Today I learned some new and very interesting things from a preacher I know and
many of you have heard..Voddie Baucham .....
Today was on multi-generational vision and how we pass that down to our children so that they will pass it down to their children etc....Scott and I are first generation Christians and so everything we are doing with our kids is new territory. We want more than anything to be a family that Glorifies God in all we do and say. We want to be able to see the fruit of the 4th generation. Our great grand kids..So you may ask yourself how do we as a family do this..
Well lo and behold the answer is in Jeremiah 29v5
5 build houses and dwell in them;plant gardens and eat their fruit.
6Take wives and begot sons and daughters;take wives for your sons and give your daughters to husbands, so that they may bear sons and daughters-that you may be increased there, and not diminished.
So Voddie went on to say these little gold nuggets to help us leave a Legacy.
1} lay down Roots, build a house and dwell in it. I think our generation needs to
stay home more. We are so busy trying to rush from thing to thing that we don't dwell in our homes anymore we simply sleep there.(just my thoughts)
2}un-pack your bags-
3}Be a Rock for your kids. Be a stable person in their life so I believe in order for you to be a rock for your kids you have to be around them you have to be available.
4)this is the best one- Be base for your kids- Remember when we were kids and played freeze tag? Base was the safe place. The place you ran to. The place where no-one could tag you. Safe!! I want to be base for our kids. I want our home to be a place that even when they move on that they love coming home to because it feels safe.
If I get nothing else right in this world I pray that I become a forever student in learning how to love my kids and pass down a Legacy that will travel down the generations to come. I cannot do this without the grace and love and forgiveness of my heavenly Father so with Him I will walk down this path...
Pray a little prayer for my gang tonight.I'm afraid the stomach virus has hit the White House....Yuck!!
