Today’s scripture: 2 Timothy 1:5-6
Timothy was blessed with a wonderful legacy of faith. His mother and his
grandmother were women of sincere faith, and they clearly instilled that faith
I have been very blessed with the same legacy. Both of my grandmothers were
strong women of faith. These women loved Jesus—heart, soul, mind, and strength.
They studied God’s word and prayed regularly for their children, grandchildren,
and great-grandchildren. And their prayers were felt, especially by me. I have
no doubt their prayers helped to bring this prodigal back to the arms of the
My mom is also such a woman. Her life has been far from perfect, but she
remains one of the strongest women of faith I know. She’s shown an
unconditional love to her children, and I know she prays for us regularly. She
prays for our health, for our protection, for our spiritual journeys.
And I pray I’m providing the same legacy for my “children.” My nieces and
nephews. Other “children of my heart.” The women to whom I speak. I pray God will use me to help future
generations to know Him and to become men and women of faith.
I couldn’t ask to leave a better legacy.
