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.
