We were joined by dear friends and family last night to celebrate the baptism of Micah Jay Nelson.What a special time together we had, in worship, in the word and in the presence of the Lord.
Micah: you have been claimed by Christ! You are a child of God.On September 17th you were surrounded by people who love and cherish you.Our prayer for you, our son, is that you would ,just like Micah 6:8 says,
know what the Lord requires of you…
“And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.”
we pray that you will grow into a mighty man of God!That you will know personally the God that washed you white as snow.
Your name means “Who is like God?”…. this means not that you are like God but
that you are to walk in AWE of YOUR GOD! KNOWING AND PROCLAIMING THAT THERE IS NO ONE LIKE HIM!
we praise the Lord for you Micah Jay Nelson! You are His!
Micah with his sponsors…. Aunt Donna and Uncle Philip
You are adored Micah….
Uncle Nathan and Aunt Joy lead us in a sweet and tender time of worship.Uncle Nathan gave a powerful word for Micah, words we will remember and cherish.
Micah is usually a very relaxed baby, but he is quite demanding when it comes to one thing…… FOOD! When he is hungry, he is hungry….. and he let us know! BOY DID HE LET US KNOW! Actually in his 7 months here, I HAVE NEVER heard him cry like that! Thank you Nathan and everyone else for enduring Micah’s mini-tantrum. Don’t kids have the best timing!?
But even with the screams…. It was such a blessed night. God is so faithful.
We praise Him for our heritage, our family, our blessings and most of all our salvation!
LORD:May our son grow to know you, love you and walk with you all the days of his life!
You are mighty God! You are MIGHTY!!!!!
And of course no event would be complete without a sugary ending…
This is the scripture passage pastor/uncle Nathan chose for Micah….
But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD,
I wait for God my Savior;
my God will hear me.
