Walk by Faith, not by Sight!

             Enos 1:8 ...Because of thy faith in Christ, whom thou hast never before heard nor seen.
Faith is one of the most powerful thing in my life, it has been the thing that has helped me out of my darkest corners of life. Because of faith i have been forgiven of sins and be made whole, just like Enos in The Book of Mormon. Faith is to Hope for things which are not seen, but which are true. (Alma 32:21) Here we see that Faith and Hope are always hand in hand as we read in Moroni 7: 40 it says "How is it that ye can attain unto faith, save ye shall have Hope?" Hope is the first step. whether it is hope for a better life, a better tomorrow, or just for a feeling of peace. Now comes the Hard part, we know that only after the trial of our faith will we receive witness, this requires blindly following Christ and our Heavenly Father. Sometimes this is hard to do, but if we do it, we will be blessed just as Enos was blessed and may be forgiven of our sins. I know that if there is anyone we can trust it is Christ. So walk in the dark for a little while and trust them so that you can see the light. It is not far off, and i promise you that you will see it.

Want to be Helped

Everyone goes through those days when they are feeling down, beat up and alone. You are not, there are many people there for you, either your family, friends, Missionaries just like me or God. There is always somewhere to turn, but it is important to remember that we are the ones that have to do the turning, to take that first step, but after that we have to be ready to accept help. We need to swallow our pride! You have to want it. If you do i promise you that you will find it. So get down on your knees and pray. He is listening. You can also get on and there are missionaries that will be there to help you. So take the First Step. Make tomorrow better than yesterday.

My Blog Mission

I am in the MTC referral Center, and i am doing a blog to help reach out to those out there who need help. I have had some hard times in my life and i have made some pretty bad choices and i have come back from them and i have been able to find joy and peace. For those of you reading i want you to ponder if you have peace if you have joy. If you do great! If you don't then don't despair, believe me if someone like me can so can you! The way i have found what i was looking for is by accepting Jesus Christ in my life, accepting Him as my savior and as the one who made it so sinners like myself can be free of the chains of sin. So talk to me, let me help.
