I have the pleasure of reading posts over at Marsha's Musings. She is such a blessed writer, and I am continuously encourage by her posts! I love her "Hope Chest Legacy" post, where she may write about one of her children or grandchildren. Or the people that have influenced her life for the Lord. Reading this post really convicted me.
WHAT KIND OF LEGACY AM I LEAVING, NOT ONLY MY CHILDREN, BUT FUTURE GENERATIONS?
I am so busy right now that I bearly have time to teach my children scripture; to delve into the Word of God on a profound level; to pray without ceasing for all the generations to come after me!
Thinking about this NEW year, and what the Lord desires for me and my family, I cannot help but think that KNOWING Him, and BEING with Him should top my list! Stop with all the busyness! Let go of the things of this world! Put his things first!
The things I cannot control
judging others and leave that to Him
doing, and doing, and doing
My children and their eternal relationship with God
Hiding the word in my heart and theirs
Praying for them and my extended family who so desperately need a clear picture of who God really is!
My husband and our relationship
My spiritual legacy: How will they remember me?
