The Commissioning

My Dear Sister,
The Maker of Heaven and Earth
Has His hand on you.
Don't trade what He has for you
For the comforts of this world.
Let the love of Christ compel you
And infuse you with courage.
God, even God, who created the heavens
Is the One who comforts you.
Whatever you do,
Don't refuse it!
His grace will guard you from bitterness
And Christ will turn your pain
Into Holy Passion.
Pour your life lavishly into others.
Humble yourself and share your hardships
That others may also share your comfort.
Live till you die!
Then live like there's no tomorrow!
For the King enthroned in Heaven
Is worthy of your all.
Now, go, Girl!
For the Father of Mercies
And the God of all comfort
Goes with you.
Bless be God
And bless be you!

This was the commissioning that Beth Moore did at the end of preconference on Friday. We had to repeat it to the person beside us. It was so powerful. Hope it speaks to you today!

That's so awesome... thank you!
I'm glad you got to come with us to the conference. Think we can actually wait 13 months 'till the next one?!? :)
(btw- I discovered that Anita Renfroe does sell the new stuff on dvd, so I think we need to get our hands on some of those and have a girls 'movie night' at Jodi's one night to help us wait it out!) :)
