“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”
The good news was share to me this January of 2018. I was overwhelmed and overjoyed and I couldn’t contain myself. I read the Bible ever since from the moment I wake up until night before I sleep. I was on fire! I do not know what to do and who to talk to after hearing the good news.
I went to see my best friend of 17 years. She shared the gospel to me over and over but for some reason it didn’t really hit me that time. The previous three years of my life though was a challenge. Those years were a challenge and in those three years I even considered taking my own life. I was so helpless and thought just ending it all might really really stop it all. I was in the middle of an ugly divorce and in a new but I would say at that time an ugly relationship too.
Everything was dark and ugly until I knew Jesus. Before I really didn’t think it will help and I did question why all of those awful things happened to me too but maybe as we go along in this blog of mine I could tell the stories to you guys. My life is an ugly clump of disappointments and sins but I got a second chance, a new life with Jesus by my side and with the help of the Holy Spirit I know now I can do everything.
“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow: though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.”
Writing makes my mind stop thinking all the time and I need that to function sometimes so I will blog and blog and blog until I am contented. Until I am freed from all these things I think and I wanna say. When I woke up today I decided to make this blog— a separate one to share my Christian journey.
Baptism is not a prerequisite for salvation but what it does is to declare that I am no longer of this world, I no longer belong with the enemy but I now belong to Christ. I am now forever His. My life, my body, my soul and everything I do is to glorify Him. Although I wont be able to really do it all the time as I know myself but I do try to always give thanks and glorify God.
Before I thought there is nothing about this baptism but I think I do certain things different now and I am more careful now in everything I do and say. My skills in blogging is not much but I will do better soon enough. I have many concerns and I have many stories to tell so I will be blogging everyday and may we all talk about things like this and do not be shy to share your stories too and you can always comment and I will try to always reply. We should remember to always pray and that we should remember that we are not alone.
