“Our Savior has the power to cleanse and heal you.” #SisterReeves #LDSConf“
I have witnessed the powerful changes that come to those who put their faith in the Lord’s plan. Sister Reeves taught a wonderful lesson this morning on the healing and cleansing power that comes from the Lord Jesus Christ. She spoke of those struggling with the challenge of sin, and she specifically addressed the of pornography and other moral storms that are harming the family and home.
There is hope. There is light. There is a plan to overcome. It’s not easy, but I know that lasting change is available in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. God doesn’t care as much about what we’ve done wrong as He cares that we want to be better. I have experienced this healing and cleansing in my own life. And it’s by no means a “once-and-done.” Perfection has evaded me 😉 and so I have regular need to repent and ask the Lord’s help to do and be more than I am.
As a parent, I’ve learned more about our Heavenly Father’s unconditional love for us, His children. No matter what trouble my own children may get into or cause, I love them. I want them to be happy, and I have a responsibility to teach them correct principles and enable them to “govern themselves.” I will do, as any parent would, anything to help them when they struggle or need comfort. That’s what the Lord does for us. He is a God of as many chances as we need to overcome our imperfections. For that, I’m grateful.
