CONFIRMATION DAY

confirmation-clipart-dT7z5EE8c

Today is a special day in the church year.  We celebrate the day when the disciples became filled with the Holy Spirit and began their task of taking God’s wonderful news to the world – Pentecost Sunday.  Today is also special, because our granddaughter is being confirmed.

Confirmation, in our church is the affirmation of one’s faith, which was first bestowed by the Holy Spirit at her baptism.  We are especially happy that this wonderful young lady has chosen to be instructed in God’s Word, so that she too can share this great news with her friends and those she comes in contact with.

The teen years are difficult, as we all know, but to be prepared with the armor of God is precisely what is needed in this day and age.  So as you go before the congregation today, Kaeli, may God grant that His Holy Spirit fills you with a fire that can’t be quenched.  May He give you the tools you need for life. May He be with you for all your days.

Dear, Lord, thank you for your Holy Spirit.  Thank you for pouring your living water on Kaeli at her baptism.  Thank you for bringing her to your altar to enjoy all the benefits of Your love.  Be with her today, as you enliven her again with your Spirit, and give her the power of your Holy Word as a guide for her life.  I also pray that your Spirit will reach others in these times of peril in our world.  Amen

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
