Your vision statement is the force that will sustain you when your mission statement seems too heavy to endure, enforce, or engage. All significant

changes and inventions begin

with your vision.

“You miss 100% of the shots you never take.”

“Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life;

everyone must carry out a concrete assignment

that demands fulfillment.
Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated,
thus, everyone’s task is unique as his specific opportunity.”

Victor Frankl author of Man’s Search for Meaning.

The Lesson

The Gift of Peace

Peace and Happiness are your ultimate goals in life. Living with peace of mind in total joy would be an ideal state. A life in harmony with no fear or anger can be yours. You can control your chaos and forbid fear and doubt from entering your soul. You can live in peace although you walk through the valley of the shadow of death. There will always be distractions, temptations, evil, horror, and chaos surrounding your path and attempting to keep you from reaching your destination. However, you can continue on your path by not allowing them to affect you. Let peace be your guide.

The Gift of Peace releases you from all earthly burdens and that is why it is a gift of the Foundation of Freedom. Peace will be your guide among this land-mine filled journey, as you seek your purpose and way in life. Peace can be your balance as you strive to fulfill your dreams.

45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. 46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is to say, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
Matthew 45-46 KJV

The train rides up the Bay of Hiroshima. The ride was enjoyable and the surroundings were tranquil and full of life. What would I see in Hiroshima? The evil of mankind in its ugliest form. As we exited the train station, to our surprise, there were no great signs, Ground Zero This Way. In fact, there were no signs written in English. Asking a few locals, they kindly pointed in a certain direction, without speaking; they knew our destination. Hiroshima is a beautiful city, busy with people, buildings, and trees. In fact, the city is very interesting and full of life. The Castle of Hiroshima looked incredible! We took a ride to the top of a skyscraper and looked over to view the beautiful bay and the valley. The people were so kind to us, and proud that we were interested in their city.
We then came upon a site I will never forget. There were groups of young elementary school children sitting together; drawing what would seem to be a church like building. It was the A-bomb Dome. The building’s dome was in ruins; a skeleton of its former self. The children laughed and smiled at us. They waved at us. This in fact, was the temple, right below the airburst in Hiroshima. Ground Zero. We walked across the bridge to go to Peace Park, the site of the Hiroshima Memorial. We came in contact with many people. The people of our own age (twenties and thirties), waved at us and looked at us with curiosity. Only in the sense that something bad had happened near came from the older generation, with a few glances of fear and anger. It was hard to believe that this was the place, where people were burned from an unknown explosion, and where people had jumped into the river only to discover that the water was boiling.
As we approached, there was a statue of a father holding his wife and child looking up to the sky, seemingly asking,
“Why? How could this happen?” The tears streamed down my face as I realized that on this very spot, innocent people had lost their lives, and had vanished from this earth without mercy, or reason. We must learn to live in peace and to love one another.
We are all brothers and sisters.

The Path

Creating Your Mission Statement for Work and for Life

by Laurie Beth Jones

What is your mission in life? Laurie Beth Jones explains in
The Path, the importance of knowing your mission. She provides a step-by-step process to help you discover yours. You will look at who you are as a person, as well as your talents, gifts, and passion in life. With this review, you will have a personalized mission statement. Most people do not have a mission and therefore wander through life without purpose.

After you have found your mission, you must see it clearly in your mind’s eye. Writing a vision statement will reinforce what and why you will accomplish with your mission.

It is the key to finding your path and the mission you choose to follow. A successful vision statement is written down in present tense. Your mind does not know the difference between reality and imagination. If you can imagine yourself accomplishing something, your mind will accept this experience as reality and harness the power to align itself with that vision. The exercises to find your mission and vision will direct your life on a new path.

History has left clues from the past, but you must be able to find them. Laurie Beth Jones has brought these clues to life for you. She provides case studies of biblical elders who had the odds against them, but overcame them with their vision. You will begin to identify with the elders as you find parallels with your life and the lives of Nehemiah, Joan of Arc, Queen Esther, Joseph, Moses, and Ruth. Using their experiences to guide your own life, you will create a special bond identifying with some of the elders. By the end of the book, you will have a complete life plan with a new mission and vision.

Bible Verse

A Gentile Shows Her Faith

21 Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon.

22 And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed.”

23 But He answered her not a word.
And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, “Send her away, for she cries out after us.”

24 But He answered and said, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

25 Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, help me!”

26 But He answered and said, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.”

27 And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.”

28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.

Matthew 15:21-28 NKJV


The 23rd Psalm

1 The LORD is my shepherd;

I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:

he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul:

he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness

for his name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil:

for thou art with me;

thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me

in the presence of mine enemies:

thou anointest my head with oil;

my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy

shall follow me all the days of my life:

and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Psalm 23
