During Women’s History Month 2023, we looked at more than 30 women mentioned in the Bible. Most of them were ordinary women during their lifetimes, but in retrospect they left amazing legacies from which we can learn how to have richer, deeper relationships – with God and with others. What would your profile look like?
Take some time and talk to your Heavenly Father about that question. The Creator of the Universe, the One who handmade you, the God who never changes, knows all there is to know about you and loves you more than you can image. Jesus Christ came from heaven to rescue you and bring you home with Him. And, the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth and your Comforter, walks with you to give you everything you need to live a life pleasing to God. Lean into the faithfulness of your Heavenly Father, the love of Jesus Christ, and the hope provided by the Holy Spirit. Now, write your profile.

My story: Currently being written
God has worked in my life this way and these times . . . Your story may never be recorded for posterity, but a record is being made. (Malachi 3:16; Psalm 40:8; Psalm 56:9; Psalm 139:16; Luke 10:20B) Because your story is still being written, it can be edited and revised.
My legacy: I want others to learn these important lessons He taught me . . .
Whether or not you are intentional about leaving a legacy, you will leave one. What do you want to leave? Your Heavenly Father has a wonderful plan for life grander than you could ever hope or imagine. He wants to make it a reality with you. He loves questions from a loving, humble heart. Talk to Him daily and always listen to what He has to say.
My response to Him today: Talk to Him daily and always listen to what He has to say.
Ask Him: As Your beloved child, how well am I moving closer to You each day? When others see me, do they see You more than me? In all I say and do, am I encouraging others to move closer to You?
