Feeling tired.............

“If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.”- Romans 14:8

Hear, hear.

Sometimes we get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives that we forget that God is in control of it all.

We are but dust in the wind unless we allow God to work through us so we can leave a legacy for those who follow behind us.

But- what is a Legacy? Is it the children we have begat? Is it something we have created with our hands?

Our Master- the heavenly father, wants us to perfect ourselves- to temper ourselves as silver and gold. Not specifically to create a Legacy. Some of us, if we are blessed, will create a Legacy- but, it is icing on the cake.

Daily, as his children, we should be chipping off the rough edges of the Ashler, measuring it to make sure its square, and dropping the plum-bob to make sure it is level. Therefore, when the Heavenly Father, is ready to call us forth, we shall be perfected and able to serve him better in the Celestial world that awaits each of us. Humanity, the human condition that is, is just the tool used to form us.

Legacies??? Hmm.. I come from a long line of Legacies... for me, I would rather be remembered for humility and perseverence, than a Legacy. Having to live up to that Legacy has been the hardest thing in my life.

If by chance, it happens.. that would be wonderful. I am, however, not seeking it.
