Family Traditions, Generations and Legacy

 
On our recent trip to the mountains, there were 3 generations spending time together in a cozy cabin.  Mornings were spent with coffee and quiet time reading the Bible, individually.  As the days continued, we all ended up putting our Bibles in one place, on a table behind the couch.
 
One of my devotions that week shared Psalms 78:4
 
"We will not hide them from their children,
Telling to the generation to come the praises of the Lord,
And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done."
 
Growing up, my home was filled with love, but not much spiritual training.  We didn't talk about the  things of the Lord.  When I married a Christian who was from a Christian family, loving the Lord was lived out daily.  I quickly embraced the command to share in our daily life the greatness of God and continuing a new legacy, one of fearing and trusting God. 
 
My background has granted me an even greater opportunity for praise. God has knit together a story of redemption and hope.  God filled a gap of family dysfunction, made my life path new and showed me a greater way, the way of His love, hope, peace and joy.  He who has been forgiven much, loves much more and has a great story to share - the story of the greatness of our God. 
 
No matter where we come from, or where we are, God is able to bring new life and hope.  May we accept it and embrace Him and His greatness...and pass it along!
