Alright y’all this week was super tight! We stayed super busy! Things are going so well over here in Hattiesburg, The lord is really taking care of us let me tell ya! We have been blessed in so many different little ways. Each of us are blessed in so many different ways but its your choice to open your eyes and see those blessings that Heavenly Father has bestowed upon each of us. He loves us so much and has created many safety nets for us to fall into if we mess up. Lets talk about those safety nets for a bit.1. Baptism. We are promised to be washed of our sins when we make the covenant/promise with Heavenly Father to be baptize and follow our savior’s example. How amazing that we are able to be rinsed clean and have a new start.
2. The Sacrament. Each week we are blessed with the privilege to remember the Atonement/ the sacrifice that our Savior Jesus Christ made for us by dying for all of us sinners even though he was a spotless being. He loves us enough to die for us. Partaking of the sacrament is like a mini baptism each week. But we must prepare ourselves to partake and that brings us to the next and last point.
3. Repentance. Yes this is the one that scares the heck out of people. Its scary because its so important and can be exercised by EVERYONE. None of us are perfect and none of us ever will be that’s why Christ Atoned for our sins and gave us the GIFT of repentance. Its so amazing that we can mess up and then get another chance. We must be sincere and repent with a true desire in our heart to change not continue in the sin we have been committing.
This email is not to call any of y’all to repentance its more so to REMIND y’all how much Your Savior and Father in Heaven love you. I love this gospel and it has completely changed my life.
“Baptism is our VEHICLE to heaven” Ride that vehicle because it never goes away. Please enjoy this picture which again illustrates the love our savior has for us passing the sacrament! Have an amazing week y’all are a blessing to me. God bless y’all!
