In modern times, consider:
Corrie ten Boom, a single woman all her life, who was responsible for hiding many Jews away from the Nazi Holocaust.
What a bold, courageous woman who certainly left a legacy of great influence!
What about the life of Elisabeth Elliot whose missionary husband, Jim, was killed by the very people he sought to reach?
Elisabeth stayed on the mission field and continued to raise her daughter and reach out to that very tribe that killed her husband.
What a great example of biblical strength and character!
What about Amy Carmichael? She was a single woman and a missionary in India who started an orphanage for sexually trafficked girls and also boys.
She was called “Amma” (Mother).
She would go on to write many books.
Whatever God’s calling is on your life today, his desire is that you use your influence in the location where he has placed you to leave a LASTING LEGACY.
