Growing up, I was told a lot about God and the life of Jesus Christ, but I didn’t take the time to study the Bible a whole lot. I have always desired a close relationship with God but let life make me too busy. Life’s everyday obstacles and struggles seemed overwhelming, and a lot of times, I would turn to alcohol.
This past years’ Good Friday and Easter services really gave me the desire to make God the center of my life. Yet, life presented another big obstacle. However, God put it in my heart to focus on Him and not to turn to alcohol this time. Matthew 11:28-30 stuck out to me through this time:
“Come to me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me, and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
The day I gave my life to God, I instantly felt that weight I was dragging along being lifted off my shoulders. I decided to become baptized today because Jesus Christ was perfect, and he showed us by example to do so.
