Several weeks ago, God laid the word “legacy” on my heart in a moment of self-pity and despair when I was missing my mom. The word consumed my thoughts and I felt nudged to look at it more deeply. I began the process with my post here at The Weekend Brew two weeks ago-The Gift of Legacy – but as with all words, there are times when more needs to be said and questions need to be answered.
I challenged our Weekend Brew readers with several questions at the end of my post and one that stood out is, “Are we willing to live God’s Word in our lives and leave a legacy of God’s story woven with ours?” This fits in perfectly with my One Word for 2015, which is “Shine”.
I have lived many of my fifty-something years following the status quo especially when it comes to church. I have always done everything by the book — church on Sunday, praying when needed and when it was called for, and getting involved in the appropriate church activities.

Legacy of God…I like that concept. So many others (politicians, etc) try to leave legancies and do things that aren’t necessary in line with God’s will. My prayer is my legacy will be God’s word to my children and grandchildren.
Sharing God’s word is such a beautiful legacy. I know you have already been laying the path for this for years. Thank you for stopping by and encouraging me!
