I have been having a lot of trouble finding things to blog about the past 2 weeks. Which is very weird because I am a talker. I always have conversations running through my mind. I can be given a subject that I know even just a little about and I can talk about it. I never have any trouble sharing in my 12 step meetings. So I have been a bit upset with myself. I have this blog so that I can put out there to y’all what I believe God wants you to know. I do it so that what I write will maybe resonate with or help even one of God’s other children. So, I have been upset that I have not been writing blogs like I believe that I should. Today, I just sat down at the computer and started typing.
What I really want you to know today is that God loves you!! Even if you don’t believe in Him. Even if you don’t go to church. Even if you don’t obey the commandments. Even if you think that you are not good enough. He loves you!!
I really love this quote from Elder Boyd K Packer: “no habit, no addiction, no rebellion, no transgression, no offense exempted from the promise of complete forgiveness” (Boyd K. Packer, in Conference Report, Oct. 1995, 22; or Ensign, Nov. 1995, 19).
There was a time in my life when I really needed to know that “ALL” of my sins could be forgiven if I would just believe in Christ, come to him with a broken heart and a contrite spirit and then apply His atonement to my life!
Today I have a wonderful relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Today I apply the atonement of Jesus Christ in my life daily. Today I obey to the best of my ability at all times and in all places. Today I have a wonderful life.
Yes, I am human and I make mistakes. And, Yes life is life and I face challenges, changes, heart ache and death. I face the whole myriad of feelings just like everyone else. But, today I don’t walk alone. Today I don’t wait until all of my own resources are exhausted before I ask my Savior for His help. Today I go to Him at the beginning and walk with Him through the “whatever”. Today I have peace and serenity in the midst of my heartache and pain. And it is all because I am His and He is mine!!
You can have this peace in your life to. He loves you and He is just waiting to give you all of the blessings that He possibly can. Just waiting for you.
The point of this post is just to say that “God loves you!!” Please know that.
