Commissioning My Daughter

I was touched by the events in church Sunday and am trying to identify all the emotions I felt.  We had a commissioning prayer for our daughter since she begins her mission in Utah this week.  She will be helping a church planter and his family whom our church supports.  She spent a week there last year to help with Vacation Bible School and has been interested in going back ever since.  She contacted them about going, planned the trip and raised the support all by herself.  I was happy and sad; inspired and excited; tearful and smiling.  But mostly I was proud that she is growing up and allowing God to lead her in this matter, yet totally humbled that God’s grace is touching her al all.  Blessings dear Amber as you travel, as you grow, as you stretch your wings and get stretched by God, as you learn more about the amazing gospel of Christ, and as you discover more of his plan for your life.  I’m a proud, yet humbled daddy!

To see some of my thoughts about Utah church planting, check out the two posts I wrote after a vision trip there with other pastors over two years ago.  One was called simply Utah and the other Pine Painted to Look Like Marble.
