A blog devoted to God and helping fellow Christians keep positive in Faith and in Christ.
It would be awesome to hear from a Mormon perspective, because I really want to start going to the Church again and building my relationship with Christ.
But I feel like I’ve dug myself a hole too deep to get out of.
Since I was baptized into the Church, I’ve done just about everything wrong. VERY wrong.
I don’t really want to go into details out in the open, but if you are truly willing to listen to what I have to say and give me advice, I would appreciate it more than anything.
1. Jessica Christopherson: She is my best friend since 3rd grade. God has given me this girl as a huge blessing. She is my sister in Christ, above all things, and I am so grateful that she has been by my side through these years to serve as an example and as a comforter through many many trials. She is truly touched by God, and will without a doubt go on to shine her light in the darkness of other’s lives and show them the truth. I love her so much, and I wish that I could have been the friend to her that she was to me. I love you, Jess.
2. Steven Josephson: This guy. He’s been such a huge blessing in my life. He has really helped hold me together in some situations, and to get the ball rolling in my spiritual life here at college. He has been a great influence and a shining example. He reminds me of Jessica, in a lot of ways. Like, a Mormon guy version of Jessica. It’s pretty great.
3. Chauncie Haight: Chauncie is one of my best friends here at College. She is so awesome. We’re really similar and we have a great time together. She has been a great blessing as a friend, but also a great challenge as a friend. She has strengthened me so much in many different ways, but has also influenced me negatively sometimes. I wouldn’t change any of it for anything. I love her so so much. She is very dear to my heart, and I know that God loves her so much! I know this because he put her in my life. :)
4. Christopher Knapp: This is my dad. I love him with all my heart. Not just ‘cause he’s my dad. But he has been such a beautiful example of God’s love and grace in my life. He’s supported and loved me through everything in my life, the good and the bad. The other day, in Institute, someone said something that really made me appreciate my father: “What if we trusted our Heavenly Father the way we trusted our dad?” I thought to myself, “Wow. I’m really slacking off on trusting my Heavenly Father then.”
5. My LDS family: Everyone at the Church has been so good to me. From my close friends, to my new friends, to the Elders, to the Bishop… It has been such a wonderful experience knowing these people. I am so glad that God led me to the Church when he did. And I know he did it because these specific people would be there to help me. I love you guys so much.
Now here’s a cute puppy to represent my joy.
Goodness gracious, I am so very excited!
and REALLY nervous.
Any words of encouragement would be great. ^_^
God is sooooooooooooo GREAT!!!!
when I think of how much God loves me.
I keep thinking about the patriarchal blessing and how I can’t wait till I am ready to receive my own because I want to hear what God has to say to me.
But then I realized that God talks to me everyday. He gave us the scriptures so we could talk to Him and know of His great love WHENEVER WE WANT. His love letters are at our fingertips for us to read again and again. How amazing is that!
So, yeah, I’m still excited for the day to come when I can be ready to receive my patriarchal blessing. But I’ve got God ALWAYS, no matter what.
I can’t even begin to address how frustrated I am right now about people who have the craziest mixed up misconceptions about the Mormon Church. Does anyone else feel these frustrations?
During my meeting with the missionaries today, they invited me to be baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! Thank you so much God! You have brought me nearer and nearer to you. Only you know my heart. <3
I’ve been called by God to learn about the Mormon church, to what purpose I cannot yet know (although I have a strong feeling it is to be baptized in the Church).
If you are Mormon and have a strong grasp on Mormon fundamentals and beliefs, possibly as a missionary, I would love to talk to you and learn all I can about the LDS church!
Please send me an ask, or respond to this post if you would like to talk. I appreciate it greatly! Thank you! :)
