So here it goes
When Christ called me to be his and only his, I thought My physical world would change. As if all the pain and abuse I suffered would magically disappear after being baptized behind that black curtain, and dirty water… being baptized by the man who abused my family for so long, i hoped we would have a rekindled relationship after the submersion. Everything was going to be better, it had to.
But here’s the truth.
My physical experiences on this earth have only gotten more difficult.
The abuse didn’t stop.
My relationship with my father didn’t magically improve.
It wasn’t until I turned 17 that it clicked…
My physical and earthly troubles won’t end.
But the Spiritual battle has been won.
It wasn’t the physical and earthly abuse that had a grip on me before my baptism.. It was the devil having a grip on My family and myself.
When I got baptized, Jesus stepped into my place and said “you’ll be fine… I am made perfect in your weaknesses” “I will protect you” “I will take the blow” “I’ll take the lashes for you lashes and nails for your nails” …
God stepped into my shoes and SAVED MY SOUL.
What I went through after that didn’t matter… If my heart was in tune with Jesus, no earthly thing could touch my soul.
My father no longer hurts our family.. Actually he is in love with Christ and loves my mom more than ever before.

I look forward to the day that my entire family is rejoicing in heaven for coming to Christ and rejoicing in the win over evil!
God is good!
