The Blessing

You were baptized yesterday. It was such a wonderful morning and we had family and friends there supporting us which made it even more wonderful. Pastor Reeder has asked the parents of the child being baptized to write a blessing and then the father's speak that blessing to the child and to the congregation. Here is the blessing daddy and I wrote for you:

Isaiah 64:8 says, "But now, O Lord, You are our Father, we are the clay, and You our potter, and all of us are the work of your hand."

Jackson, you are the precious work of our Father's hand. Our prayer is that you will come to know your heavenly Father as your Savior and your Potter. We pray that you will be molded into a man of God, a man who seeks after God. We trust that the Lord has a perfect plan for you and we pray that you would allow Him to shape you: your faith, your walk, and your life as he sees best, so that you may have an impact on this world for Him. The Lord declares, "Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand..."
