If you are not sure who Jesus Christ is or if YOU deserve to know Him. I encourage you to open that door of communication. He has room for each of us. He is our brother and even our best friend! I know He has become mine. He is the prince of peace and our advocate with the father. I find great and intense calm just thinking of His role in my life.
I want to keep my post fairly simple to avoid making my readers carve out an hour a day to finish. So let me just share with you the power that comes with seeking His friendship.
When going back to identifying our personal road blocks, we all have a spiritual road block to some degree. I hope to bring to light the reality of the true, almost taste-able peace He offers. I say taste-able because in my life as a co-parent, there are moments of great anxiety and longing for my sweet 3 year old Haven. It is easily the most difficult thing I have ever had to do. My Savior gives me a strength I couldn't have imagined in those moments I have to say bye to my girl- The sweetest, most innocent and fragile person in this world. I watch her struggle with feelings of guilt, sadness, confusion and her own longing as her dad and I rotate visits. It is heart breaking and yet the atonement heals. I can get out of bed on the days I feel I have no purpose because a spirited little voice isn't yelling, "Mom! I need to go potty!" I can fold her tiny little shirts and sort her tiny little socks because He is with me. He is whispering truth in my ear that she is happy, she knows I love her and even more important than that, He loves her and has a plan tailored for her. Worry and doubt can so quickly consume me if I do not turn to Him.
I just want to help open the minds of those feeling like it is impossible to overcome such personal daily issues, that the atonement is NOT only for sin. It is the single most powerful element in this life. If I can heal from the pains of having a broken family for my baby, He is there to learn what you need. Give Him that chance. Let him place peace and truth in your heart and mind. He will cure the anxieties and fears associated with this day and age.
