Baptism, Part 1

By Vision, April 5, 2021

Part 1:

At my immigration hearing, I was just standing there and this Canadian family behind me slipped me a piece of paper with a Scripture reference.
The verse was Romans 8:26:

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness.
We do not know what we ought to pray for,
but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.

I started to cry.
I couldn’t stop.
Somehow I knew God was watching over me.
I wasn’t alone.
I knew this God was real.
