"I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants. They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by flowing streams. Some will say, ‘I belong to the Lord'; others will call themselves by the name of Jacob; still others will write on their hand, ‘The Lord's,’ and will take the name Israel."
My legacy is not as important to me as my children's and my children's children's relationship with God. Praying that my children would know and love the Lord was of paramount importance to me as they grew up. Now that they are adults and they do know and love the Lord, I pray different things for them (more about that next week).
I doubt that I will be remembered by many people after I have been gone for a few decades, but I think a legacy I would like to leave behind would be generation after generation of my husband's and my descendants saying, "I belong to the Lord."
