This past week, our class studied the first paragraph of The Family: A Proclamation to the World". There is a lot of great info in that one little paragraph and as I mentioned earlier, I was struggling to know exactly what the Lord needed me to share with the dozens of people who read my blog. (A quick shout out to my family and close friends who have stuck with me and my ramblings this far. Thank you so much for your support!)
Before I continue, allow me to share the first paragraph with you...
WE, THE FIRST PRESIDENCY and the Council of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
Again, so many wonderful truths contained in that paragraph, but the one that I would like to focus on today is learned in the very last two words...
We are His children, created in His image, and He loves us.
And because we are His children, He has blessed us with prophets, apostles, and most importantly, a Savior. All whom have taught us and continue to teach us the things that we need to do in order to live with God again.
"Because our Father loves his children, he will not leave us to guess about what matters most in this life concerning where our attention could bring happiness or our indifference bring sadness...We can expect that God won't just tell us a few interesting things about the family; he will tell us what a family ought to be and why."
I Am a Child of God
And now a challenge for you...
*If you have not asked God if you are truly His child, DO IT. What are you waiting for?
I am loving my second chance at life.
