I did it!!!!! Today I took the plunge. Some of you may have seen that I chose to be baptized as an adult today. Before I get into the long drawn out version of why, I'll give you a short version of my story.
I grew up in church, but during my teenage years I kind of fell out of church and my faith for a little bit for various reasons. I really didn't ever doubt that there was a God, but I just didn't make it a priority. I always kind of just believed what I believed to myself.
I found my faith again through It Works, the amazing Christian-based company that I represent, and through much prayer and much healing through Christ this year, I really felt more connected in my spiritual life than I have in a long time. I believe that the baptism as a baby that I received wasn't necessarily my choice since I don't even remember it. So today, as a public declaration of my faith, I decided to be baptized to recommit my life to Jesus.
It was one of the most emotionally overwhelming and beautiful experiences of my life so far and I know this is a day I will never forget. Here's to the new me and my new life in Him.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT) This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
