I Love The Reminder That God Doesn’t Expect Us To Be Flawless.

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

In our church today, we talked about a talk given by Brother Bradley Wilcox entitled ” Worthiness Is Not Flawlessness.”

I loved so many aspects of this talk, but overall, I was grateful for the reminder that God doesn’t expect PERFECTION.

After-all, God knew that all of us would fall short, and that is why He sent us the Savior, the one perfect person that ever lived.

And yet, when we make mistakes and mess up, it’s so easy for us to get down on ourselves and feel “unworthy.”

That is not what God wants us to feel.

God wants us to try every day to be a bit better, but if we fall short, we haven’t lost all of our chances.

I love this quote from Brother Wilcox’s talk that says ” Some mistakenly receive the message that they are not worthy to participate fully in the gospel because they are not completely free of bad habits. God’s message is that worthiness is not flawlessness.”

What a wonderful reminder to keep trying, have the goal and mindset to do your best! And even when we fall short, remember that “worthiness is not flawlessness.”

Also, I write this for you and for myself, remember to forgive yourself when you mess up, and move on.

Dwelling in our past mistakes and issues, never truly helps us move forward.

I hope you know how much Heavenly Father loves us. He always has and He always will.

Sunday Thoughts: Choosing to Follow Christ.

As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I love beautifully quotes.

This particular quote is a strong reminder to me to choose our Savior Jesus Christ everyday.

Disclosure: this blog contains affiliate links. This means that I get commission from any link you click on…but of course it’s at no cost to you!

This quote makes me think, how has Christ changed me?

To answer that question, the Savior has changed my life in EVERY single aspect of my life.

The Savior has changed me through how I see the world.

Everyday, as I strive to become closer to Christ, my perspective changes.

Overall, the Savior is the great reminder, that compassion and love conquers all.

Not only the compassion and love we feel from the Savior, but the compassion and love we give to others.

Life is hard, and full of struggles. When we are in times of sorrow, we can lean on our Savior for support. We can feel peace through our Savior Jesus Christ.

Even more, we learn the true cure for healing is through serving others. Through showing compassion and love to others.

When we step outside of our situations, and we lift others. Not only are we brining others peace and happiness. We are feeling our lives with Christ-like love, that is beyond any worldly love.

I am so grateful for Savior and for the power He brings into our lives. I am so thankful that we can be changed through Christ.

I pray that we can all reach for our Savior in all aspects of our lives. He will heal us and uplift us, and encourage us to do the same for others.

Sunday Thoughts: Faith Over Fear, Let’s Choose Faith…

This topic of faith over fear is important.


Because faith over fear is a day-to-day, even minute-to-minute challenge.

In today’s world, where news and information is spread so very fast, fear can trap us and make us feel hopeless.

The definition of fear is “an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.”

There you have it….FEAR is an unpleasant emotion. Fear is an emotion that if it is felt too long, can not only be depressing, but it can be crippling to live with.

Now don’t get me wrong, fear is an emotion in human beings that is necessary to ward off danger. However, if FEAR never leaves us and we are constantly battling a life living in FEAR, that’s unsustainable, and that’s when we need to look to FAITH.

The definition of Faith is “complete trust or confidence in someone or something.”

How comforting to go from FEAR and an unpleasant emotion to having “complete trust or confidence. ”

Faith as we know is not CERTAIN, but it’s having the mind shift to know that things can and will get better.

If we had to choose between feeling FEAR or having the mind shift to have FAITH, which one would you choose?

I can imagine most people would logically say Faith.

So why is it so very difficult to have FAITH when times are hard?

Well, because FEAR seems more logical, and to be quite honest, as human beings I believe our minds have been trained to feel FEAR far more than it should.

When in reality, if our minds had a stronger sense of Faith, think how much more light and positivity we would experience in life.

There are so many different stories and accounts in the scriptures where FAITH has been a key factor in guiding people through trials.

One of my favorite examples of faith is in the Bible, Matthew 9, where the woman whom had an issue of blood for twelve years had faith that if she touched the Saviors garment, she would be made hole.

Matthew 9:22 “But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; they faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.”

I feel that this particular scripture is empowering and convincing on why having Faith over Fear is crucial.

This poor woman had suffered for twelve years with an issue of blood. Can you imagine what that must have been like for her? Can you imagine the bouts of fear and hopelessness she was sure to experience with this?

And yet, even after twelve years of dealing with this trail and struggle, she choose FAITH over FEAR and it made her whole.

I know FAITH will not always guarantee that the ending will turn out like you may desire.

But isn’t it better to have hope and faith in the future, than to live with fear and anxiety?

Isn’t it better to feel light and peace, than to feel darkness and stress?

So how do we create that shift from FEAR to FAITH?

Practice, practice, and practice.

And may I add, a lot of praying.

Prayer provides a pathway to Faith. It reminds us that we have a guide, and a source that can conquer all the fears that come in this world. Prayer is our communication with God, and with him on our side, He can help us to choose Faith over Fear every time.

And now, I must be open, and admit, that I write this post as a reminder to MYSELF, that FAITH over FEAR is key to living a happier and more fulfilling life.

Faith helps us to feel whole.

Faith brings hope.

Faith brings peace.

Who wouldn’t want to experience wholeness, hope and peace?

My mind is at a constant battle of Faith over Fear.

And you know what, today Faith is winning.

I hope I can say the same for tomorrow and the next day.

However, it’s a day-to-day challenge, and I strive my best to remember that Faith is light, and light brings peace.

Yes we have much going on in the world to bring FEAR into our lives, however, we also have much going on in the world to bring Faith.

And I choose Faith.

I know Faith can be by your side as well, if you just let it in.

Happy Sunday.
