Do You Remember?

Do you remember the day you first felt Jesus in your life? Did your heart race?

Do you remember the feeling when you first knew He was real?

Do you remember the day you finally said, "Okay, my life is yours?"
Were there tears of joy?

Do you remember the day you said you wanted to belong to Him always? Did you feel as if heaven was close enough to reach out and touch it?

Do you remember the day you shared with others your decision to follow Jesus?

Do you remember the exact moment you were washed in the waters of baptism? Did you feel His love wash over you? Remember?

I remember as if it was yesterday. It was a day I'll never forget. It was actually after midnight during the summer. My husband and I were both baptized in a friend's swimming pool here in Corpus. The beginning of a new life, a new walk together with Jesus. Even in the middle of the night, friends and family shared in the event and it was amazing. I had watched these friends live out their faith in front of me for awhile. Jesus became real to me through them. (BTW, Who's watching you?)

My excitement and privilege to be a child of God is the same today as it was that day in the swimming pool. My passion for Him has grown and will burn within me until the day He comes again. My challenge for you today is to live out your passion for Christ daily. Let your faith in Christ be vibrant, outrageous, alive...live out loud!

Share your "moment" with me! What do you remember about the day you became His? I'd love to hear your story!

Blessings,
Kristen

Yes!! I remember that day so very well, My husband was staioned in Germany and I don't know why the Lord had to take me clear across the other side of the world lol for this to happen, but he did. I had a dreamt that the Lord came back and I saw everyone going up to heaven except me, it was then I remember getting up and crying saying Lord I don't want to be left behind when you come back for us oneday, so the next sunday I went to the altar and made my life right with the Lord, and so did my husband. this was in 1985. I have been serving him ever since. I enjoyed reading your as well kristen.

Lorie,
Isn't it funny how God works...taking you to Germany and you finding Him there? He just never ceases to amaze me. I love hearing stories of how people came to know Him. Thanks for sharing yours!
Love,

I love your salvation story!!! I was 14 at a small church revival. I can't remember any of the words I said or any of the words spoken to me. All I remember is I felt an overwhelming transformation going on inside of me. The next day at school, it felt as if I were seeing things through different eyes! My search for that "one thing" was complete!
