Legacy

Legacy:

  1.  A gift by will especially of money or other personal property.
  2.  Something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor or from the past.

What will my legacy be?

My legacy, the thing that I possess of value is not just mine it belongs to all who are called His children and to all who are yet to be adopted. My legacy of immense value is my testimony of Christ. When I begin to think about the things the Lord has done in my life I realize that He has always been with me. He has healed me and restored me. He has protected me and defended me.  When I was destitute, He provided for me. He has been with me when I’ve won and lost. He has given me purpose and value. He has loved me and celebrated my accomplishments. He is proud of me. He corrects me and leads me.  Even when I didn’t acknowledge Him, He never abandoned me. He never tires of me; He comforts me.  I know that He loves me by what He did and does for me. He sent His Holy Spirit to be with me. He has saved my life and given me eternal life. He has forgiven my sin. He has adopted me as His son and made me an inheritor of His incredible riches. He has sacrificed His son for me. He has paid more for me than I will ever be worth.  His blessings past and future are never ending.

My legacy can be given to anyone, and it will never diminish in worth. A financial legacy or inheritance would be great, but it does not compare to the value of knowing Christ.

Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ. Philippians 3:8

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
