Easter

The highlight of this RESURRECTION DAY was that I decided to get baptized!!!

I was baptized as a Catholic when I was 14. I definitely did not do it for the right reasons and I did it with out really knowing God. When I got married I thought it was very important for our future children to grow up in the the same church. The problem was I was a Catholic and my husband a Mormon. I just thought it would be easier for me to go to his church than him come to mine. At the time it felt like the right thing to do. I had the fear of the Lord but I did not know much about him or have that personal relationship with him. So I join the Mormon church...that only lasted 6 months. After that we did not go to church for awhile. During this time Raul join the Army and we got orders to Hawaii. I came lost when I moved here. All I knew was that I needed to find a church that taught the Bible and not all these other books. Three years ago Easter Day I attended North Shore Christian Fellowship. That is the day that I really started to know the Lord. I have learned so much and have become so close to my Lord and Savior but being baptized in the other churches felt like chains around my feet. It has been a burden on me where at times I felt unworthy for betraying the ONE and ONLY GOD. Baptism has been on my heart for awhile but my mind kept telling me "your going to do this again?" Finally this was my year, no more mind games and the chains around broken. Now I know who my God is and im proud to be on his team. My eyes where blinded but now I can see the truth. I have been cleansed from the past that was my burden and I feel great. Now i just pray that the Lord can use me to guide others to the truth.
