This sweet sister has been walking with Jesus for awhile now and at a recent retreat she decided to step in obedience in being baptized. “Tomorrow, at church!” she said confidently. About half way through church sheets of rain began to fall and when it was over there was enough water in the streets to baptize her there! Because of the flooding, getting to the river was no longer an option and several hotels wouldn’t let us use their pools, so the roaring ocean it was! She was baptized between waves and it somehow felt very fitting to her story and the way that Jesus is constantly engulfing her with His strong love day after day!
(The lyrics from Amanda Cook’s “You Make Me Brave” couldn’t be more perfect for this photo montage but Facebook doesn’t allow songs we don’t own so you will have to read them over it instead. Then imagine Jesus singing them over YOU!)
“As Your love, in wave after wave
Crashes over me, crashes over me
For You are for us
You are not against us
Champion of Heaven
You made a way for all to enter in”
