Today was a big day for me. It was the first time I have had the privilege of partaking the Sacrament in over a year. It was a bitter sweet feeling as the tray as the priesthood holder approached to serve our row. My heart was beating fast and my hands trembling, knowing this was day one of a new life and year for me.

The sister sitting next to me, passed the tray and I humble partook of the bread and water. As tears ran down my cheeks, I knew that my Heavenly Father was with me and letting me know I have been forgiven for my sins and its time to move forward.

Don't keep looking back and dwelling on the past. Now this is not to say to forget what I have learned, but don't hold on saying I'm not good enough because of my past. My Heavenly Father loves me and has carried me through the muck and I have triumphed.

I pray each of you can find it within yourself to triumph and find victory.


That's awesome!    
"I'm so proud of you, and everyone, really.. who overcomes and begins to move on. Remember, success is a progressive realization of a worthwhile dream or goal. Keep at it, you're Heavenly Father loves you! Not for your success in life, or how good at living life you are, but for who you are! There's no being bad enough, no person place or thing, no condition or circumstance (hence 'unconditional' love) that can make him stop loving you."

"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. "

— Boyd K. Packer
