Recently I was baptized. It was a really powerful and joyful moment for me and those around me. My journey following Jesus began two years ago, and I’m beyond glad to see myself reborn and transformed. My life without Jesus was dark and meaningless, but Jesus has brought joy, purpose, light, and passion to my life. I am truly grateful for the way the Lord has worked in my life and for all the people He surrounded me with to be there for me and help me along the way. I have no idea what is in store for the future, but I trust in what Jesus has in store for me. I’d like to give a huge thanks to Nick Paraskevas, @colinsafford, @theorchardefc, @ah_stumin_hs, in particular for being guiding lights to the Gospel and to Jesus. Accepting Jesus into my heart is the best thing that ever happened to me, and I am truly joyful to have publically rejoiced in his grace and love.
