I'm so excited to share that our sweet baby boy is going to be dedicated next Sunday. Jason's parents are traveling to be here for it, and it's going to be a very special time. One of the things we need to do to get ready is to choose a Scripture verse for Michael. Michael is such a precious gift, and I hardly know how to express all that I feel about him and about God for sending him into our lives. Here are a few we are considering:
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
"As surely as you live, my lord, I am the woman who stood here beside you praying to the LORD. I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD." And he worshiped the LORD there. 1 Samuel 1:26-28 (NIV) *I'm thinking of just using the part in bold, as Jason will be the one to say the verse*
Psalm 127:3-5 Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
I need feedback! I can't decide which one to choose and maybe there's another verse out there I should consider that I haven't thought of. Suggestions and thoughts are welcome!
