Passing Down Truth

Last year my Dad gave me probably one of the greatest gifts he could give to me. He gave me the book called "The Red Sea Rules" by Robert J. Morgan. Not only does this book contain awesome biblical principles for difficult times but Dad went through the book and underlined what sticks out to him. He wrote in the book how his relationship with the Lord has got Him through many difficult times. I know how much that book means to me and I began thinking how I was going to hand down the truth that my parents handed to me. Our tiny blessing from God is due on May 20th 2012 as of right now but I didn't want to wait until then to start doing all I could to train up our child in the way he or she should go. My biggest prayer and desire is to not only see our children come to saving faith in Jesus Christ but for them to have a desire to really experience God and have a real relationship with Him.

I recently picked up a kids devotional from our local Christian book store and have began underlining, highlighting and writing as much as I can about what the Lord has taught me in each of the topics in this devotional. Each day I receive so much Joy from reflecting on God's goodness and telling our child through this book of how great our God has been to me. I hope to get all of my family to write in this book as well of what God has done in their lives.

I don't know when the time will come to give this devotional to our child but until that time comes I have to do all I can to tell them of the wonderful God we serve! It's too good to wait until they are born, saved or older. I don't know what the future holds for our future family but I hope what I can share can encourage my children and grandchildren to be a part of that remnant that God will have in the end that has been faithful and devoted to Him.
