I was driving to work today and it dawned on me - I have absolutely no faith. I just admitted it...and it was strangely liberating. This realization has I think evaded me in the past because of the strong feelings I have for God and the Savior. Even in my darkest moments I've always been susceptible and sensitive to the Spirit. I feel it now even as I say that. But that's not faith. Indeed not "faith unto repentance" (yet). I realized in that moment that Lucifer too knew what I know...but he had no faith in the Savior (among other issues)...and he walked away. I think making this distinction was important for me to grow... if I will (Alma 33:23).

Funny i didn't see this sooner. My stake president has postponed my disciplinary counsel because he thinks I don't have the faith to handle one yet..? Honestly I didn't give the concept a lot of consideration even though he's reiterated it several times. Almost like in one ear and out the other...just going with the flow. But now it seems so obvious. I have no faith!

"[The Savior] is saying to us, "Trust me, learn of me, do what I do. Then, when you walk where I am going," He says, "we can talk about where you are going, and the problems you face and the troubles you have. If you will follow me, I will lead you out of darkness," He promises. "I will give you answers to your prayers. I will give you rest to your souls.""
