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.
1 Samuel 1:27-28
For years Hannah prayed for a child, and she was filled with joy when God answered her prayers and gave her Samuel. Her gratitude and commitment to God, captured in these verses, is so beautiful.
We’re also incredibly grateful that God has blessed us with a baby! It has been a desire on our hearts for a long time. There were lots of complications during the pregnancy, and it’s so incredible to finally hold our new baby! Like Hannah, we have the desire and obligation to now dedicate Margaret’s life to the Lord and raise her in a way that glorifies Him.
On Sunday we presented her to our church and prayed and dedicated her to the Lord. He’s so incredibly good to us! It was great to have my mom with us for this special day of celebration and dedication.
Thank you Lord!
We’d really appreciate your prayers for as well: that we would glorify God in the way we raise Margaret, and that she would love and follow Him.
