I witnessed one of the happiest moments of my life on Sunday. Justin and I have talked about finding a church home for a long time. My anxiety held me back while he is just so laid back that it didn’t matter to him one way or the other. This was only our third week to attend church and the second time at this specific church. To make a long story short, I watched my husband head to the altar, drop down on his knee, and dedicate his life to Christ. He had no idea that I had prayed for that moment for a long, long time. He is the best person I know, but I just wanted to be 100% certain that he was going to Heaven with me one day. And now, I know. And it was such an amazing moment as my heart was about to beat out of my chest and tears of joy rolled down my face. I felt him begin to tremble beside me then I heard the first sniffle and I knew what was happening. He rarely shows emotion so I was certain what was happening. I locked my hand in his to let him know I fully supported him, then he turned to me and said “Do I go up there?” and I told him to do whatever he felt led to do. So, there he went. Afterwards, I told him that moment ranked right up there with bringing our children into this world. And in a way, it’s the same thing. I watched my husband be born again. I am so proud of him. It was so awesome to watch God work in him.
Thank you to everyone at Oak Grove Baptist for inviting us, for making us feel welcome, and for taking part in such an amazing event in our lives.
