Cease fighting against God..

Yes everyone, I am back to blogging! :) I wanted to share this video! It touched my heart and I hope that it does yours as well.
We can all learn a powerful lesson from this video and I know that we can all relate to it!
Elder Patrick Kearon of the Seventy says (in the video), ".. I disregarded what I knew to be right, I ignored what my parents repeatedly told me, I had been both lazy and rebellious and I paid a price for it. Disregarding what we know to be right...always brings undesirable and spiritually damaging consequences. We find healing and relief only when we bring ourselves to the feet of the create physician Jesus Christ. We must cease fighting against God and instead give our whole hearts to him, holding nothing back then he can heal us, then he can cleanse us from the vemonise sting of sin."
How many times do I disregard what I know to be right? I know that I have done this, we all do from time to time. I know that I can be lazy at times, and a lil rebellious. I don't want to be like that anymore, I don't want to fight against God anymore. I know that He can heal us, but we have to let Him, I know that when I listen to the things He tells me to do, and to do the best I can he will help me. No matter how much we get caught in that trap with sin, He will always help us find a way out. Because He loves us! He loves Me! I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way we can find true happiness. That's when we are truly free.
Remember who you are and what you stand for!
