My choice to choose Jesus Christ as my saviour was influenced by unsavory christian characters, but alas I still believe it was the best choice of my life. Tis a long story that I will not bore you with just yet.
However I remember the time I was baptized and how I felt.
He goes on to explain that this is how it is at times when one comes face to face with God and begin to want him as saviour.
I feel it's true.
When I got baptized. I remember feeling so free. Like a bird. I wanted to sing and dance and it was such immense joy that I tingled almost. I was a poor girl with a very uncertain future and before I choose Christ, I made demands of him to do what was next for me to go on because I didn't know how it would happen. He usually did.
But that beautiful feeling of being in love with the Lord is one I cannot forget and often I wish to go back and feel it again.
It lasted for awhile and then faded. Much like a couple in love I'd think. That euphoric feeling fades, but not the love.
I got to feel that beautiful soaring thing that gives you wings.
That is what I desire again....
Until then I'll continue to thank God for his blessings and routing of my life. I'm still amazed that I choose him. I didn't do that all on my own. Surely he chose me for his own reason.
Now that I'm in the throes of a troubled heart again. I'm trying to keep myself calm, depending on him to get me through this and help me grow, even though I just want to act irrational and be done with it.
When was the last time your heart soared?
