Never-Ending Love

When we worship our Heavenly Father faithfully and obediently, we invite His love into our hearts. When we truly worship God, we allow Him to rule over our days and our lives. In turn, we grow to love him even more deeply as we sense His love for us.

Now is the Time

The time is now to determine if you will receive the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ or to reject it. By accepting the love of Christ, we will build a lifelong relationship with Him. Or if we shall turn away from Him and take a different path that leads to misery and death.

To Honest Seekers of Truth: Are You Living “Your Truth” or a Lie?

The world today does not appear to comprehend the idea that we are expected to accept and believe eternal truths, or divine answers, before hearing them. Most likely it threatens the confirmation bias of their own right to define their own identity and individual person. Their authentic and true self is a threat when exposed to the eternal truths of our Heavenly Father.

Humbled by the Cost of His Sacrifice

We ought to be humbled as Christ humbled himself. The cost of our discipleship may never match the cost of Christ's sacrifice. However, our cost of discipleship is our worthy attitude and behavior as we become living sacrifices unto God through faithful obedience (Romans 12:1-2).

The “Forgotten Ones” Of the Church – Our Heavenly Father Sees You and Loves You.

Life truly has its struggles, and we face them the best we are capable in facing them. We endure as faithfully as possible. Hoping doors of opportunity of true fellowship may open up. To see through the circumstances, we are facing and receive those blessings we stand in need of.

How Christ’s Love Changes Everything

The pure love of Christ is not above obedience to the commandments and will of God. It is inseparable with our call to faithfully obey the will of God and all that he has commanded us. It is also greater than our faith. It requires us to be humble and contrite in our spirit. Keeping us fixed on the way to minister, associate, and develop and grow into a Christ-like character and nature.

Recovery is a Selfish Program

The right attitude and behavior rests on the reality of the sacrifices one needs to make to engage in their own recovery program. This may involve being selfish to grow, learn, and discover who you are. People are not going to agree with this process. They may not even like what is happening.

Rising to my own personal potential means that I put the plan in action. That I take the necessary steps and follow through. This requires my level of motivation and commitment regarding my desire and intent. By putting forth my best effort - my Heavenly Father will bring about those blessings.

Character Creates Courage

The cost of recovery is the very act of denying who we presently are and willing to put to death all that old person represents. Burying the old and rising up in a newness of life. No longer bound to the shackles of our addiction, compulsions, or other dysfunctional behaviors. We are freed to develop a character that creates a person of courage, integrity, and faith.

Step Two

As for me and my own personal journey and recovery - for my own spiritual growth and mindful living - I choose to consistently and continually to trust in Christ and know who God, my Eternal Father is, and have the guidance and companion of the Holy Spirit. So long as I commit myself over to those spiritual disciplines that help me gain greater awareness, peace of mind, and restoring me to a place of spiritual health and well-being.

Extraordinary Miracles Through Ordinary Individuals

To become the hero of my own personal story and life - I need to take up my own hero's journey and place my faith in God and trust in His will and divine providence.

Restoring True Masculinity

My own spiritual journey and recovery has shown what true masculinity is all about. The character and integrity. Finding joy, since happiness requires right circumstances, means to come to a place of experiencing life - regardless of the good, bad, and those ugly moments.

Hurrying the Will of God

We are called to endure patiently. Live out our course. And seek faithfully to live out the principle truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is accomplished through those covenants we make along the way. It is also accomplished when we desire to seek after the will of God for our own lives.

King of Righteousness and Peace

Like all other faithful predecessors (Adam on down to Noah) the priesthood authority after the order of the Son of God continued to be faithfully preserved. It is the order of which Christ is referred to as our High Priest.

A Greater Follower of Righteousness

There is much conflict in our culture and society today. Each one of us are exposed to warring factions. And it is quite disheartening and troubling to our hearts and minds. Yet we are promised by our Heavenly Father to experience the joy and peace the Everlasting Gospel provides us (John 14:27). A life of abundance because of Christ's infinite atonement (John 10:10).

The Symbolism of the Tower of Babel

“Noah Found Grace in the Eyes of the Lord”

Through Noah - there will come a brief period of rest from all that which bore wickedness. Through Christ, we come to find everlasting peace and rest from the carnal mind and vain imaginations of our own hearts.

The Lord’s Spirit Shall Not Always Strive with Man

Thus, to have the Lord's Spirit strive with us means that we are willing to allow the Holy Spirit to rule over our hearts and minds. To judge us and guide us into those moral truths of our Heavenly Father. It is therefore to this end that we understand how the Holy Spirit is limited to how long it will strive with us - as we make our sojourn and pilgrimage through this mortal existence.

The Gospel of Christ – Our Spiritual Refuge

Noah and his family were saved of (or through) water from the spiritual decay and immorality surrounding them. The flood destroying the old life in order to bring about a newness of life. It is the very nature and covenant of our baptism.

Hearken Unto God and Heed Him

By reading and studying through the scriptures, listening to those ordained by our Heavenly Father, teaching these things unto our families and others - we are to also engage in meaningful and sincere prayer. Through prayer and fasting, we are able to become conquerors and overcome Satan and those who uphold the work of the adversary (D&C 10:5).
