Leaving a Legacy

I’m leaving a legacy.

The question I’m asking myself, however, is what kind of legacy am I leaving?

If I were to die today, would those who knew me remember me as a faithful servant to my LORD? Have I been a faithful daughter and sister? Would they remember me as someone who, to the very end, could speak of almost nothing except for my Heavenly Father and remember that I was committed to following His leading over my life?

The LORD has been teaching me lately that how I spend every single minute is important. I may not know why they are of importance now, but I can rest in the assurance that my Heavenly Father does.

“So teach us to number our days
    that we may get a heart of wisdom.” — Psalm 90:12 ESV

I want to leave a legacy of faithfulness while I seek to know the LORD and follow His commandments. It is my prayer that the LORD will continue to work on me and change me according to His will and purpose into the person He would have me to be.

What kind of legacy are you leaving?

Sunday

It is quietly raining here at our home on this particularly warm afternoon.

We’ve spent the morning at church with our sweet church family, worshiping the LORD and enjoying blessed fellowship with one another.

I love Sundays. It is nice to have a day to simply rest and recharge for the upcoming week!

Psalm 92 (ESV)
A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath.

“1 It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
2 to declare your steadfast love in the morning,
and your faithfulness by night,
3 to the music of the lute and the harp,
to the melody of the lyre.
4 For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work;
at the works of your hands I sing for joy.

5 How great are your works, O Lord!
Your thoughts are very deep!
6 The stupid man cannot know;
the fool cannot understand this:
7 that though the wicked sprout like grass
and all evildoers flourish,
they are doomed to destruction forever;
8 but you, O Lord, are on high forever.
9 For behold, your enemies, O Lord,
for behold, your enemies shall perish;
all evildoers shall be scattered.

10 But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox;
you have poured over me fresh oil.
11 My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies;
my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.

12 The righteous flourish like the palm tree
and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 They are planted in the house of the Lord;
they flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They still bear fruit in old age;
they are ever full of sap and green,
15 to declare that the Lord is upright;
he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.”

May you have a very blessed Sunday, dear friend!
