What is your vision for your marriage?

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,

  1. Thank you Cassandra. This is a great article with practical instruction that offers a realistic apprach for any couple. My husband and I also incorporate this practice of setting goals together. How can two walk together…except they be agreed. Amos 3:3
    Thanks again!

  2. Amen, amen, amen! That was an awesome well thought out article on the goals for our marriages based on the vision and making sure the support is in place to see it come to past. I believe in this world there is so much to get caught up in that we neglect and not necessarily on purpose but more to the point just somewhat not having the structure in place somewhat likened to a corporation that has a head and a body. As Cherisse said per Amos 3:3 how can two or more walk together unless they agree. We must as Godly women know our place in the structure of the covenant and hold-fast to what God has ordained us to do and do it. The Word is clear and true cleave-to your husband and become one. In that direction we can find peace, hope and an abudance of love. We know love covers a multi-tude of sins. So when we are dissappointed we can still recognize the blessing in it that we must love with Agape love that love that our Lord first showed to us in sacrifice. As we know the bible says what greater love that God has for us that He is indeed mindful of us. He will supply all that we need according to His riches in Christ Jesus. We have but to be holy, righteous and set apart for His Will to ALWAYS be available to be done in our lives. If we can commit individually to HIs Will He will bring all of our collective plans to pass as we journey together in what then can be called Holy Matrimony.
    Amen!
