I Think I Learned Why God Put Me on This Earth

God probably put me on this earth because He needed someone who had a heart to give lots of money to lots of charities and someone who reads the Bible and is eager to learn about God a lot and someone with a mind set on Jesus surely can help God a lot. How I know is because once I decided that I wanted to be baptized, so I went up in the pool at my church with the pastor and he asked me if I knew what it meant to be baptized. I said I knew what it meant. It is a symbol. When you go under the water, it is like you are putting to death your old life and living a new one when you come up out of the water.
My family and I didn’t realize that my friend Libby, who was there to watch me, didn’t know Jesus. She went home afterwards and asked her parents about what I had done, and then she decided to believe too! I was sooo happy, and before I knew it she got baptized herself, and I was sooo excited for her! So that’s the story. God bless you! The End.
P.S. You never know what you are going to get used for by God!
