i just got BAPTIZED!!!!

PARTY!!!

Yep its something I've been wanting to do for awhile now, and since i just joined this new church, they had a baptism celebration tonight and i just got baptized!!!

and AND i met some cool new gals my age tonight (also being baptized) and we're gonna all go to this singles group thingy next Sunday before the late service. SO i dont have to go alone and be al scared!!! oh I'm so excited I've been praying SOO hard for some good Christian friends my age....Things are starting to look up for me.

Just thought I'd share some good news.

and by the way...ITS GREAT TO BE BACK!!!! (I took a Lenten Interference leave and I really did get alot out of it )

Excellent News!! You have been obedient to the Lord and shown the world that you have new life - the life of Christ!

"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me" Galatians 2:19

"Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism unto death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life." Romans 6:4

"Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; all things are made new."

Whoo hoo... congrats!!!

I don't really believe in that baptism where they just sprinkle water on your head. Isn't baptism supposed to symbolize rebirth... thus the getting dunked underwater and coming back up new? Anyway, I'm thinking of getting baptized.. yayness. My youth pastor said there's a date in 2 weeks, whoo i'm kind of excited but confused as in whether i should do it..so soon.. =\

WOW!

You're the first person I've evr known of (personally, not just like, a atory) where an adult has gotten batized (granted, I'm from a very small, Italian Catholic town where everyone is baptized a few months after birth). Needless to say, your story is very encouraging and uplifting. Congrats!

Well, the important thin, of course, is the fact that you've been reborn, so the timing of baptism isn't all that important. However, Christ does tell us to do it, to show those who love us where our allegiance is now, and also, as you so correctly say, to symbolize rebirth. Heck, I'd say do it as soon as you can. I see no reason not to. Alll this coming from a man whom, for some unknown reason, didn't get baptized until 2 years after he'd been saved...

Congratulations and blessings to you Ali Rose!! That's such great news!

I had my own brother baptize me in Lake Michigan years ago in front of my whole family (who'd been praying for me for 20 years!).

May you continue to walk in His ways....

True, though I've been kind of confused lately. My faith in God has been really crappy these days.. like I just went on this easter camp where i saw in front of my eyes people falling to their knees and stuff in front of God.. (including me) but I still have that.. how could he be REAL.. how could the world have just started with nothing but God??? Argh. I'm really confusing myself...

Well, I understand those questions; I guess we've all had them. More importantly, God understands them. However, it's all about faith. If we could see it all in front of our eyes, it would be sight, not faith. Paul tells us we "walk by faith, not by sight". Jesus told Thomas "You have seen and believe. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe." When negative thoughts start to be generated in my mind, I say to myself "Okay, this is a feeling, an emotion, and I know that emotions and feelings are often lies, and not indicative of the truth. I choose to look past the feelings and stare into the face of truth that I know is Jesus Christ. Despite my emotions at this particular moment, I choose to believe in the truth". Try this, and i think you will be surprised at the peace that will flood your soul.
