mercy


{via}

if i took one message away from conference,
it was that christ's grace is sufficient.

oh, how deeply grateful i am
for a savior who died for you & me.

i try to be good, but i am so imperfect.
i become discouraged when i feel others
expect things from me that i can not seem to give.
i am impatient with myself when
i have natural feelings that fall
{ever so} short of righteousness.

but i know that through christ's atonement,
so long i surrender my heart & will to him...
his grace is sufficient to help me progress now,
and eventually perfect my earthly shortcomings
in the life to come.

my favorite talk at conference?
[i've watched it over & over]
*it's this one:



it completely speaks to the very innermost aching in my heart.

i'm so humbled.
his grace is sufficient.

for "surely the thing god enjoys most about being god,
is the thrill of being merciful." ♥

I love Elder Holland.

I went to comment on your "heart falls apart" post and it's not there...it was so sweet, but sad at the same time. Sorry about your greatest challenge, but I agree that your tender heart is one of your greatest strengths.
