This morning I read Alma 29, which is an AMAZING chapter..
In Verses 9-10," I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hand of God to bring some soul unto repentance; and this is my joy. And behold, when I see many of my brethren truly penitent, and coming to the Lord their God, then is my soul filled with joy; then do I remember what the Lord has done for me, yea, even that he hath heard my prayer; yea, then do remember hi merciful arm which he extended towards me."
Yes, I'm not perfect, I don't think that I can be completely perfect at following the commandments. But I want to express my gratitude more to the Lord and His commandments.. I know that when I do, I will come to understand why they are important.
Remember who you are and what you stand for
