Default I was Baptised yesterday!!!

I am just beside myself! I accepted Christ as my Savior about 9 months ago...I'm not really sure what took me so long...He kept tapping me on the shoulder This past fall I found a church that I love and am completely comfortable at. And yesterday after services my dearest friend (stamp4sanity on scs) who has really been there through my days (months) of seeking baptised me.

I know that there are many members here who can appreciate this act of glorifying Christ and accepting Him as Savior and Lord of my life.

Thank you for letting me share!

In Him,
Allison

Thanks so much for sharing with us -- it really helps those of us who've been at it for a while to renew our own enthusiasm!

Congratulations! May God richly bless you as you walk this new journey with Him by your side! I accepted Christ as my Savior 22 years ago this past January and I cannot imagine not having Jesus with me through all I've lived through. I've had good and bad, but Christ is my helper and comfort through it all.

Thank you everyone! I knew there would be many here who would understand this joyful time. I have quite a few very important people in my life (parents, brother to name a few) who just don't get it.

Blessings,
Allison

Don't be discouraged, sweetie! We're here for ya!

I don't know if you've heard of a Christian rock band called the Newsboys, but my favorite song of theirs is called "Shine" and the chorus goes like this:

Shine, make 'em wonder what you've got
Make 'em wish that they were not
On the outside looking bored
Shine, let it shine before all men
Let 'em see good works and then
Let 'em glorify the Lord


Just keep shining your light, sister! No one can be forced or convinced to "get it" -- they have to come around for themselves like you did! When your family sees the wonderful changes in you, they may get curious!

I have heard of the Newsboys...I am on a strictly Christian music plan when in the car, I need reminders there most of all, I tend to be a little angry when I drive ::embarassed:: So I listen to XM Channel 32. I really like Switchfoot too.

Thanks for your words of encouragement regarding my family, you are so right. This was a long time coming for me...raised Catholic and then totally rebelled, now after about 6 years of subtle and not so subtle taps on my shoulder I have finally "found" what was missing...even though He was always there.

Switchfoot rocks! I remember when one of their hit songs started playing for that montage at the end of the 4400 season finale last summer. My sister and I were so tickled!

I basically only listen to Christian music as well, and have various stations programmed into the radio in my car -- it really is hard to start raging on the road when you're listening to "Lord I Lift Your Name on High" isn't it?

My favorite thing about the listener-supported Christian stations is that not only do I not have to change the station when some vulgar song comes on, but there are no annoying commercials!

I was just baptized on Sunday too. It was a great feeling. Good for you! It is a great step to take. I feel really good about my life now, as you do too, probably.
