The water of baptism makes us NEW.
The water of baptism SAVES us.
The water of baptism gives us life.
The water of baptism forgives our sins. Help me cling to YOUR hope, YOUR promises.
I can feel helpless in the waking hours... overwhelmed by my sins, the future and what, I'm convinced, will happen. Please pull my chin to you and your hope. Your plans for me are good. You are always by my side. You are my hope, shine on me Oh Lord! Shine on me.
From October second's She Reads Truth daily devotion:
The tsunami of judgment that reared up and threatened to obliterate us splashes harmlessly back into the ocean because of Christ Jesus.
Thank you, Lord. Thank you.
