DON’T MISS THIS – 7 September 2020
“‘…the people who were saved’ (10:12). I think it’s so important to recognize that God’s role in this is ‘Savior’, not ‘destroyer’…
See the character of God.”
That is what we are looking at together today in these chapters, and in this podcast: The character of God.
“…will ye not now return unto me, and repent of your sins, and be converted, that I may heal you?”3 Nephi 9:13
It sounds a lot like the comments share in last Sunday’s blogpost:
“In the final judgment it will not be the unrepentant sinner begging Jesus, ‘Let me stay.’ No… Knowing Christ’s character, I believe that if anyone is going to be begging on that occasion, it would probably be Jesus begging the unrepentant sinner, ‘Please, choose to stay. Please, use my Atonement.”https://livingandtravelingwithkids.com/2020/09/day-315-3-nephi-1-7/
This morning I woke up and everything in me said, “Run!” And I have had this pull before – it’s not that I want to run away from Bryant, and it’s not from the children, either. But everyone else – everyone and everything. And, always, when I feel like running away, it is because I have an issue that I haven’t worked out, or a fear that I haven’t come to terms with yet. So I sat in my bedroom for an hour this morning, and I wrote out everything – a thought dump, right? And I really got some clarity on what is happening in my mind and in my body. No resolutions, but definitely clarity.
And, after some time in prayer and some time managing my mind, compassionately, I started to feel the Lord’s pull. And I felt it stronger than the pull of my fear. Please choose to stay. I am the Savior. I am the Healer. ‘I am the light and the life of the world… Come unto me … Come unto me … and be saved (3 Nephi 9:18,22).’
Thank you for not running from me. I love you with all my heart. I’m glad we can learn through this life together. And have fun doing it.
