Hello I'm a convert of 1 year and 6 months of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, more commonly known as 'Mormons'. We're not scary people, a whole lot of us are really friendly, including me, so drop a message any time you want. Happy to answer questions, concerns, prayer requests, or here for venting purposes! :) I have a testimony of the this church and believe it and know it to be true. I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet, Seer and Revelator and he was a prime and great role in the Lord restoring his church here on earth. That by the power and authority of God the Book of Mormon was able to be translated by said Joseph Smith and be brought about so that we could have the fullness of the Gospel and guidance just in this piece of scripture. I know that the Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost live and are 3 separate beings, all working together for the same cause of righteousness amongst Children of God. I've made the decision to consecrate 18 months of my life for the cause of helping others come unto Christ, by helping them receive the restored Gospel, through faith in Jesus Christ and the Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. (A mission essentially). “And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.”
I’ve learned I’m never alone. And I’ve learned God reality saves me and changes me. I’ve learned that the things that I had the capacity to do before I knew Him the way I know Him have somewhere disappeared, and I am a different man than I used to be. The things that seem desirable don’t even have a voice. The things that tempted me aren’t even there. Are you following me? Do you know why? ‘Cause I have a higher desire; I’m in love. It’s not ‘cause I’m a “good Christian”. I’m in love. I know Him. And He says, “If you love Me, you’ll do the things I do.” He didn’t say, [with attitude and His arms folded] “If you love Me, you’ll do the things I do.” He said, “If you love Me, then the things I do will just flow because you love Me.” Did you get it?
I’ve found that my deepest and most heartfelt prayers are expressed through tears, and broken words that I can’t seem to form into sentences. Sometimes the heaviest things on my heart that I want to tell God, I can’t seem to get off my chest. But God is so faithful and although sometimes I have such a hard time speaking to Him, He still knows what I’m trying to say. He always listens to His children.
