New Years Eve Baptism

Praise God. I haven't updated this blog in a good amount of time. Please forgive me. God is Love. I've been battling God's calling for myself and it has turned me away from sharing a lot of things with you. I am past that now and I am a new person.

2010 was a great struggle for me. I had so many lows that I forgot what it felt like to have highs. Yet, the Lord was always with me. Convicting me, sturring up my insides and pushing me towards the right direction. I finally started to listen, consequently the people around me werent ready for the changes God was asking me to make. There was a war waging inside of me, please them or please Him. God (Him) has provided for me my entire life. He opened my eyes to so many new things and although that same definition could be describing my parents, God has control of all things.

So as I started going to church again, Trinity Baptist Church, I began to listen more. I started to read my Bible more. And to make it all better, I began to have more faith. Faith in myself but most importantly more faith in the Lord himself. I had to learn a few things, fall a few times, get kicked around over and over again in order to see my own worth. PLEASE DONT DO THIS. I generally learn the hard way. But it came to a point where I was sick of having to be dragged in the mud before learning my lesson.

Jesus and all is Glory stood in my face until I began to look back at him with all the vision I was capable of using. Once I asked for obedience, he gave it to me. Once I learned what favor was and how to ask for it, it was in the palm of my hand. The moment I learned the true meaning of Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me."

So God wanted me to consider being baptized again. Originally I was baptized into the Mormon faith and later I learned that's not where the Lord wanted me. Revelations 22:18 tells us not to add onto Gods words.
