Hymns & Stories : Just As I Am

Do you remember the song that was played on the day of your baptism? I remember the song, but I also remember what happened on the day of my baptism.

I’m someone who is afraid of water, so the fact that I was going to be immersed in water was quite scary but I told myself to hold my breath. I did not know how to swim back then, so holding underwater was alien to me. Right after I came out of the water, I started choking because I inhaled too early. I was probably the only one who choked after baptism. So, listening to Just As I Am, reminds me of that unforgettable day.

Bible Verse

16 What are you waiting for? Get up and be baptized. Have your sins washed away by calling on the name of the Lord.’

Acts 22:16 NLT
