you and your spouse discuss frequently, but never put them on paper?
Habakkuk 2:2 says, “…Write the vision and make it plain on tables, that he may run that readeth it.”
Every marriage needs to have a mission statement that guides who they are and what they believe. Our mission statement should be accompanied by our vision for our marriages. Your vision will guide you in reaching your goals, and help you in determining which routes to take to arrive there safely without long delays. Writing a vision for your marriage and family can be one of the most gratifying things you can ever do as a couple. It should be used daily to guide your choices alongside God’s word.
Joseph and I came together to create our vision for the first time last year. It helped us to look at where we were falling short in the eyes’ of God. It also helped us to see how to improve our marriage and family life. We are still working towards our goals today! Will you begin with the end in mind today? Start working on your vision and mission as a couple and watch God honor your desire to line up with His word.
Things to remember:
- Writing your marriage vision should be done together.
- Be sure to consult God on what should matter most in your marriage.
- Use your finish product to guide your marriage towards Godly living.
- Revisit your marriage vision quarterly to discuss how well you’re doing at accomplishing your goals.
May God do a good work in you. I pray that your marriage vision becomes a tool that will lead you to becoming one. And remember….. the bible tells us that without a vision the people will perish.(Proverbs 29:18)
Yours in Christ,
