Motivational Monday + A very special day

 
 
For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.” -1 Corinthians 12:13

November 25, 2012 - I was baptized

For awhile now, I have had a strong tugging feeling inside to be baptized. However, I have just had a lot of anxiety about coming before the church and professing this. Last weekend I was with my husbands grandmother and she started talking about how she missed me at church that morning - that it was a great service and they performed a baptism. I knew that this was the perfect opportunity to profess my feelings with her. She hugged me and told me it is the most special and important thing I would ever do. I told her that I would love to go with her and Papaw to the evening service and speak with our pastor about being baptized. When we got to church that evening, we met privately before our church service with our pastor and I explained to him my feelings and wishes of joining the church.  We discussed it further and set up a time for the next weekend. I cannot tell you how overjoyed I am by taking this step in my life.
