Natalie Imbruglia, in Madrid

This song comes really close to how I felt ‘that day’ when I finally got down on my bruised and dirty knees and cried out for God, for Jesus.  I just wanted to be close to Him, aware of Him, and there are not enough right words to describe His answer!

When I was around 11 or 12 years old I walked the aisle at First Baptist, in my home town.  And I was baptized.  And I believe that this is where my intellectual relationship with Him began….

Y E A R S later, after much trial and error, I found myself sitting in a independent-spirit-filled-fundemental-baptist-church-and after several alter calls I ran to my preachers and asked them WHY? do I feel called to be saved AGAIN??  So I prayed.  And they advised me to stop listening with my head and listen with my heart.  So I did.  The next alter call, during which time a zillion butterflies were beating thru my chest….I FLEW to the alter and thanked God for His amazing grace and for His patience.  I was ‘double dunked’ that same day and soon thereafter left that church…..another writing….another day.

Peace,

~M

  One Response to “That Day”

  1. and if you would know God be not therefore a solver of riddles. Rather look about you and you shall see Him playing with your children. And look into space; you shall see Him walking in the cloud, outstretching His arms in the lightning and descending in rain. You shall see Him smiling in flowers, then rising and waving His hands in trees.” Kahlil Gibran
