My Daughter's Testimony for her Baptism

Katie is getting baptized tomorrow morning! She's also playing a song during the offering and singing! She's 11. And I'm proud.

Here's what she wrote out to say:

I was raised in a Christian home where God was the centre.

When I was about five, I asked Jesus into my heart one night when Mommy was praying with me.

I’ve been on missions trips where I’ve seen God working, and I have wanted to get baptized for a long time.

But I was afraid I didn’t have a testimony to share. Usually testimonies are “I was on drugs and God saved me.” So when I was 10 I told Mommy I should wait for two or three years until I had a testimony.

So Mommy asked me, “What do you plan on doing in those two years?”

So I’ve never taken drugs. I’ve never run away from home. And I don’t plan to.

But I do believe in Jesus and I’m glad He died for me and I want to live for Him. I want to proclaim this today, so that is why I’m getting baptized.

That is PRECIOUS! I can relate, as I too was raised in a Christian home and always felt my testimony was boring.

Now, at age 42, I am THANKFUL THANKFUL THANKFUL for my "boring" testimony and my family's godly heritage. I'm not perfect, but by the grace of God and the faithfulness of my family I managed to avoid some of the more devastating errors and sins of many in my generation.

Psalm 71:5-6
For you have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.
From birth I have relied on you;
you brought me forth from my mother's womb.
I will ever praise you.

Congratulations on your baptism,

Awww. Of course you are proud...and so thankful too, I bet.

I clicked on your "follow you on twitter" button, but it didn't take me anywhere. I'd love to follow you though if I can get to your twitter page.
