sanctification

That horrible moment when you realize you’re not enough.

I have been living far below my potential. I have emotionally closed myself off from my best friends. I haven’t been reading my scriptures diligently nor doing the things that I know I need to do to prepare for my mission. I’m slacking in my classes. I go to bed every night knowing that I didn’t do all that I could have, or should have. Where does the time go???

Last night while praying, I felt the comfort and peace that I’ve been missing for so long. Moroni 8:26 says, “Because of meekness and lowliness of heart cometh the visitation of the Holy Ghost, which Comforter filleth with hope and perfect love.” That’s what it means to be sanctified—to be filled with the love of Jesus Christ. It cleanses us by purging our desires and replacing them with God’s will. Once you’ve given your life to God, you can’t turn back. It’s all or nothing. It’s a painful—yet healing—process. To be wholly aligned to His will is complete conversion.


On my own I’m not enough. But because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, I’m not on my own.
