Being an Ethiopian Eunuch

You’ve probably noticed I haven’t been writing as often these last few weeks (or maybe you haven’t, which is okay, too). That’s because I’ve been concentrating on being an Ethiopian Eunuch.

Bear with me. I sense you might want an explanation.

My favorite story in the Bible right now is Acts 8: 26-40. In the story, an Ethiopian eunuch who had just visited Jerusalem to worship. He is approached in the desert by Philip, who was directed to God to that place. There Philip tells the eunuch about Jesus’ life and sacrifice. As Philip is teaching, the eunuch recognizes truth and devotes his life to Christ, requesting to Philip baptize him.

My story closely follows that of the Ethiopian Eunuch. I was raised Catholic, always believed in God, but never embraced the truth. In January, I revisited faith. And it all of a sudden made sense to me. I’ve been surrendering to God’s will everyday since then. And I’ve been learning what it means to be a Daughter of God.

To solidify my intent to pursue God’s heart, I was baptized. Surrounded by my family and a community of people that I have come to think of as my family, I gave my life to Christ, just like the eunuch.
