Mosiah 27:29 — My soul hath been redeemed from the gall of bitterness and bonds of iniquity. I was in the darkest abyss; but now I behold the marvelous light of God. My soul was racked with eternal torment; but I am snatched, and my soul is pained no more.
I read this scripture today and both it and the verse before use the word "snatch" and "snatched". I thought that was a cool word to use. I think of the times that I use that word and it's when I grab something quickly. So it made me think of the savior grabbing me and saving me from this addiction. It was just a neat way to think of this scripture. I never noticed that word or analyzed it that way before.


very cool    
"Don't you love it when you find a cool use of language in the scriptures? It's true: what a cool picture that word paints. I'm sure the Savior wants to "snatch" us all from our sins. We just have to be "snatch"-able!"

"I have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "
