""Believest thou in the power of Christ unto salvation?... If thou believest in the redemption of Christ thou canst be healed" (Alma 15:6, 8)

The healing most think of is the body, What else might require the healing power of Jesus Christ?
My soul requires healing. It is interesting the plague of the mind by what I have chosen to expose myself to. The dis-ease of the spirit. How many times would I have my peace robbed or my mind hi-jacked bythoughts. I know that Jesus Christ will make these thoughts pure, the feelings inside peaceful. I am working to ask him more often what he desires me to do. This has helped a lot. I am praying more often than ever. Everytime a strong emotion that I am unable to cope in a healthy way with I pray for his strength. I am grateful to have this knowledge of his redeeming strength.

Write about your need to draw no the redeeming (liberating , transforming) power of Jesus Christ: I was just reflecting about ten years ago when I was struggling to quit smoking, the idea that I would make it through a day without a ciggarette seemed miraculous, now as I look at other areas of my life, the thoughts of lust and viewing of pornography. I have hopes in his redeeming power because it seems every bit as distant, and yet hope and faith helped me through the smoking habit. I was compelled to smoke the same as to look at beauty perverted. I need his liberating, transforming power though as I was not able to rid myself of the substances, it was only when I turned over to him.

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
