Baptism January 28, 2018


I am Kim Johnson, and I have recently allowed Jesus to come and live in my heart.  I grew up in a family that attended Catholic Church every week. We were taught that there was a God and all, but were never encouraged to have a personal relationship with Him.  Over the past few years, I went through some very tough times with losing family members and I hit an all-time low.  I searched for answers and ways to get better, however I failed at every attempt.  I knew I needed a change and that is when a friend invited me to attend Church with her one Sunday. To say my head was spinning with the 180 degree difference from what I was used to is an understatement for sure.  After attending for a while, in my mind I knew that I needed to figure out what it meant to accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior, but my heart was still confused.  I tried my hardest to force my heart to accept it, but to no avail.  One Sunday, when listening to the sermon on Purgatory, I felt a huge gush of warmth fill my heart and I knew at that moment there was no more trying to force my heart.  I felt what my mind knew all the time: that Jesus is my Lord and Savior and I am nothing without Him. I do not want to live another day without Jesus living fully in my heart.
