God is There

Ammon: Believest thou that there is a God?

King Lamoni: I do not know what that meaneth.

Ammon: Believest thou that there is a Great Spirit?

King Lamoni: Yea.

Ammon: This is God. Believest thou that this Great Spirit, who is God, created all things which are in heaven and in the earth?

King Lamoni: Yea, I believe that he created all things which are in the earth; but I do not know the heavens.

Ammon: The heavens is a place where God dwells and all his holy angels.

King Lamoni: Is it above the earth?

Ammon: Yea, and he looketh down upon all the children of men; and he knows all the thoughts and intents of the heart; for by his hand were they all created from the beginning.
All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator.
So, believe in God; believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend. And again, believe that ye must repent of your sins and forsake them, and humble yourselves before God; and ask in sincerity of heart that he would forgive you; and now, if you believe all these things see that ye do them. And again I say unto you as I have said before, that as ye have come to the knowledge of the glory of God, or if ye have known of his goodness and have tasted of his love, and have received a remission of your sins, which causeth such exceedingly great joy in your souls, even so I would that ye should remember, and always retain in remembrance, the greatness of God, and his goodness and long-suffering towards you, and humble yourselves even in the depths of humility, calling on the name of the Lord daily, and standing steadfastly in the faith of that which is to come. And behold, I say unto you that if ye do this ye shall always rejoice, and be filled with the love of God, and always retain a remission of your sins; and ye shall grow in the knowledge of the glory of him that created you, or in the knowledge of that which is just and true.
Believe in you Heavenly Father, and humble yourself before Him so He can bless you! He loves you and wants opportunities to give you all that He has in store for you.

Follow the Straight and Narrow

We all have been given the ability to choose our own path. "Each of us has come to this earth with all the tools necessary to make correct choices." "We all know where we want to go, and it does matter which way we go, for by choosing our path, we choose our destination."
As we choose to follow the Great Mediator of all we choose eternal life, I know that by choosing the right we can all enjoy the peace, happiness and the blessings that our Heavenly Father has in store for us!

"I, the Lord, will forgive whom I will forgive, but of you it is required to forgive all men." D&C 64:10

"Behold, he who has repented of his sins, the same is forgiven, and I, the Lord, remember them no more. By this ye may know if a man repenteth of his sins—behold, he will confess them and forsake them." D&C 58:42-43

     Forgiveness is not easy but it is a commandment given to us from our Father in Heaven. As we forgive others the things they have done to "wrong" us the lord promises that we can also be forgiven if we repent of the sins we have committed.
     We are commanded to forgive everyone, even if they may have deeply hurt us, but God will forgive those whom he will forgive. He will forgive only those who desire to be forgiven. If we forgive then we are able to let go of that bitterness we are holding inside which keeps us from being happy. I think this video give a great example of this.

Rest Unto Your Souls

"And the Lord said unto me: Marvel not that all mankind, yea, men and women, all nations, kindreds, tongues and people, must be born again; yea, born of God, changed from their carnal and fallen state, to a state of righteousness, being redeemed of God, becoming his sons and daughters; and thus they become new creatures; and unless they do this, they can in nowise inherit the kingdom of God." Mosiah 27:25-26

It is through the healing Atonement of Jesus Christ that we may have the strength to stand tall and strong and to have our souls be filled—with light, understanding, joy, and love. His invitation is extended to "all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he denieth none that come unto him"
