Legacy of Jesus Thoughts...

Just a thought that came to mind this morning.
You are documenting hope for future generations when you write down your Jesus thoughts and life experiences and scriptures that are dear to your heart.  I have already had one of our boys ask about wanting to have his grandmother's bible someday. I pray that there will be a day that our children will treasure the bible I read from because it will have drawings and words written down that meant something to me and that helped me live the life God called me to.

I believe that the scriptures that we write down and journal will be invaluable to our children in the future. They will be a great witness to what we felt life was about and a timetable of living for God and for His Kingdom.

I know that it takes time and it is more work than pulling scripture up on your phone quickly but there is something about even just taking 30 minutes of slow dwelling with God in a Bible that you hold in your hands and taking the time to write about Him. (Even just a few words.)  I pray that when I am gone that our children and grandchildren will see truths and gain spiritual knowledge and courage from what we have taken time to write down and witness to about God.

Dwelling in the Word is indeed a grand adventure...
Maybe it is work at first. Yes. But then you see it is alive and relevant to your life.
Then a little fire ignites. You become thirsty for it. It changes your perspective on everyday happenings.  You begin to see how the Spirit that lives within you lives and moves and has it's being in you.  Amazing.
Acts 17:24 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. 25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. 26 From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. 27 God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. 28 ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’
Blessings! Amy

You know, I even like reading my own little notes and things in my Bible. It reminds me of an important truth or an explanation made. I know someone who is doing a journaling Bible just so it will be given to her grandchildren someday!
