is it possible that when you sin blessing are with held and if they are how do you get them back?


God's love is greater than our shortcomings    
"If God withholds a blessing, it is for our benefit. The thing with God is that He keeps His covenants. Always. A covenant is different than a contract. A contract is when each person agrees in a way that limits their own liability and fulfills their own desires. It's about each person getting what they want. A covenant is when each person makes the other person's cause their own. It's about each person making sure the other one is satisfied. So God doesn't say I get this if you do this, you get that if I do this. God says I want to bless you. And we say I want to glorify and serve You.

God keeps His end. He always has our best interest in heart. It is us that doesn't always have Him in our heart.

So does God withhold blessings? Yes. But it is for our good. God is always good. Crazy huh?

How do we get those blessings? I don't know. Ask Him. Pray. Serve Him. And He'll give you what you need. It just might not be what you ask for."

"Now, my brothers and sisters, let not Jesus’ redemption for us stop at the immortalizing dimension of the Atonement, “the loosing of the bands of death”. Let us grasp the proffered gift of eternal life! We will end up either choosing Christ’s manner of living or His manner of suffering! It is either “suffer even as I”, or overcome “even as [He] … overcame”. His beckoning command is to become “even as I am”. The spiritually settled accept that invitation, and “through the atonement of Christ,” they become and overcome! "

— Neal A. Maxwell
