Who Is the TRUE God?

The following Quote resonated with me yesterday:

We are not worldly being having a spiritual experience but spiritual beings having a worldly experience.

So the Solution to the problem is Spiritual not worldly.

This has been the case with me. I had created my own concept of God in my life. One that was a mix mash of different beliefs that suited my needs. I would match this concept up to the God taught to us by the Prophets but would also include some of my own ideas. This is what I mean:

My concept of god was like a quilt all intricately woven over many many years. The quilt was a comfort to me and a place to escape. Pornography did the same thing for me; a place to find quick comfort and Escape and Unknowingly, subconsciously it became woven into the quilt. And its now very difficult to take out.

Good thing is, the True God, the One who reveals Himself to us on His terms, who is defined by who He is and not by Mans interpretation will show Himself to us. Joseph Smith was seeking after Him as President Monson is today. Surrendering to this God has started the healing. He is now helping me to build a whole new quilt; my old one needs to be burned!!

"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. "
