It has been a while, and there's not a ton of time to write today either, so I`m just going to tell you all something that I have been feeling a lot lately. That is:
God loves us, so he lets us experience hard things, and he lets us feel our weaknesses. But, when we do our best to thrive in hard situations, He helps us do the things we are not able to do on our own.
The power that he uses to get us through these hard situations is the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, and it is free for anyone! The way to receive that power is to believe that Christ is able to help you, change the things in life that are not in line with what he has asked of us, promise through baptism to follow Him (and remember those promises every day), seek to be worthy of the spirit and follow it, and do the best to keep a hopeful attitude and smile throughout the process.
Those 5 steps help us receive strength and comfort. They heal us, they help us. They fill in the gaps that separate us from people, from our dreams, from our Heavenly Father and our home with him. They are the key to one of the greatest gifts we have been given, even the gift of the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
Use that gift every day:) It will fill in the gaps in your life, I promise!
Love you all!
