A dear friend of mine lost her father yesterday.
My heart broke as I talked with her because I know the pain of losing someone you love.
I was blessed to have a Mom who loved Jesus with all of her heart.
Mom left this earth on September 22, 2009 and yet her legacy remains.
Dictionary.com defines legacy, as anything handed down from the past, as from an ancestor.
Mom passed down lots of things that we can teach our children and grandchildren.
But the most important thing Mom taught us, was to love Jesus with all of our heart.
She spent her whole life striving to know him better.
Strangely, Mom’s death showed us how to live.
Live to seek Jesus more, to love Him more and to look for His blessings.
Last Sunday, one of the men on our praise team sang, When it’s all been said and done.
After he sang it, I immediately wrote it down. I had heard it before but
not since my Mom had passed away. Wow, did it remind me of Mom.
I could have sat there and sobbed!
“When it’s all been said and done. There is just one thing that matters.
Did I do my best to live for truth? Did I live my life for you?”
Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Ephesians 4:1
Are you living a life worthy of your calling? What will your legacy be?
