Celebration and Commitment

Baptism

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders Let me walk upon the waters Wherever You would call me Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander And my faith will be made stronger In the presence of my Saviour

Last night I had the privilege of spending the evening at my niece's Baptism. Surrounded by youth and families that were celebrating the NEW LIFE seven young people now have in Christ was moving. Loud cheers when up for the step of obedience each of these sweet Lovers of Jesus took as they stepped into the baptismal waters.

Then...a move into beautiful worship. Hands raised. Hearts open. Raw. Among the singing there were tears and hallelujahs rang out. But most of all...there was vulnerability before the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Hearts were being moved and the presence of the Lord was thick in the room.

Intentional living

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders Let me walk upon the waters Wherever You would call me Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander And my faith will be made stronger In the presence of my Saviour

The bridge of a song...no a heart's cry.  I can't get it out of my head...actually it is in my heart. I want to walk upon the waters like Peter with complete trust in my Lord!  BUT...I want to stay there. I want my eyes to be so fixed upon the Lord that HE can take me "deeper than my feet could ever wander" on my own.  For in HIM alone to I find my strength...my very being.

Where will you let Him take you? I pray that our eyes will be so fixed on His face that we go deeper...to trust Him without borders. No fear. No hesitation. Just Faith.

Christmas Baptism

On Monday Nights, we have Bible Study in our home. We are truly blessed by the families that join us. Last week we gave testimony about when we had heard God in our lives. Everyone shared great testimony, even the youngest, my 6 year old daughter.

She has been asking to be baptised for about a year now and last week as she explained that her heart was thump thumping and she knew she needed to be baptised, everyone was touched. She is quite animated when she talks!

Yesterday, as we were preparing for Bible Study and straightening from the weekend, my husband told me that he was going to baptize her that evening. As we sat for lunch, he told Hallie. What a GREAT smile came over her face!

The rest of the day Hallie was on cloud nine! Dancing around and so joyful. She even sand "I'm going to be baptized, baptized!" Too cute.

After Bible Study, with friends and family gathered around, Hallie was baptised. Right before we started, I asked Hallie one more time WHY she was being baptized and with a huge smile on her face she replied...

"Because I love Jesus!"
