100 (or so) people publicly declaring that they'll follow Jesus.
That's what I got to witness today. Today I saw my cousin, young kids, whole families, engaged couples, and adults choose to tell everyone that they're following Jesus now. Today I saw people who have been endlessly prayed for, loved on, and spoken truth to follow Jesus' example in baptism.
Baptism weekends are always emotional for me.
I love them so much.
Watching people declare that they're following Jesus does something to my heart strings. It moves me in ways that I don't have words for. And normally, as a writer, I have nothing but words.
But it does more than just move me. It gives me hope.
Hope that the people I am praying daily for to know Jesus will one day be up there being baptized.
Hope that the people I am loving on with Jesus' love will one day be up there declaring their love for Jesus.
Hope that the people I have spoken God's truth to will one day be up there speaking the truth of what God has done in their lives.
I may not have words to explain what is happening in my heart right now, but I have hope. I have Jesus.
