Who am I....really?

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am a daughter of God. I KNOW my Savior, Jesus Christ lives! I know he knows me personally, by name, and he LOVES me! I know he suffered excruciating pain and died for ME...not just me but every single person who has ever lived or will ever live on this earth! His love is endless, limitless, unconditional and eternal.
Does this mean that because I have a testimony, my challenges in life will end? I believe it is almost the opposite. Because I know my Savior lives and he loves me, Satan wants to try and confuse me and convince me that I am worthless. He wants me to believe there is no HOPE in this life and so when I feel down, I should just stay down. I am choosing right now....TODAY to try my very hardest not to listen or be confused by his lies anymore!!!
Forgiveness is available to ALL those who seek it. Repentance is possible. The Atonement can bring us peace even in the most painful situations we experience but we have to ASK! Christ is waiting for us to accept His love in our life. I realize I cannot succed without His help. I am imperfect every single day. Accepting ALL He has to offer me is the only way to truly come unto Him.
I am so grateful for the knowledge that I have and I hope to learn from hard experiences so that I can become stronger.

A Shout Out

I just wanted to make you all aware of an amazing, uplifting blog to follow. My good friend (from a million years ago) Shanna has a blog that makes me smile, everyday! She is so very honest about her feelings but still has a way of bringing the love of our Savior into every aspect of her life. She is truly an inspiration to me for so very many reasons! I love you Shanna!

A New Day

The sun came up today. Even though it's freezing outside, the Lord knows how much I need The Son! It is so easy in this world of reality to become bitter over things we can't control. To wonder, how do these things happen and where do I go from here. I have had many of these experiences in my life and sadly the older I get I am less accepting of them. Why do our bodies not work the way they should......over and over...why do our hearts get broken, why must we see our children cry, why must we grow and become stronger? All these questions have no answer for me but for some reason I get up each day, breathe in and out, resolve to do better and be better, try to find a purpose and keep going. Father in Heaven, thank you for the sun today to lift my spirits and for Thy Son to attain everlasting life.

What is going on?

Could someone please tell me.....Can this world become any more corrupt? Can there be any more justifications? Will our families, our leaders, out teachers, our politicians and our government ever take responsibility for their actions? Where do we go from here and how do we protect our families? Is it ever possible to escape this world entirely? Just asking

Prayer of Thanks

Thank you Lord for thy tender mercies and keeping me ever in thy care. Thank you for friends who have no idea the impact they have on my life. Thank you for the 3 beautiful, amazing, perfect children you have entrusted in my care, they mean more to me than the air I breathe. Thank you for parents whose love is unconditional and show me through all they've done and continue to do for me. May I be worthy of your love and tenderness always, Amen.

Give me Strength

Wow, this is so unusual for me. Not only is this a post without a picture but its a reflective post.

With the New Year always comes new challenges it seems. This year of course is no different. Why does the Lord ask so much of us? Why does he seem to push us to our limit over and over again. Am I not learning my lesson? Am I not growing as He would have me do? Or is it just so I will remember how much I am loved by Him and trusted with difficult things? Whatever the reason, I don't accept it very well.

Tomorrow is Sunday. Another day to strengthen myself. Another day to feel the Spirit in my life. Another day to renew to be better, to try harder to be Christlike. I just LOVE Sundays!
