Vision Casting

Often on the missions field we talk about "vision casting.” Having a vision for what you are doing is important because it causes you to focus on the long term goal and what you can do currently to help achieve it.

Through the Lord's grace, I am "mommy" to two funny and beautiful gals. Long before they were born, I was praying for them and asking the Lord for wisdom in parenting and raising the ones He was entrusting us with. Little did I know then, that I would be praying that more and more as I try to live out this calling of motherhood.

Now, I'm not sure I've ever called it "vision casting" but if you ask me what my vision is for them, I know what it is. My vision is that they would walk intimately with the Father, that they have joy that is unspeakable and peace that passes all understanding. I pray for them to know His salvation the very first time His Spirit calls them to Himself and that we, as parents, have given them the knowledge of who He is and the gift that He has given.

Daily, I am held accountable to the Lord for what I am doing to help lead my girls to His throne. From the silly songs we sing in the van to the conversations we have when they are being disciplined . . . it's all a part of the ultimate vision. For me, inside of the calling of motherhood, there is no greater vision than to know that my children love the Lord. They are my missions field, right inside my home wherever my home may be.

Who is your missions field? What is your vision?
