Psalm 37:25-26 New International Version (NIV)
25 I was young and now I am old,
yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken
or their children begging bread.
26 They are always generous and lend freely;
their children will be a blessing.
I was once young and now I am old.
I know there is another inheritance plan through Jesus. I have grown over the years to see the importance of a new day and living it to the fullest. I also know to plan for tomorrow. Without a doubt, i know that Jesus is real and believe big inside my heart. I remember when Brookley when she was about 4, yelled out this, "OMG THAT'S MY CHURCH". Those words still continue today and we smile about it. Brookley and Willow are my granddaughters who are used in kids ministry and loves to sing on the worship team. They are well in their souls with God and know the importance of serving him. They are also set up great with their mom and dad with an inheritance too.
When we hear the word inheritance it is often thought of our material things. What will someone leave you or what will you leave someone else. Since I grew up on the poor side of life, I've always wanted to leave my children somethings great. I do my best daily to give them time and share words of encouragement throughout life. Life sometimes hits us hard and sometimes we just walk in the blessings with a smile.
I heard this story of a person who received a phone call. A family member had died and left her over a million dollars. She really didn't know this person, but the person knew her. It came at the right time and such an answer to prayer financially. I believe that God hears the cry of our hearts and knows what we need. Each of our steps are so important and we might not realize it now. There is a down the road of life, we need to be wise in the now. Plan ahead, live in peace and praise God for all you do have in life. Not only financially but spiritual. Spiritually we can walk in peace and live with a smile of today.
You have a choice about your inheritance
I hope you are living in the freedom of God. Knowing that yesterdays are gone and today is so important. Sharing time is a the best gift a person can get. Giving your heart, soul and mind over to Jesus and allow your life to change for the better. Through seeking him, you will find him. Through living in peace, you will have rest. Through prayer, you change and that changes things around you. You would be surprised at how much your example means to someone else. You look into a mirror and see a person. People often look inside of you to find a kind person or giving person or someone who walks like Jesus. A true example of giving, sharing, love, and encouragement to live on purpose.
I remember telling someone to dream big. She responded by saying, "I don't have a dream". I was surprised but I listen to her closely. She was extremely happy in her now. I have always had a dream within my heart. I always wanted my children to have more than me. My husband felt the same way about wanting our kids to have more. We both have struggled with money over life and was taught wrong in younger years. We started off at 18 years old together and listen too much to people who we thought taught right. Later in life, we found out they were so wrong and only wanted our money. I believe that God knew the intend of our hearts and I can't believe that he won't keep us in older years.
So why am I writing this today? Good question and I'll answer that now. I want you to set yourself up in a great place financially and spiritually. We can miss the mark of God if we aren't careful. His plan is in Jeremiah 29:11 a plan, a promise and a future. That's your spiritually inheritance for sure and living one day in Heaven. Our financially experience is to talk to people who have walked this earth a little longer than you. See what they have in life and how did they get there? Listen to stories and then plan yourself in a smart way. We should be able to have a happy retirement one day. Knowing God is taking care of you and you have taken care of yourself too.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Don't forget to LIVE in the day and COUNT blessings. Pray that God puts people in your path to spur you on and help you. Then you can spur others on and help them. We need each other in life and we don't have to walk it alone unless we choose too. Purpose this a good day!
