“They had viewed themselves in their own carnal state, even less than the dust of the earth. And they all cried aloud with one voice, saying: O have mercy, and apply the atoning blood of Christ that we may receive forgiveness of our sins, and our hearts may be purified; for we believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who created heaven and earth, and all things; who shall come down among the children of men.”
This is the answer I feel.
This is one of the things I really need to insert my name in to.
“I have viewed myself in my own carnal state, even less than then dust of the earth. And I cried aloud, saying: O have mercy, and apply the atoning blood of Christ that I may receive forgiveness of my sins, and my heart may be purified; for I believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who created heave and earth, and all things; who shall come down among the children of men.”
I need to get on my knees and do this very thing.
I need to believe Jesus Christ, not just believe IN Him. I need to put my complete trust in He and the Father and show them that I’m ready to turn myself over completely.
I don’t like having resentments.
I don’t like having fears.
I don’t like being so proud and egotistical.
I don’t like feeling frustrated or selfish.
I want to be happy continually.
I want to be free of sin and temptation.
I want to do what Heavenly Father sees as best for me and for my family.
I want to realize my full potential.
I want to serve multiple missions with my wife and family.
I want to go back to Chile and serve the people there.
I want to live a life where others will feel His presence because of my example and testimony.
I want to teach my kids through example that I know the Savior is the only way I can return to live with Heavenly Father.
I’m grateful for the gospel that clarifies the purpose of this life – to prepare to meet God.
