Saying that God is your Father is not the same as knowing deep in your heart of hearts that you truly are a child of God – that He created you and that, as a result, you are a part of Divinity yourself. I believe that most of God’s children would be awed and amazed by the depth of Love and Reverence that our Creator has for us. He truly cherishes and adores us and His efforts and desire to assist us is beyond mortal comprehension. We have, within each of us, a connection to God’s light and love. Our willingness (or unwillingness) to know God and to know who we truly are is like a dimmer switch. The more we seek for God and His truth, the brighter the light and love within us becomes. As we come to know who we truly are and who our Creator truly is, our internal light shines brighter and brighter – bringing peace and joy into our lives and providing greater light and love in the world around us.
I love Valentine’s Day! Not because it is the only day that I get gifts and attention from my sweetheart but because it has become a day in which I always find myself reflecting on how incredibly blessed I am to have a man in my life who treats me with love and respect everyday. I know that is not a blessing everyone enjoys and I do not take it for granted. Whatever your life circumstance – I hope that you too receive much love daily. If that is not circumstance you find yourself in, remember that God loves you and desires for you to be happy! Happy Valentine’s Day…maybe we should make that Valentine’s Year!
As I was shown my life as it would transpire, it was made clear to me that my choices would be what dictated the final outcome – the life that I ultimately would have. The life I was shown was the life I would have if I chose to depend on God and use my Savior’s assistance. It was not a life free of sickness, pain or difficulties. It was, however, the life that ultimately would assist me in becoming the best me possible. Many times as I met with the Father of my Soul – I was reminded that I would need to “Remember Him”. I was promised that as long as I “Remembered Him”, I would succeed. Remembering Him does not remove all of the pain or challenges in my life – but it clearly makes the difference as to whether I bloom and grow or wither with resentment and bitterness. Life was never meant to be easy – it is meant to teach and improve us. So when you are faced with a difficult challenge in life, remember the choice is yours whether you get burned or whether you become refined by the experience – the key is in “Remembering Him”.
