So many people I know are going through trials and challenges. We are so blessed to be able daily to rely on the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Many times I have used the scripture. "I can do all things through Christ" as a mantra repeated throughout the day to help me when I have been overwhelmed, in pain, discouraged, filled with fear, or at my wits end. It has helped remind me to have faith that Christ will give me the strength and enabling power to get through whatever I'm going through at the time. #holyhabits #lds #latterdaysaints #atonementofjesuschrist

Last week one of my children learned about natural consequences, yet again.
It was a great opportunity for her to learn a little bit about the repentance process. - Apologizing with a sincere heart, and cleaning up the mess you made or correcting the wrong.
It was also an opportunity for me, as her mother, to decide how to react to broken decorations and a chipped toilet seat. It had been a rough afternoon (during a rough week, but I'm starting to think that's my life now, lol) and thankfully, just minutes before, I had gone into my room dropped to my knees and sobbed to my Lord. I let out ALL of my feelings of inadequacy, burden, and sorrow to the One and Only person who could COMPLETELY understand. After my good cry, I asked for His help to carry me through the rest of the evening. Because of the moments I took for myself and my mental health, I was able to react with a sad yet calm attitude, and simply teach.
It is wonderful that we were both able to use Christ's Atonement in different ways. He atoned not just for our sins or wrong doings; He also had to experience every form of affliction, while in the Garden of Gethsemane, so that after His resurrection He could continue to be our Lord and Savior through our trials and the moments where we feel we just "can't even" anymore.

PS that framed document stayed completely intact, not even a crack!

“Once a fiercely independent woman, I now needed assistance to do everything...and I mean Everything. Humiliating, yet incredibly humbling.

I knew I had a decision to make. I remember thinking, okay, this is my new normal for a while. Better make the best of it. I could either lay there, wallowing in my misery, or fight to get well, and make something good of this bad situation.

I chose to fight.

I took things one day at a time, but had an unrelenting resolve to get myself back to hiking the Utah mountains with my dog again. Those bank robbers broke my body, but I wasn’t going to let them break my spirit.”- Becki Church excerpt from “Beating the Broken Path” read full story! LINK IN BIO

In the Bible when Jesus goes to wash Peter’s feet he responds,“Thou shalt never wash my feet.” Jesus responded, “If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me” (John 13:8).

In life we often have a difficult time allowing others to help us. It is often looked down upon and deeply affects our pride making us feel as though we are pitied and weak. However, in those times, it will do us good to see the Savior’s face in His humble servant who has come to “wash your feet”. Becki showed us that we have the ability to change our mindset, to use the help given to us as a springboard and conquer our difficulties one day at a time.

Jesus has performed for us the greatest act of service. In this life if we cannot allow others to serve us in small or even big ways, how can we expect our demeanor to change and be willing to receive Christ’s atonement and mercy for us?

Here’s the full quote. “Save for the few who defect to perdition, there is no habit, no addiction, no rebellion, no transgression, no apostasy, no crime exempted from the promise of complete forgiveness. That is the promise of the atonement of Christ.” We have that promise. No matter what we do. I know far to many people who feel they’ve gone to far or that that cants be apart of Jesus Christ’s gospel and his love. I am so sorry they feel this way, because they are completely wrong. No matter your faith, no matter for life style, no matter your perceived mistakes, and no matter what anyone else thinks, you deserve Christ’s love. He will forgive if you truly come to him in whatever way you can. Make progress towards him. As long as are moving forward and doing better than the day before. That may be forsaking our sins, or just praying for the first time in a while, or it could just be I’ll try harder tomorrow. Make your steps in your way, and know the Atonement of Jesus Christ is there for you.

2 Nephi 4:33 O Lord, wilt thou encircle me around in the robe of thy righteousness! O Lord, wilt thou make a way for mine escape before mine enemies! Wilt thou make my path straight before me! Wilt thou not place a stumbling block in my way--but that thou wouldst clear my way before me, and hedge not up my way, but the ways of mine enemy.

I am grateful for the closeness I feel from my Redeemer. I am grateful for the Father's plan that provides a clear path home. I am thankful for the power the Savior gives me to overcome the bitterness of mortality.

“Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power” (Ps 150:1).
Tonight we gathered to worship the arrived Yom Kippur in His sanctuary, the place of praise. As a unified voice, I felt like we were in the temple courts sending up praise to His mighty heavens. O praise ye the Lord! #praiseyethelord #yomkippur #atonementofjesuschrist #bloodofthelamb #repentence

“Some years ago our family encountered a major challenge. I went to the temple and there prayed earnestly for help. I was given a moment of truth. I received a clear impression of my #weaknesses, and I was shocked. In that #spiritually instructive moment, I saw a prideful woman doing things her own way, not necessarily the Lord’s way, and privately taking credit for any so-called accomplishment. I knew I was looking at myself. I cried out in my heart to Heavenly Father and said, “I don’t want to be that woman, but how do I change?”⠀

Through the pure spirit of revelation in the temple, I was taught of my utter need for a #Redeemer. I turned immediately to the #Savior Jesus Christ in my thoughts and felt my anguish melt away and a great hope spring up in my heart. He was my only hope, and I longed to cling only to Him. It was clear to me that a self-absorbed natural woman “is an enemy to God” and to people in her sphere of influence. In the #temple that day I learned it was only through the #Atonement of #Jesus #Christ that my prideful nature could change and that I would be enabled to do good. I felt His love keenly, and I knew He would teach me by the Spirit and change me if I gave my heart to Him, holding back nothing.⠀

I still fight my weaknesses, but I trust in the divine help of the Atonement. This pure instruction came because I entered the holy temple, seeking relief and answers. I entered the temple burdened, and I left knowing I had an all-powerful and all-loving Savior. I was lighter and joyful because I had received His light and accepted His plan for me.”⠀

Happy Yom Kippur! Remember Jesus Christ now atones for our sins. We are inscribed in the book of life by receiving that great salivation! #yomkippur #jews #jewsforjesus #atonementofjesuschrist #atonementofsins #salvation #lambofgod

Something worth thinking about. Our lives are not our own. How we live affects those around us. It’s important to take care of our soul so we can better care for the world around us. Please remember the Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those crushed in spirit. You can’t truly heal without Him. You are worth everything to Him.

Agency is the capacity to choose; it has sometimes also been called free will. Conditions of liberty allow the greatest possible "space" in which to exercise Agency; tyranny, by definition, is the attempt to oppress or repress another person's Agency.
"Next to the bestowal of life itself, the right to direct that life is God’s greatest gift to man. … Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give. It is inherent in the spirit of man. It is a divine gift. … Whether born in abject poverty or shackled at birth by inherited riches, everyone has this most precious of all life’s endowments—the gift of free agency; man’s inherited and inalienable right."
-David O. McKay, Agency and Responsibility

Mosiah 14:1-5 Yea, even doth not Isaiah say: Who hath believed our report, and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground; he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

I am grateful for the messages of hope from prophets. I am grateful for the second witness of Jesus Christ through the Book of Mormon. I am thankful for the healing influence of the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

This is so important to remember! Strengthen your roots (or your knowledge of the roots of the gospel in this case) and you will grow so much stronger in the gospel
Thanks @whit.larson for the great message! 🍯
