I have been thinking...

[exciting, I know] about stories. I have been thinking about the preponderance of sobering, warning stories... the kind that people write about in books to show you the importance of not doing certain things. I have also been thinking about how few victorious, wondrous stories there are... and also thinking of my life, and the stories I am "writing".

I don't know about you, but if people ever write about my life, I would much rather be used as an example of how wonderful life can be when you follow God's principles, and not one of those stories that scare you so bad you start promising to not ever do that.

I have been thinking about what stories I will tell my children... will they be ones I am ashamed of? Or will they be stories that they can laugh over and rejoice in having a godly example to follow?

What about future generations? What will they say of me, and my life?

Oh, that I would live in such a way as to leave a godly legacy! God, give me your strength, wisdom and love!


  1. Very insightful and ... thoughtful post. Thank you for that. God is always looking down, and He is reading the story of our lives. We are living/writing for the Audience of One, and no one else.

  2. Haha, thank you. :)

    Yes, that is true. Now we just need to live like it is...

  3. Hi Carissa,

    Really good post! You are starting out well and I am sure will have lots of great Godly stories for your children.

    With joy and peace in Christ,

  4. Hi Mrs. Mama Lauser,

    Thank you! I hope so... I know I already have some warning ones for them too. :P I am most definitely imperfect... the thing about interacting online is you can seem much more amazing than you really are. haha. But, by God's grace, I am learning... :)

    God bless,
