Family Vision


Do you have a vision that you live for each day?

Scripture has this to say:

Proverbs 29:18:

"Where there is no vision, the people perish."

I believe in this scripture. A couple of years ago I was basically a leaf blown by the wind. I had no purpose for my life. I just went where ever the “wind blew me.” I got up, I went to class, I came home, I did nothing.

I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and I had no purpose. This caused me to go through a time where I was almost lifeless. Then I came across Proverbs 29:18. This scripture kept coming up. My family kept talking about it, I read it in several books, I heard someone preach on it… Then suddenly it just clicked.

I needed a reason to get up each morning. I need a purpose so I could spend my days productively. This is why I think having a vision is so important.

I labeled this post family vision but, your vision does not have to line up with your other family members. It can be your own personal vision and one that you might share with your own family someday.

This is my family’s vision that has become my own personal vision.

Our vision is:

Love3  iKAN Love3  -Love3 stands for Love God, Love yourself, and Love others. iKAN stands for Influencing Kingdoms And Nations. So our vision means to Love God, Love yourself, and Love others to Influence Kingdoms And Nations to Love God, Love themselves, and Love others.

What are some of your family/personal visions?

I pray that each of you seeks God until He gives you your own vision! I then pray that you live each day focused on your vision!

Check back tomorrow for my last blog post! It will be a Fashion Friday post.

Thank you for your support!

Love, Kathleen :)

  1. I remember on college one of my profs kept on talking about how we each need our own personal "mission statement." He even assigned it once for class. I feel like I skipped that assignment because I couldn't pin-point exactly what my mission in life was. I remember he put his own on all of his emails. I can't remember it word for word, but it was about dying to himself and living for Christ.

    Personally, I haven't really liked the idea of narrowing my life down to one statement or phrase because life goes in so many directions. Although as I've gotten older, I've seen it more and more. It's similar to your family's mission: love. My freshman year of college 1 John 3:16-18 kept on coming up. I know that is God's mission for me. I know that we are all called to love others... but I have felt a personal calling to love other people. I don't know how He wants me to do it or anything like that. All I know is that God has called me to love. Which is partly why I named my blog "Love Woke Me Up This Morning." :D
