When I was a small child
looking up at a man
sprinkling my head with water so mild
with parents doing the best they can
I don’t remember
but I was told
it was december
and boy was it cold.
many years had past
many of those days struggling
trying to do things on my own, lost…
satan kept on tugging
until I looked up and heard the cross
Jesus said, the time has come
I offer my open heart and arms
and I’ll show you where I am from
I will give you the armor and arms
and give you life anew
It was then I knew
I was to commit myself to Jesus
under the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Upon emerging from the water
I knew this time it was for real
and my free will
changed my life forever.
That beautiful day in August 2014, in my dear friend’s pond, is a day I shall never forget. I encourage each and every individual to consider making this commitment of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. It has changed my life ten thousand fold. God is waiting. Are you ready?
