Buenas Tardes :)
Oh well asi es la vida. Good thing God gives us so many opportunities to become better! Like the atonement! I love the atonement. I am SO GRATEFUL FOR THE ATONEMENT!
I remember a quote that David A. Bednar said, I can't remember exactly what it said but I remember it saying, we always seem to think that repentance is for sinners. But really it's for all of us everyday to help us overcome things and become better. Those are definitely not the exact words haha but I am just so grateful for that because it is true. We often think that repenting (or changing and asking for forgiveness) is only for people who do AWEFUL things. But that isn't true at all, it covers EVERYONE! I am so grateful for that and for my Savior. I know that every day that I fall short on something and I don't become as great as I want to be, or as I could be, because of the atonement I don't have to stay the same lazy me. I can wake up the next day and just decide to change and ask Heavenly Father for His help to do it! An example of that I just thought of was how we wake up every morning at 6:30 and it has been REALLY hard lately. Like so hard that right at 6:30 not any second before, I would roll off the bed and kneel and pray and often fall asleep on my face on accident and then wake up and have to like pull out my hair to stay awake. But these past few days I have popped up right at 6:20 and 6:25, got on my knees said my prayers, jumped up and got going! I HAD NO IDEA WHAT HAPPENED! NOTHING CHANGED. But maybe my prayers got more sincere for help? Maybe I really pleaded with Heavenly Father, maybe I had REAL intent, and He felt the need to help me... AND BOY DID I THANK HIM! It really has been one of the most miraculous things I have experienced on my mission!
