Something Ive really been focusing on this week is the mistakes we have made and continue to make, and the way we see these two things. We have an investigator who{s wife passed away about 2 years ago from cancer, and from a bad surgery that occurred. This man has such a deep sadness of confusion and anger. And not just because the loss of his wife but because of the doctor who made this mistake. He puts all of the blame on this doctor and on himself. He feels it is impossible to rid himself of this guilt. He couldnt be any more mistaken. God loves us. He is our Heavenly Father, He does not want us to suffer. He wants us to have joy, and we can recieve that joy through forgiveness.

"We must recognize that we are all imperfect—that we are beggars before God. Haven’t we all, at one time or another, meeklyapproached the mercy seat and pleaded for grace? Haven’t we wished with all the energy of our souls for mercy—to beforgiven for the mistakes we have made and the sins we have committed?

Because we all depend on the mercy of God, how can we deny to others any measure of the grace we so desperately desirefor ourselves? My beloved brothers and sisters, should we not forgive as we wish to be forgiven?" -Pres. Uchtdorf

We have all made mistakes, and we continue to do so. But when we get on our knees and plea for this sweet gift of mercy from our Father in Heaven we will grow to comprehend the great importance the Atonement of Jesus Christ more and more in our daily lives. I know without any doubt in my mind that the Atonement is real, that God forgives and He loves. And I know that this is the only way we can progress. Dont listen to the Prince of suffering, Satan, he wants you to fall while our Heavenly Father wants us to fly.

Recognize your imperfections but dont be immobilized by them.

Luke 15:7 I say unto you, that like wise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and ninejust persons, which need no repentance.
