Day 30~ My Hopes For the Future

Isn't this pretty much like yesterday's topic? Oh well.

My hope for the future is simple: to raise a godly family. All my other mini goals or hopes I might have can be encompassed in that one goal. I want to close my eyes for the last time knowing that I gave God and my family my all.

I want my husband to feel blessed by my having been in his life for however many years we're given together. That sounds like I want him to think I'm awesome, but its more than that. I want my life to show him the love of Jesus in all I do. I don't do a good job of it now, but I hope to improve in the future. I want him to feel that his life is better for having shared it with me.

I want my children (whether I have one or five) to grow into godly men and women as a result of spending their formative years with me. Whatever they choose to do with their lives, I pray they'll do it as if they're doing it for Christ, because ultimately, they are. I pray they will meet and marry godly spouses and raise godly children, and the cycle will continue.

Basically, I want to leave a godly legacy. If that's the "only" thing I ever accomplish in my life, I will still be blessed beyond what I deserve. God was merciful enough to send His only Son to Earth for me, the least I can do is devote my years here to ensuring, as best I can, that my family knows Him.

This post is beautiful, Krystal. That you can maintain this level of faith with everything else amazes me.
