Sunday, July7, 2021, I went public for Jesus. Having felt the depths of despair and hopelessness, and having found His hand reaching down to me, I climbed the steps of the baptismal and put my feet in. A video played beforehand recounting the last almost year bringing me from darkness to light. On Sunday I put a death to my old, sinful life and instead was reborn in Christ. My book definitely illustrates the level of stress that I had allowed myself to fall victim to and control me. I did things my way for years with no better outcome. Today, I have Jesus. When something comes my way that I can’t handle, it goes straight up to Him to deal with. I’m not a preacher by any means. I’m not a perfect person by any means, but having a church gives me the resources to get through pretty much anything. If you haven’t found your way there, I would encourage you to do so. If it’s not your thing, don’t worry it wasn’t mine either. I just pray that you find your way there before you let yourself go too far. Self-neglect is painful and leads to some wicked darkness. Jesus Christ is the light of the world and the source of salvation.
