This legacy I am receiving is one I am diligent to pass on to my own children. I do so very imperfectly, my words are not always kind and my actions can be selfish. But then there are times when I strive to be the right example they need from a mom, I attempt to speak truth not just as a mom but as a one who has been there and done that already.
To really be intentional about the legacy I am passing on I have been mulling over just a few ways others have passed on their legacy of faith to me. I am thankful for the legacy I have been given and desire to be a legacy giver of the faith that is the Rock I stand upon.
Lord, thank you for those whose lives illustrate a portrait of genuine faith.
For I too am watched and want nothing more than to also live a life reflecting the authenticity of living out my faith before others.
Lord, thank you for the grace that others have given to me;
they have patiently endured my missteps.
Grace has given me the courage to live a life of vulnerability
gracing others with this gift as we travel together down various paths.
Lord, thank you for a foundation of truth passed down to me from your Word and from those committed to preaching your Word.
May I too preach your Word with my life giving strength and wisdom to others as they seek solid footing.
Lord I thank you for the beauty manifested from the deep roots that faith produces.
Make my roots continue to seek after Living Water exposing the beauty of my own faith
a faith that my own children will hopefully one day choose as their own
and carry on the legacy of faith to the next generation.
