Day 29: My family legacy

Day 29: My family legacy

My parent’s legacy is one of pain, hurt, deceit, manipulation, betrayal, rage and resentment. However, my legacy will be peace, love, hope, joy, compassion and Jesus. My children have what they need to succeed in life: lots of hugs and kisses, understanding, compassion and the Truth in Love.

My bloodline will not only know Jesus but this blog will be a living testament to Who God is and all that He has done for me and my family. They will all intimately understand what it means to live a victorious Christian life.

They will not experience night terrors, panic attacks, restlessness, insomnia, PTSD or abuse of any kind. Yes, in this world we will have trouble but they will know the answer to trouble and hard times is a Rock named Jesus Christ.

We are an answer to prayers prayed centuries ago
As I uncovered my husband’s family history, I found Knights Templar and Crusaders who defended the honor of Jesus and sought salvation for the whole world. Granted their zeal cost many their very lives. However, centuries ago, I’m certain they prayed for this generation and generations to come, that they would know and honor Jesus.

I will leave behind joy, comfort, peace and righteousness in Jesus Christ. The capstone of it all is Forgiveness.

Points to ponder
What legacy did you inherit? What legacy are you leaving behind? What can you do to leave a legacy rich in Christ Jesus?
