4 Months, I can't believe it's only been 4 months. In this amount of time I feel I've learned a whole lifetime of experiences. Adjusting to life was a million times harder than I ever expected and it still is hard. I'm still trying to adjust and i hope in some ways that I never fully adjust.
Today is short I just want to share this...
From my experience and from being home, I always feel the spirit the strongest when someone talks about the Atonement and Christ’s sacrifice for us. I can’t believe what he was willing to sacrifice for us and I can’t believe that he was willing to take up on himself all of our weaknesses and mistakes and every sort of suffering we go through in this life. I honestly can’t believe it when I think of all the things I have done to misuse or neglect the Atonement in my life, I feel sad and I want to embrace this gift of love that Christ gave to us.
Being home I feel the Atonement is more vital than ever in my life. There's a lot of emotional struggles we go through and weaknesses and just everything and if I can't have the Atonement there to help cover up for these things than I would just give up, it's to hard to keep going sometimes.
But again the Atonement is there I feel it in my life, in my veins. It provides hope and love and helps me to keep going. It's provided to me when I choose to do God's will.
I love this Gospel, I love everything about it and I love that through the Gospel I have the solid hope that I can change and become better!!
I know that the Gospel and the Atonement are true as well.
