Well I guess it is the right word! I went to church last night and people kept congratulating me! To me it was very strange and for once I was not comfortable with the attention coming my way. I tried hard to remember what people did at my parents' church when someone became and Christian and I couldn't think of any adults 'getting saved'. Not that they don't, I'm sure people must... but I can't think of any.

I'm starting to wonder about baptism.. admittedly its partly for the selfish reason that I want to do special numbers in church and have to be a member to do this! LOL, so I'm just praying that God will show me when and the real reasons to get baptised. Not that I don't already know the 'reasons' but I want to seek the answers for myself and read them in my bible and really know that this is what God wants before I 'jump in' hehe ... get it? Jump in? LOL I'm silly!

Last night at church our pastor preached about some of God's promises. One of these that really made me think was of his promise to provide our needs. I remember thinking how I don't really trust God to provide my needs. I'm always worrying about the future and its comforting and hard all at once to stop worrying about it and just trust God. I think trusting God is going to be one of my biggest struggles.
