2 Timothy 1:5 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

2 Timothy 1:5

I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also. 


Last night I was reading in my devotional, and part of it was about when Paul talks about how the Holy Spirit first lived In Timothy’s grandma and then his mom and how he was sure it was also in Timothy! It got me thinking about me and my son and the legacy I’m leaving to him.


I haven’t been a very good parent at all. I thought paychecks and presents were what it meant to be a parent, neglecting all the things that truly matter. But God!!!!! Since I have been walking closer with the Lord, He is restoring relationships that I never thought I would have. Today, my son is going to church with us, and I couldn’t be happier!


See, we all are going to leave something to the next generation, but it’s up to us to decide what that’s going to be. Do we want to leave them with heartache and sadness, or hope and love?? I can never make up the 14 years of my son’s life that I have missed or heal the hurt that it caused, but I know the One who can!!


It only takes one person to decide to change, and that one decision can influence generations to come!! My mom started it, then passed it to me, and I hope to pass it on to any and everyone I meet!!! There is no better time than today to choose to break your negative cycle and start a positive one!! Chose Jesus and let Him show you all He can do!!!!


I love you all, God bless, and glory to God!!!!!
