Today is my spiritual birthday. I got baptized by my pastor, Tom Cox, three years ago on Easter day. I gave God my heart that day. There have been no regrets. I love God beyond all things; words can’t explain. At times it has not been an easy journey following Jesus, but I keep God’s promises close to my heart. “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it” (Proverbs 4:23). I have faced many challenges and still do.
I believe in God. Jesus is there for me when I need Him the most. He celebrates my joys with me and cries with me. God has changed my heart and life so much it’s almost impossible to believe. My feelings, emotions, and knowledge of God has grown so much and keeps growing. I never want to be still in God’s teachings. On some days I seek God. On other days God seeks me. He pulls me out of myself and holds on to me. His love for me and my love for him is reckless, crazy, confusing, passionate, wonderful, etc… I couldn’t ask for a better God. My personal relationship with Him astounds me.
Just to think it started with words of the Father,
Spoken by other followers
Stepping into a pool of healing waters
His grace surrounds me and astounds me
He is a good, good, Father
