Part of God's plan for marriage is a man and a woman living with a shared mission, a shared purpose. Your marriage has a mission and as couples you can be intentional about walking that out. Here are some ways to do that:
1. Dreaming With Jesus: Put on some worship or instrumental music and get comfortable with your spouse. Ask the Lord "What do you have for us as a couple?". Take plenty of time to sit and listen and begin to write down what you're hearing. Share with one another and pray together about what you're hearing.
2. Dream list: Take at least 15 minutes to start listing your dreams and goals, in whatever order they come to you. Consider the following:Things to HAVE; Things to DO; Things to BE. Now within each of the categories, consider different aspects of your life and the lives of people around you; physical, financial, emotional, spiritual, legacy.
3. As you look at your lists, ask Holy Spirit to help you identify goals for the coming year. In order to include it on your list you should be able to answer these questions: What is your goal? What could you do? What will you do? When will you do it? Using your “Dreaming With Jesus” and your dreams & goals list decide on at least 10 goals to go after together in 2018. Hang your goals up where you can see them everyday.
