Revisiting our Vision

I just wanted to check in with those of you who decided to spend this past week or part of a week praying about your vision for your walk with the Lord, marriage, parenting, and ministry. I hope that it was a good time of prayer, time in the word, and of re-evaluation!

I had a good week and feel like God showed me through comparing scripture to the current reality of my life some things that He desires to be true for me and that I trust He will lead me in. For one thing, I kept coming back to Galatians 5 as God reminded me that His plan for me is freedom in Him through life with Him. He also showed me that so many of the specific things that He desires to be true of me and to grow me in depend heavily a day-by-day and moment-by-moment filling of and leading by the Holy Spirit. He reminded me of this first as I evaluated my desire to grow in patience with my kids, and it expanded out to so many other areas.  He showed me some great things about His will and His grace for me vs. my own desire plan and control and do according to what I think might be best. I also felt like he showed me some good but not burdensome tangible steps to take. It was a good week, and for once was a time where I feel like I was able to look at vision and future goal without burdening myself with tasks and a sense of being in charge of my own growth (though of course I do have a significant responsibility here) but to ask the Lord to lead me continually in this. How tempting it can be for me to just make more to-do’s for myself!

For those of you who spent some time this week praying over these things, how did the time go for you? Would anyone else like to share about any other recent times of evaluating vision? Are you excited about any specific things with regards to your future vision in these areas?

    Thank you for sharing about how God spoke specifically to you this week. That was so encouraging to read. You are a blessing!

    Shilo, you hardly get and F! I have a feeling that you just *might* have a few things going on in life these days. =) I hope you have a good time praying about these things when a space for it opens up!
