Well hey there,
It's me again.
So I have been learning a lot over here in California. It is actually amazing how we don't recognize how much we are learning, but if we take time to stop we can really see it.
So let me tell you guys a secret.....
God loves us so much.
I will now let you guys know why I say that.
Here in my life I have had these moments where I really have to remember that no one is perfect, especially me. I have so many weaknesses and so many moments that God gives me to remember that. I stumbles across a scripture this last week that helped me through some hard moments this week.
"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us," (Hebrews 12:1)
I HAVE WEAKNESSES. Okay I admitted it.
I have been working a lot in retail and it is HARD. Like not hard physically, but mentally it can be. To be a disciple of Christ who doesn't focus on worldly things, or someone who is constantly nice to everyone can be a HARD thing, but I love this scripture for the support it gives me.
SO God loves us. He wants us to win our daily battles. He wants us to be strengthened but him.
We need patience to bear our weaknesses.
Pray for it. Ask god to help you with your patience. Set goals and strategies. Life will not be easier, but you will feel better.
I hope you all can see the love that God has for you even though we are all imperfect humans. Look for his love, Feel of his strength.
P.S. If you haven't seen Elder Holland's new video on mental illnesses I invite you to watch it. The spirit you feel is amazing. God truly does love us!
