Aspire To Be All That God Created You To Be

Grandmother's Blessings

 MEMORIES.....LEGACY...LAUGHTER AND LOVE

 

“May the Lord make you increase, both you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth”. Psalm 115:14-15
 
Something wondrous and miraculous happened when I became a grandmother. I felt like I had grown a new heart just to hold all the love for my first grandchild.   I began to look at life in a fresh and different way.   God gave me a new love and passion as my grandson captured my heart and life.   Most of all I began to praise, worship and thank God more, because of His infinite tiny love gift all wrapped up in this precious baby bundle.   As he grew, I loved looking at the world, fresh and new, through his eyes.
 
 “When they see among them their children (and their children’s children, their grandchildren.... my words...) the work of My hands, they will keep My Name holy. Those who are wayward in spirit will gain understanding.” Isaiah 29:23-24
 
My blessing and prayer for my beloved Grandson is:
 
Dear Lord,
 
May this child forever know and understand fully Your unconditional love, as his parents and I lavish our love on him.   May he forever walk in the sunshine of Your love. And may his life always be filled with joy, wonder and laughter... Let him know Lord that with You he is more than a conqueror, and can accomplish anything. Place people around him to encourage and give him affirmation, helping him to believe in himself. Let him shine with Your light and always reflect Your love to others. Touch him Lord Jesus. Bless him. Lord hold his hand always, as he grows to manhood. Guide his steps. Let him know that he is never alone. That you are always with him to give him greater stability and security. Protect him Lord. I know that You will give your angels charge over him and bear Him up in your hands as you tell us in Psalm 91. You will protect and guide him in Your ways.   “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children, (and grandchildren) are walking in Your truth.” 3 John 4. May he always seek your steadfast presence.   May I help to pass on Your eternal flame to my beloved Grandson, and the legacy of my love, covering him with the full armor of my prayers. May I be able to help encourage him to know that He has a rich and divine inheritance in You, and a birthright of righteousness and faith because of Who You are and who You have created him to be.   In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
 
You may pray this for your grandchildren.   There is such great power in praying blessings! I Peter 2:9  tells us that we and our children and our grandchildren are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation.  We are called out of darkness into light. No weapon formed against us shall prosper.  As servants of God, this is our heritage that we pass on to the next generation. In Christ we are anointed and we are joint heirs with Jesus.   We are more than conquerors through Christ, who strengthens us. God is our refuge and fortress. We want to be doers of God’s Word and a channel of blessing.  Pray that you will always be a vessel of love, mercy and compassion.  Pray that your children and grandchildren will rise up and call you most blessed.  Pray that you will be sensitive to God’s Holy Spirit and His leading.  Pray that you will always speak blessings into your grandchildren.  And that God will always receive all honor and praise.
