Legacy Principles Promises

For the next six weeks I will be sharing Legacy Principles that I believe are critical for each person to understand and implement in life. Homeschooling is not just one more thing to do; it is an opportunity to see the significant difference you can make in the life of your child. It is about your family name and legacy. It is about what you will give your life to. As homeschooling parents, you have already committed to making a difference in the educational arena of your child. You have given up personal time and maybe income. As a result you must establish truths and principles that will hold you to the end. The race of life is unknown. Our time is uncertain. We only have today. It is all about a picture that must be established intentionally for decisions you will need to make for tomorrow.

Legacy is more than what you have and what you have done. It is about who you are and how you will finish. Leaving a rich legacy depends on finishing well and the odds unfortunately are against you!

I hope you will be inspired to make your personal growth a priority this next school year. Success is NOT an accident; therefore, make learning your joy. I trust the journey for you this next year will be amazing.

Promise #1 — I am most fulfilled when I am fully devoted and engaged in God’s purpose for my life.

Man was created with an inner longing to know God and to make Him known.

If God created me in HIS image and I am fearfully and wonderfully made, then I have the privilege and the responsibility to understand my personal strengths, passions, and giftedness in order to use all that I am for Him.

I am called to run the race that is set before me and when I understand how to best use my strengths, talents, and gifts, then I will have a huge sense of personal confidence and success. I will not be frustrated, but focused; I will not be overwhelmed, but excited that God would use me to share HIS story in my generation.

Psalm 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

Acts 20:24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me — the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace.

1 Cor. 9:24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

Romans 9:17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.”

Ephesians 4:1 I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called.

Isaiah 26:8 Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your truth my soul longs for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.

May the story of YOUR life reflect a story for HIS glory!

Have an AWESOME week!
