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.

  1. Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? 2 You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet[a] you do not have because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. 4 Adulterers and[b] adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 5 Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously”?
    6 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “ God resists the proud,
    But gives grace to the humble.”[c]7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you
    2Timothy 2:22-26 Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 23 But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife. 24 And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, 25 in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, 26 and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.
    God has used these verses to push me down to the end of myself. He called me to resign myself and all my dreams, wishes and wants to give Him the affections of my heart- that He might subdue them. God's blessings make my obstacles joyful. In all things I cannot stop blessing God. His perfect will may be accomplished! Salvation makes my burdens light. Oh what a wondrous thing to be considered His child. Alone I did not know what to do nor how to be rid of my burden. All I could say was I have greatly sinned. My prayer was simple " Take away the iniquity in me." I could not have said a day ago how long I would have been in a sinful state. Now a new awakening cometh upon me of how much sin does remain in me. How merciful is God to have taken away my curse. His blood was the only way. It is as if I saw my burden roll into a great ocean and though I looked for it I could not find it.
