When we face mountains in our lives and tackle them, we are experiencing the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Isn't it comforting to know that we have an Older Brother on our side helping us make weak things become strong. Isn't it comforting to know that change is truly possible.
"And if men come unto me, I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them" (Ether 12:27).
God gave us life and hopes that we will make good of it.
He wants us to be happy, and in order to do that, we must live our life in harmony with His laws. Among His greatest gift though, is the gift of eternal life, and in order to obtain that we need to live the kind of life that He intended...full of
Service to others
What are we doing to honor our lives-this great gift from God?
I wonder how often my complexes, fears, judgements, and attitudes are based on the worry of other's opinions. When I saw this quote, it touched me greatly. As I overcome my weaknesses and become a better person, I hope that I can become more like a little child-loving, joyful, and free. I hope that I more fully see the good in my surroundings and the good in other people. I hope that I can worry less about what other people are thinking of me and worry more about what God is thinking of me.
