Becoming A Woman Of Legacy

Updated: 3 days ago

As we've concluded the month of April looking at faith and are now shifting gears to focus on womanhood, I was especially blessed by 2 Timothy 1:5 which links these 2 topics. We see Paul acknowledging that Timothy's faith was generational.

I remember your genuine faith, for you share the faith that first filled your grandmother Lois and your mother, Eunice. And I know that same faith continues strong in you. (NLT)

This shows me that women have a role in generational history. I'm sure many of us can trace back to who we are because of the values - both positive and negative- that the female figures in our lives passed down to us.

The day I felt the flutters of my unborn child, I knew I'd been elevated to the esteemed position of matriach and ancestor. Almost immediately I shifted gears and started thinking about who this child was and what kind of life I wanted to give him. I desperately wanted my child to live free of the patterns that I'd observed over the years that burdened my bloodline.


The responsibility of motherhood unveiled a new layer of purpose. The Lord in His great loving kindness and mercy began to talk to me about breaking generational cycles and how to initiate generational blessings and legacy.


As I reflect on the journey that has been raising my son, I want to set him up for success. I'm sowing seeds of prayer into his future. As I watch him explore the world around him, I'm trying to create opportunities for him to be creative and to express himself. But most importantly, I'm relying on the wisdom and help of the Holy Spirit to raise him. As I pray over him and sing with him, I'm training my son in the way that he should go so that when he's old, he won't depart from it. As he grows older, my prayer is that it will be said of him that he shares the wisdom and fear of the Lord in his mother, and is an intercessor like his grandma and great grandma.


I'd like to encourage each one of us to take inventory of the blessings and gifts that are in our bloodline- and for purposes of this blog, to focus on the beautiful characteristics that we've inherited from the women in our lives. What qualities in you can you trace back to them? Are you an excellent home maker or known for your generosity? Perhaps you have a great voice like your mother or are a prayer warrior like your grandma?


Dear woman, becoming a woman of legacy demands that we're mindful and intentional about our actions today. Never forget that these will have a profound effect on generations to come. It's our responsibility to prepare now. Generations we might never meet are counting on us to make it count for them.

A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children, but the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous (Proverbs 13:22 NKJV)

What will you be passing down to your generations?
