Wayside Baptist Church
I’ve been attending Wayside Baptist Church off and on for about four years. I always enjoyed the service and felt at home with friendly people and great teaching.
Now that I’m Retired I was ready to make a more permanent connection so during Altar Call I went up to join Wayside. More than just joining. I am now part of the Wayside Baptist Church family. As a single person with only my brother Stephen whom I only see a few times a year I need to be part of support system.
By joining Wayside Baptist Church and attending Sunday services on a regular basis and Bible Study this will help me in my battle against depression, anxiety and panic attacks.
I made up my mind that I could either sit at home and wallow in sadness, depression and negative thoughts or I could get up off my butt Sunday morning, eat breakfast, take my shower and walk the few blocks to the church.
Better to be in the House of the Lord than to be home overthinking and projecting into the future. I was brought up and raised in the Baptist Church so pretty much wherever I have lived whether Queens or Brooklyn that’s where I felt most comfortable. When Pastor Hamatheite made the Altar Call I literally ran to the front. That’s how much I need healing and Restoration in my Life. I was Welcomed with open arms. Stephen has me but as a Caregiver, as a Single Woman I need someone, somewhere I can go.
Retiring was only part of the answer. I realized that I can’t do this on my own. I’m not strong. So I Rededicate my Life to Jesus.
God knew this was the Sunday for me. When one of the church secretaries had written down my name to introduce me Pastor Hamatheite knew me from my Twitter feed. Specifically my photo tweets of Wayside Baptist church.
Truly Lord I Need you Now. I Need you now Lord Right Away. Lord I need you to Restore Me. Lord Jesus I Need the Victory.
I Look to You Lord!
Next Sunday begins my New Members Classes and I’m really excited to begin!
