Leaving a Legacy Ministries with Codi Gandee

Using the Word to Encourage Others




The past few days I have been on edge. I knew the day was getting closer for summer break to end. I’ve been thinking “they’re growing up too fast”. This morning we sent our girlies off to school. Still the same thought flooded my mind “they’re growing up and there is nothing I can do about it.” 
I asked the Lord to comfort me through his word. I opened my bible and the very first thing I read was “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.”
Because my girls are growing in age they are going to be given more opportunities to grow in grace and to draw closer to Jesus by growing in his knowledge. And this is what they were born for. This is why we all are here. 
There is peace in the presence of our Savior. He knew what had been racing through my mind. He knew what would speak peace to my soul. I praise him for that. 
Scripture taken from:

II Peter 3:18


Are You A Student?


II Timothy 2:15

After nine months of study my daughter is graduating from kindergarten. She is going to wear the miniature version of a cap and gown and proudly walk across the stage. My husband, our little girl, baby boy and I will sit in the audience beaming with pride, I’m sure.

Just like my aunt and her husband felt when Ian, my cousin, received his J.D. from a leading law school in the nation. He had put in years of hard work and was rewarded with top honors in his graduating class.

Most likely The Lord is sitting on His heavenly throne pleased with their accomplishments too.

Undoubtedly though He takes pleasure in His children when they become students of His teachings.

Paul writes Timothy that to become a workman that is approved before God a person needs to rightly discern the scriptures. He says that this is possible through study.

So, study the scriptures. Ask the Teacher to learn you in all areas of His doctrine. Grow in knowledge. Be a student of Jesus.

Because even more satisfying than holding a diploma of worldly value is knowing that your Heavenly Father approves of the ever learning student you are in Him.
