LEGACY

People keep talking about their legacy, Father.


They want to leave their mark;

To have something of themselves remain

When they are gone from this life.

Me? Not so much.

People will remember me

The way they choose to remember me;

Their memories will be cluttered

With my trivial, humorous and embarrassing moments,

As much as my deep and meaningful achievements.

My legacy will be what they make it,

Not what I deem it.

Help me to live this life, Father,

In such a way

That my life makes a difference

Here,

Now.

When they see me waiting, expecting your Word, those who fear you will take heart and be glad. I can see now, God, that your decisions are right; your testing has taught me what’s true and right. Oh, love me—and right now!—hold me tight! just the way you promised. Now comfort me so I can live, really live; your revelation is the tune I dance to. (Psalm 119: 74–77, MSG)
