Hello Hello from G.M.A. Cavite!
Sorry it has been a few weeks where I haven’t written a good blog post, but I’m finally getting around to it! I’ve been trying to read the Book of Mormon again and I’m now in to Mosiah. From previous times in reading the Book of Mormon I always remember that each time I read Mosiah, I learn SO MUCH. For those who aren’t familiar with the Book of Mormon, ASK THE MISSIONARIES OR A MEMBER OF THE LDS CHURCH. Its really changed my life and how I view things. This morning actually I was reading in the Book of Mosiah and I came across a few verses that I thought were crucial for us to understand in this life. I’ll share one of them with you here.
“But if ye will turn to the Lord with full purpose of heart, and put your trust in him, and serve him with all diligence of mind, if ye do this, he will, according to his own will and pleasure, deliver you out of bondage.” (Mosiah 7:33)
I just want to comment on the first thing that we learn here, “turn to the Lord with full purpose of heart”. If we give ALL of ourselves to Him, we won’t feel stressed, or like we aren’t doing enough. We’ll feel the eternal peace that we are promised when we are “delivered…out of bondage.”
Also, The Book of Mormon isn’t just for missionaries or members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Its for EVERYBODY. Please think or ponder about how your everyday life feels… Busy? Exhausted? Lazy? Do you feel progression? Or is it the same thing every day? I know that we can find the right way by reading the Book of Mormon and turning our actions to ways that the Lord wants for us. Please read it, even if you think its weird or like it won’t apply to you. Take my word for it. I thought that before, now I rely on it so much to help me. if you don’t want to ask somebody for a copy, take your mouse and click on the url at the top of your browser, enter in WWW.LDS.ORG, and on the top right hand side there is a link called “Scriptures” where you can find a link to the Book of Mormon online version. Please, at least go try it. I know its true! I love you all. Choose the Right, and you will be happy and FEEL happy. Stay safe!
