As usual I have a different perspective when it comes to timing. The Holy Spirit did not come to me when I believed. I did not believe until after I met the Holy Spirit. That made my baptism more special; like a wedding. The bottom line was that I was a Doubting Thomas and needed a personal invitation. The invitation came in 1982 but it was half hearted. It only covered the God part.
I then God baptized and nothing happened so I remained an agnostic when it came to Christ. Church was not enough. The Bible was not enough. But prayer and medication and communion brought results. In 2015 the Holy Spirit came back and told me the truth about Christ. That he suffered on the cross for our sins and was resurrected. I was ecstatic. I asked what took God so long to tell me the full truth and he said he wanted me to help struggling agnostics and I had to be one to understand their yearning and fear of change. Then I wrote my book, The Art of Changing.
I believe that we are on different paths that cross one another now and then. We are on our way to a closer union with God, a marriage to Christ, and guidance and comfort by the Holy Spirt.
Because of my love of the Blood of Christ, he has never given up on me and I am grateful. I have suffered and grown closer to Christ as a result. I have lost interest in all material things except the ashes of my late husband, and I have been given a mission to help 85 orphans Kenya for the rest of my life.
My name is Susannah.
God bless you all.
P.S. I wrote this a few years ago . . .
