Inspiration I really needed today.

“There is no habit, no addiction, no rebellion, no crime exempted
from the promise of complete forgiveness."

Boyd K. Packer, “The Brilliant Morning of Forgiveness,” Ensign, Nov. 1995


How wonderful and powerful that is. It gave me chills and warmth at the same time. I often fall into the trap that " I am worthless and that my wife and kids would be better off without me. I am worthless. I can never be forgiven for what I have done. My wife is right to hate me."

But above we see how we can be forgiven and that those things, those anchors of sin that I have unwillingly clung to can be dropped and I can be washed clean. Yes, I can be clean. I guess I need to take the above and remember that whenever I start to have those feelings. To all the Mother's out there. Happy Mother's Day with all my heart.

"If, through our unrighteous choices, we have lost our footing on that path, we must remember the agency we were given, agency we may choose to exercise again. I speak especially to those overcome by the thick darkness of addiction. If you have fallen into destructive, addictive behaviors, you may feel that you are spiritually in a black hole. As with the real black holes in space, it may seem all but impossible for light to penetrate to where you are. How do you escape? I testify the only way is through the very agency you exercised so valiantly in your premortal life, the agency that the adversary cannot take away without your yielding it to him. "

— Robert D. Hales
