Today was a very exciting and spiritually uplifting day because my older sister was baptized.
She had a little speech about herself and her journey prepared and, one of the pastors read it while she was baptized:
“I went off the Lord’s path for awhile because of my anger about my chronic illness and all the pain and suffering that ensued. I was so hurt and had the misconception that God did not love me, for how could he do this to me. I believed in his promise that ” He would never give me more than I can handle ” which is in 1 Corinthians 10:13. I have since then realized that God has allowed suffering and pain in my life but, Jesus has been with me every step of the way giving me courage and strength. The Lord worked on my heart and softened it. I realized that I am a daughter of the King and that God’s promises are true. He has never ” left me nor forsaken me ” (Colossians) and has provided for me every step of the way. I was too blinded by satan and my own desires to control everything and heal myself to see, that God had a plan and His plan was far better than my own. I now am ” taking up my cross daily to follow Him (Jesus) ” (Luke 9:23) and living in the light. ”
Needless to say, I am so thankful the Lord has been working in my sister’s heart. God is so faithful. Praising Him today!
