I am so immensely grateful for the knowledge of the atonement of Jesus Christ. I am grateful that I have been given this knowledge, because without it, I am sure I would be lost. After having made so many mistakes (and am bound to make many more) I am comforted to know that because of my elder brother, I can be forgiven of my sins.
But it goes so much further than that. Not only can I be forgiven of my shortcomings each and every day; but I am also continuously lifted up, protected, comforted, and at peace. The succoring power of the atonement is an incredible blessing. Any negative feelings of doubt, inadequacy, pride, hopelessness, and solitude can be disposed of when I remember Christ and his divine light and love.
I am infinitely thankful for Christ's Atonement. Without it, I don't know where I would be today. I am grateful for the unconditional love that God and Jesus Christ have for me and for the world. I am grateful for God's unfailing patience and understanding.
This life is a challenging journey. But it's definitely an enjoyable journey, too. It's been made enjoyable because of the knowledge that I have of my Savior and Heavenly Father. This journey is full of hope and happiness because I know that I am a daughter of a loving God. I know that I am of infinite worth. I know that I have incomprehensible potential. I know that there is something indescribably beautiful and glorious after this life.
And when I look at it this way - when I remember the most important things - everything else is put into perspective and nothing else matters. The moment I remember this knowledge and hope of the atonement and the great plan, that's the moment when I can clearly see God and the Savior finely woven into all of the details of my wonderful life.
Goodness. God grants me so much more than I deserve. I could never be humbled enough; I could never be grateful enough. I love Him and my Savior so much.
I hope that everyone is having the loveliest Easter Sunday today. The sun is shining, the skies are blue, I've got my new Easter dress on, and I get to spend the day with the people I love the most. Not to mention, I have God and The Savior standing right by my side.
I simply couldn't ask for more. :)
