Last night we dedicated Emma to the Lord. See the pictures here. It was a beautiful moment. However, I felt so discouraged and upset with myself afterwords because the words I wanted to say completely left my head, however, what was said was still pretty darn good, just not what I originally wanted.
The enemy tried to use this against me the entire night, it took a while for me to shake the lies from my head. Stuff like “You can’t talk in front of people”, “You fumble on the platform, and always will”… it really had me going, I was so distracted for the rest of the evening that I hardly heard the message, except a part about Moses… that my small group all laughed at… but only us. DING (inside joke).
Here’s what I wanted to say, and will say and pray:
As God the father dedicated His son to do his work, we dedicate Emma to be in His hands, wholly modlable. Because of his ultimate love may she see His handiwork throughout her life and live set apart for great things. Empowered by Jesus beyond measure and without limit – in His kingdom here on earth!
