""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.

"Brothers and sisters, stay on the straight and narrow path. No, stay in the middle of the straight and narrow path. Don't drift; don't wander; don't dabble; be careful. Remember, do not flirt with evil. Stay out of the devil's territory. Do not give Satan any home-field advantage. Living the commandments will bring you the happiness that too many look for in other places. "
