Mosiah 5:2 — And they all cried with one voice, saying: Yea, we believe all the words which thou hast spoken unto us; and also, we know of their surety and truth, because of the Spirit of the Lord Omnipotent, which has wrought a mighty change in us, or in our hearts, that we have no more disposition to do evil, but to do good continually.
was this scripture. An elder who had been in recovery for several years quoted this scripture and said that it was a key to his recovery. I love it because it's not about white knuckling or putting a single bandaid on a shark attack victim, it's about the changing of the inner man (or woman) so that "we have no more disposition to do evil, but to do good continually."

In other words, it's about conversion. It's about success. And it's what we should be praying for and working for every day.

Very Helpful    
"This scripture is very helpful - it's what my Bishop is working with me on, "forsaking" and this is a really good example of people who were able to. Doesn't make it feel so impossible for me.
Thanks"

"Nothing is beyond [Christ’s] redeeming reach or His encircling empathy. Therefore, we should not complain about our own life’s not being a rose garden when we remember who wore the crown of thorns! Having bled at every pore, how red His raiment must have been in Gethsemane, how crimson that cloak! No wonder, when Christ comes in power and glory, that He will come in reminding red attire, signifying not only the winepress of wrath, but also to bring to our remembrance how He suffered for each of us in Gethsemane and on Calvary!"

— Neal A. Maxwell
