Annie's Story - Baptism
Best day ever!
I committed my life to Christ.
I’d love to tell you why.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve chased affirmation. I looked for it in my grades, in my relationships, in my work, in my social media. I measured my worth by pleasing people. But I had it all wrong.
My worth isn’t in a job well done. It’s not in the number of likes. It’s not in a fleeting compliment.
My worth is in Jesus.
And I don’t need to chase anything. Chasing these other things will only send Jesus chasing after me. This worth is here. This worth is now. And there’s nothing I can do, good or bad, to be loved any more or any less by my Savior. Because I’m not loved for what I do, I’m loved for who I am.
I am a child of God. A daughter of the King.
Created with a purpose & saved by grace.
A little over a year ago, I thought my life was falling apart. But as I let go of one thing, I didn’t know I was opening my hands for God to give me something better.
The culture of Vibrant, the “no perfect people allowed”, the “you belong here”, the “we love you for you, flaws & all” kind of community has completely changed my world. And now that I’ve finally put down roots, I feel like I’ve grown more in the past year than the previous 25 years combined.
So here I am. I’m all in.
Here is where I lay it down
You are all I’m chasing now
This is my surrender
