I was Baptized tonight with over 40 others! The whole church was singing, "Sing Your Praise To The Lord!" a very upbeat song that I love, during my turn! That made it even more special for me!

The "HIGH" I felt was wonderful! I have wanted to do this as I finally got to know God 18 months ago. I think the figurative "washing away of the sins" will also help me in my healing process!

Dear God, Today, please help me to get to know you better and love you more! Amen!

To all of you, My Brothers, Sisters, Friends, EVERYONE reading this, may God Bless You and help you or your loved one on the road to healing, we ALL have a long way to go! We will get there!

Peace! Hope! Love!

Thanks for sharing your experience, we are probably here today because God wanted it that way.

May not have thought so at the time,but my faith intervened so many times throughout this, that I am sure God was there on every occasion I needed him and God did I, and so did we all whether we had faith or not, we survived.

God bless

Congratulations on being baptized, and welcome to the family in Christ. I believe you are right the symbolic washing away of the sins absolves you of everything, and knowing that can truly help with the healing process. It is great you have accepted the Lord God as your own personal God.

Congrats again!!!

Peace in Christ,

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible in not a declaration, it's a dare.
