I just read a great talk by Elder Gerrit W. Gong "Becoming Perfect in Christ" You should go read it too. I really enjoyed the talk and I loved this quote: Understanding the Savior’s freely given atoning love can free us from self-imposed, incorrect, and unrealistic expectations of what perfection is. Such understanding allows us … Continue reading I don’t have to be perfect

Perseverance, that's the principle that ties it all together for me. The one I was forgetting about as I've been whining about having to consistently keep working on trust, patience and humility. Of course I get to keep working on them, that perseverance (or enduring??). When I stop and let God do the work that … Continue reading Perseverance
