Yesterday our only granddaughter was confirmed in her baptismal faith.  This was an especially wonderful day for us as her grandparents.  In this same church, shortly after her birth, she was baptized.  In this past year, she was instructed in the truths of God’s Word and commandments, and yesterday announced her allegiance and faith to Him.

What a blessing to stand next to her at God’s table and share in the gift of the Lord’s Supper.  At this time in her life, when she is about to enter high school and a whole new set of challenges, we are confident that she will be equipped with the armor of God.

As we witnessed her standing before the congregation, with one other young lady, our prayers for her were answered.  Her faith in her Savior will give her the strength to witness for Jesus, to share her love for Him and to live according to the plan He has laid out for her.

The gift of the Lord’s Supper will solidify that faith.  She’s already proving to be a servant for God’s Kingdom.  Our prayer is that she uses this wonderful knowledge to continue to build it.

Dear, Jesus, thank you for your gift of your Holy Spirit.  You filled Kaeli’s heart with it at her baptism and the seed of your love was planted.  Now she has affirmed that faith through her confirmation.  Continue to grow that faith within her and help her to know that you are always with her throughout her life.  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.
