I was baptised yesterday, January 29,2017! This has been something that I’ve wanted to do for some time now. I was supposed to get baptised two times prior to yesterday. About 5 years ago, I signed up at my church to get baptised along with my mother. In the eleventh hour I changed my mind and didn’t go.
I was struggling with feeling unworthy of getting baptised. I didn’t feel like I was “good enough” to get baptised. A second time came around and I flaked again. Anxiety also played a huge part in my decision. I have allowed anxiety to control many decisions in my life.
2016 was a not good year for me! During those trials I found myself clinging to God like I never have before. I found myself getting into the word and spending honest quality time with God. It was during that time that I discovered that God’s love could never be bought. There was nothing I could do to earn his love, he simply gives it because he loves us that much. Though we are not worthy, he loves us. Though we make mistakes, he loves us.
I have learned over the last year how to be obedient to God’s word and how to receive his love. It was then that I realized that I am deserving of his love because I am his child. When I accepted Christ as my Lord and Saviour, I became God’s daughter.
There was no amount of anxiety that I was going to allow to get between me and my Saviour. Yesterday was truly amazing and I am glad I did it. Coming out of the water, i was overwhelmed with emotion and filled with such joy.
If there is anyone thinking of getting baptised, it’s the best thing you could ever do. God loves you! It is the best way for you to show your love for him.
