yesterday my wife told me she was praying that she could have faith in her Father as she said she had been for the millionth time lattley and recieved a clear spiritual witness telling her she needed to have faith in me. i recieved the same witness when she told me.

we've been seperated for sometime. i've commited horrible things outside of my heart that she knows not of. she will soon. nevertheless why would God tell her that? why would i feel the Spirit when she told me? my mission president use to say "information leads to inspiration". would God have inspired her differently if she was properly informed at the time? i'm completley informed i think...and i felt it. even as i write i know He loves me and i feel like a child who understands not how great blessings the Father hath in his own hands and prepared for must understand I've done terrible things that should serve, i would think, only to destroy my faith and the faith of my wife and we should have no right or reason to feel these things...but i do...and i haven't for a long time.


A ray of hope    
"That's amazing and wonderful, Luke. Pray for those spiritual promptings to continue for you, and promise the Lord that you will follow them; then do it. Move forward humbly, and the Lord will lead you. I will pray for you. The Lord DOES love you. Turn yourself over to him and trust him."

Just a thought    
"I wonder if the Lord is trying to tell you that you can become trustworthy, regardless of the things you have done. One of my good friends is a registered pedophile. He travelled a very long, hard path to get back, but he now has all his priesthood blessings restored. And the general authority that restored them said it was as if they were never taken. You can become worthy of your wife’s faith. Your Savior is waiting; anytime you are ready to let Him help."

"Just as the landfill requires dedicated work and attention, laboriously applying layer after layer of fill to reclaim the low-lying ground, our lives also require the same vigilance, continually applying layer after layer of the healing gift of repentance.…Our Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ, feel sorrow when we choose to remain in sin, when the gift of repentance made possible through the Atonement can clean, reclaim, and sanctify our lives. When we gratefully accept and use this precious gift, we can enjoy the beauty and usefulness of our lives... "
