What legacy are you leaving?

Nichole Nordeman, a Christian American singer-songwriter and an eight-time Dove Award winner, sings a song entitled “Legacy,” which is about doing something eternally significant with our lives that points people to Christ.

I want to leave a legacy
How will they remember me?
Did I choose to love?
Did I point to You enough
To make a mark on things?
I want to leave an offering
A child of mercy and grace who
blessed your name unapologetically
And leave that kind of legacy

Soul Search: What legacy are you leaving that unapologetically blesses the Lord’s name? How will your understanding that you were born with a God-given lifetime dream impact your day-to-day living?

My Sweet Yahweh, I want to leave a legacy, an offering, that blesses your name unapologetically. Help me to do so, starting immediately.
