I grew up with the teachings of Christ, as my Lord and Savior. Throughout the years, I accepted and reaccepted Christ as my Lord and Savior but I have always lived my life on my own terms - knowing that I was choosing not to fully commit my life to the Lord, either by word or by path.
There hasn’t been one specific moment but a collection of moments when the Lord has been present in my life and answered my prayers. I’ve been slow to commit but always working my way closer to God, and spending a lifetime getting there. It is because of my strengthening relationship with Christ, that I find myself wanting to follow Him. I am surrounded by followers in Christ, and with their support and steadfast faith, I have found the courage to stand before others and be baptized.
