It has been 2 years today since my Mom met her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, face to face. She was a woman of very little material means, yet when she went Home to Heaven she left a legacy which was eternally priceless.
What was/is my Mom's legacy? It's the life-lessons she taught my brother and me as we grew up: Integrity, Trustworthiness, Gentleness, Courage, Loyalty, Friendship, Compassion, Love and most importantly, Unwavering Faith in the Lord she loved with all her heart.
That legacy has become even more precious to me now since Mom has gone Home. To carry on her legacy my relationship with Christ must continue to grow, my walk with God must always be guided by His Holy Word through Scripture and my actions & words must always be led by the Holy Spirit.
There will be times when I feel I fail because I have tripped up, or not been open to God's leading. But Mom also taught me about forgiveness [giving and receiving]. God is eager to clean the slate when a heart is truly repentant and He gives us the courage to move forward again.
So, thank you Mom. I saw just the tip of your struggles but I witnessed your countless victories. I saw the crucial role trustworthiness played, bonding relationships securely. I know you would be humbled by the poem I wrote, but you vowed to lift up the Lord and honour Him first and foremost to your children, then to the world. You were a willing vessel with an outward focus on others.
May I take the baton and run forward--wherever God leads. May I honour Him with my life just as you did. May my life reflect His love.
May I, like you, become a Godly Woman of Faith.
"You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the Living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts." 2 Cor. 3: 3 NIV
