April 18th, 2010 - I was re-baptised today! I was baptised at a much younger age when I believed and understood that Jesus was my Savior who died on the cross for my sins and I was ready to commit myself to Him for the rest of my life. I was young, but I believe I knew what I was doing...and I did not want to go to Hell.
My life has changed very much since then. After I became a mother, most recently after Bree and all the challenges we went through in her pregnancy and birth, I became very convicted that I needed to re-commit myself to the Lord and that was what He was asking me to do. It was so tough and humbling going forward as a grown woman and mother. But I did not walk forward alone, I was carried forward by Him as He gave me the courage to take that step. I seriously don't even remember the actual walk, just suddenly I was at the front of the church during invitation. For the first time in as long as I can remember, I feel so much lighter. Singing through the invitation this morning, I, for the first time did not feel this huge weight on my shoulders and the lump the size of a tennis ball in my throat =). I will always feel conviction and I will never feel good enough, but I know for sure now that I have been forgiven of my sins and washed clean with his blood. My Lord Jesus has saved me and I know that my testimony will hopefully help someone else go forward, if only one person!! It is a good day for me and I will never forget it!!
Shane, the kiddos, and some of our family were able to stand behind me as I was baptised this morning, the sweetest feeling in the whole world!!! Thank you Lord for this wonderful family, all of our friends, and most of all for saving me and making me new!!!
Some pictures Tara was able to get for me! Somehow Shane managed to stay out of all of them, but he was there =)!
Hope you had a great Sunday!!!
