March went by so quickly and it was definitely filled with Life, Peace and Goodness.
Learning to live life boldly is one of my goals for the year. I often find myself backing out of things because of anxiety. This month I celebrated that life can be amazing. I celebrated my 33rd birthday at the beginning of the month. It feels so good to sit back and reflect on how far I have come since I was a sick infant. I know that I am lucky to live a full life without many medical conditions. I know that many children born prematurely need extra help often beyond what I am getting.
In addition to that I went to Maryland on a two-week vacation to visit a friend. I got over my fear of flying and I enjoyed the four flights that I went on. Everyone at the airports were kind and helpful. I enjoyed spending time with my friend. We cooked for each other, went on long walks, went shopping, enjoyed bible study, and visited his family and friends.
During most of the month I had peace. I took a step of faith when I started saving for my trip. I was blessed during the trip and I did not have to worry about financial struggles. When I first started my trip as I was boarding the plane, I felt the Holy Spirit remind me of the verse, “So do not fear; for I am with you; do not be dismayed; for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 4:1
Grandpa took care of my dog while I was gone. Duke was a good boy while I was gone. Funny thing was, when I returned home, he walked up to me, wagged his tail, sniffed me, and walked away… It was like he was more worried about getting a French Fry instead of greeting me. I also did not have much mail. I was worried about getting a lot of mail while I was gone.
I have been seeing God’s blessings during the whole month of March. My God is amazing. I have been praying about getting baptized since I received Christ as a teenager. Once, during one of my bible studies, I asked my friend Matt if he would baptize me. He agreed. One year later, on March 15,2021 at Grace Baptist Church I stood publicly for Christ. My baptism was everything I wanted.
