I came to know Jesus at a young age. I was fortunate enough to grow up with a Me-Maw who dedicated herself to teaching her grandchildren about God. Throughout High school I was involved in a Christian group called Younglife. At a Younglife camp I went to one summer I felt like I really began to understand what it meant to have a relationship with Christ. The worry and the fear fell off as I put my trust in him. Through the past few years I found myself running away from Him. I felt like I fell so far at times that I had to prove myself to Him that I had to please Him in order to feel his presence. Earlier last year God spoke to me in a moment I just felt broken. He was pleased with me. I realized I had this performance driven relationship going on with God when He’s been here the whole time no matter how far I stray.
I've been baptized once before when I was younger. I want to be re baptized today because Jesus was baptized and I want to live like Jesus. As I enter a new chapter in life I am preparing my heart for my mission trip come July. Today I am making a renewed commitment to the Lord.
