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.

"Lucifer will do all in his power to keep you captive. You are familiar with his strategy. He whispers: “No one will ever know.” “Just one more time.” “You can’t change; you have tried before and failed.” “It’s too late; you’ve gone too far.” Don’t let him discourage you. When you take the path that climbs, that harder path of the Savior, there are rewards along the way. When you do something right, when you resist temptation, when you meet a goal, you will feel very good about it. It is a very different kind of feeling than you have when you violate commandments—an altogether different feeling. It brings a measure of peace and comfort and provides encouragement to press on. "

— Richard G. Scott
