Legacy


I have been considering my days. What is worthy of time, what is futile? What deserves my attention, where should I linger, what should I ignore?
A heritage is being woven behind me. My children will rest in the creases of the garment called legacy being prepared as I walk out my destiny.

Legacy calls for prudence ...

What is the most important baton to place in the hands of my children?
What would help them the most to endure to the end?
Is there something to be passed that would carry them through the difficult seasons, encouraging them on their way?
Oh, that they would enjoy the Lord as I have ...
that they would they listen for His whisper, His song, His laughter,
and they would delight in His presence never losing their awe of Him!

So I pray~

Oh, Lord, let me pass these wonders on to my children. Let this be their heritage! Their greatest delight!
I will be a failure if they do not have revelation of who You truly are!
Let joy spring in their heart like a fountain!
Let Your promises set passion to dancing in their hearts!
Let childlike wonder and awe inspire them to seek you more!
Oh, that they would bask in Your beauty, eye witnesses of Your glory,reveling in Your joy!
This is my petition! That they would be great in You,Lord! Mighty men and women of valor who love Your name!

Most of all, may they enjoy You forever, truly experiencing the pleasure that is only found in You!

Amen

You're children are so blessed to have a mamma that passes a rich heritage of loving the Lord, Cheri.

I miss you! How are you doing? I think of you often and always with joy. You are a precious, precious lady.

Happy Valentine's Day!

God has been impressing this message on my heart lately, too, Cheri. Seems like confirmation for me, so thanks for your obedience in sharing.
Hope to see you again at She Speaks later this year.

I love the song, "Legacy," by Nicole Kidman. Sings to what you shared here.
Blessings, my friend,
