This moment as my eyelids are so heavy, waiting for my turn to enter the bathroom, I am going to journal down the happenings of today do or die before I sleep, while my memory is still fresh.
I received the gift of salvation sometime close to 5 years back.
And on this date, 11th July 2012, I finally got water baptised.
To be extremely honest, I wasn’t really anticipating this time of the day when I was going to get water baptised to arrive, I just wanted to quickly get this “event” over, so I could go home and continue with my assignments.
How I occupied my time before water baptism at night was as such, I had school in the morning, went to town to shop for filming materials, back to school for an hour, and headed to axis for water baptism.
I was pretty tired from all that travelling and what made it worst was when we couldn’t find the exact lighting we needed for our scene, that made me so vexed.
But it was only until I sat down, literally, into the seats of the auditorium waiting for the ceremony to start did the HS speak and I was reminded again.
The reason why I chose to only be baptised now.
That this, is ultimately between me and God, this is a decision that only involves two of us. The other concerns I had previously were good, but not important.
The prayer time on stage was honestly, I don’t remember what happened exactly as my heart was beating so fast, the only sentence that stuck with me was along the lines of “would you follow Jesus until the end of time…”
I was very nervous, an unexplainable kind of nervousness, but it helped that the prayer leader is my leader and the leader baptising me was my ex leader. They really helped to ease my anxiety.
That moment being submerged was divine. I knew it.
I just really would like to thank my lg & various unit members whom came down to show their support and witnessed this ceremony. It meant so much that I was being baptised with the genuine blessings of my fellow brothers and sisters.
The fact that this was a midweek, everyone is tired, rushing assignments, did not deter them from not coming down and showing their support. Friends whom came down specially to support me, thankyou.(:
Thankyou Lg, thankyou Xiuwen, thankyou Jinlin, thankyou Joy, thankyou Brenda, and everyone eles.(:
Thankyou all for the cards and beautiful flowers. I really appreciate it.
I know its not the day or date that has any meaning after you get baptised, but its the days remaining, how do I choose to live my life. Now that I have publicly proclaimed my inner faith, will I strive to live more like Jesus daily? Will I live a victorious life as a new Kyla?
P.S: Its pronounced as “kee-la”
Most importantly, thankyou Lord.(:
