I am in 100% agreement with these thoughts and ideas. I have found them to be true in my own life. Thank you for making the effort to publish them!
Thank you - I have known this all once, and became one with the Savior, having the Holy Ghost as a constant companion, being guided in all things, and then life got in the way, and I gradually lost that closeness, not through any big things, just busyness in daily cares. How do I start over to regain that closeness? How do I let go and really put everything in His hands again? I know this is what I really need to make my life what He - and I - need for it to become again. What are the steps?
I had just finished reading the January 2015 Liahona article " Why Jesus Christ Important in my Life". Your article has really added upon what I have been reading and o understand it more!!
Thanks so much for adding to my understanding.
Thank you for writing this article. I have recently experienced what it means to begin to offer complete submission to the will of Heavenly Father and to know the power of the atonement in my life on a deeply personal level. I am learning that this process is a daily commitment to being worthy to have the companionship of the Holy Ghost and acting on impressions. My journey began as I participated in the Addiction Recovery Program for Family and Spouses offered by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know the power of that program to bring people to Christ through repentance and complete submission of our will to His. Once again I thank you for this article that reminded me of my own journey.
Thank you for sharing your understanding of the Atonement. This is such an important thing to know.
What a powerful idea..."So she can learn about the atonement." Perhaps this is why all difficult experiences occur! I was widowed at an early age and after a difficult 20 year second marriage, am now a divorced middle-ager trying to figure out how to get through my later years on my own and with no retirement. I have known through it all that the difficulties have caused a great deal of growth, but I never considered that might have been their main purpose! I do know and acknowledge that leaning on the Lord has been the only thing that has saved me. My challenge now is to lay it all on the altar and depend on and trust Him even more. Thank you for this insightful reminder.
This article helped the concept of the atonement become much more clear in my mind! Thank you so much!
Very profound! I needed the reminder to be willing to let my "self" or "natural man" (and all I possess) go, in order to be "one" with God!
Profound! Anne, your insights are so inspiring. Jane's experience surely is humbling. We NEED the Atonement daily. Thanks so much for your instruction.
