"Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." ~John 14:6
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, so that we would walk in them." ~Ephesians 2:10
On the 20th day of August, 2020, I was asked to share why I was there, standing on the shore of Lake Huron, about to walk into the clear, calm water to be baptized. I certainly had reasons.
In the previous post, I shared a bit of my story about how much I searched my entire life for answers and healing. How I was raised in a secular environment with minimal connection to extended family, and longed for connection to something greater, rooted in a sense of ancestral identity. I also share my burning need to know God directly, and to repent, and how I'd been disillusioned by the 'New Age' teachings I had long followed in absence of having a better understanding about Christianity and what is taught in the Bible.
I also shared pictures from our epic cross-county relocation, and how much of what we have desired has now come to pass, as we move closer to our bigger dreams to own a piece of land. It's amazing how life changes when you seek first the kingdom of God!
