So I finally made the plunge and have decided its time to go to church here. Well I still had anxiety going alone. My beautiful step daughter for lack of a better term. Really I don’t like using the word “step” because she and her brother are much more than that to me and my boys. They are FAMILY. Life has its ups and downs. Anyone one reading this blog knows I’ve had my challenges. That things at home are less than perfect. But I believe that god or the universe or what ever it is you believe brought them into my life for a reason. I believe the same for me being in their lives.
So this whole church thing for me is very new. I’ve of course studied it. Listened to it. Lived for god. Hated god. Didn’t agree with the old school scriptures. But in bring my children to church since June I’ve turn our life around. I’ve felt happy. Not all the time. But I felt like I BELONGED. My boys have loved it.
So finally coming here to Trinity Baptist. Well all I can say is WOW. We came last night. I wanted to see if there was child care and get a feel.
We were greater with Love. A man his name was Todd( name tag). He found us a seat. Very great glowing personality. Well today with the 1000′s of people here he recognized us and greeted us and said ” great to see your back”( something like that). AGAIN. WOW!
So back to last night. The senior pastor spoke and showed a video of a young couple. A couple who both had challenging pasts. In and out of foster care. Drug abuse. And many challenges. Well they wanted their daughter to be Dedicated. To do so they needed to be married. Long story short. Trinity Baptist married them TODAY. SEE this couple didn’t have the finances, the family or whatever else yo get married. So this wonderful church not only married them. But they invited last nights service. This mornings service and then in front of the whole crowd not only married thus wonderful couple. But surprised everyone here.
So all I could think is this was a sign. This have me the guts to come back.
I have alot of challenges ahead of me. I have much to reconsider. But faith will prevail.
