Love Him.

God understands that we get there not in an instant but by taking one step at a time.

I do not believe in a God who would set up rules and commandments only to wait for us to fail so He could punish us.” – President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

This quote is in reference from Uchtdorf sharing gospel truth on how God wants us to become like Him. We are all sent to this life on Earth to prove ourselves that we can live with our Father in Heaven again. Which ever God you believe in, just know that, you believe in a Spirit/Energy that’s more powerful and has a higher knowledge than all of us. He desires that we inherit all that He has. And the only way for us to return to His presence is by choosing to Love Him always. We may not become perfect over night but we will day by day.

The impression that came to mind when I heard those lines spoken by Uchtdorf were that ‘He understands, Don’t look so quickly for what your punishment will be. He understands it’ll take time. He knows you perfectly.’ Which to me speaks to me deeply because I have often found myself making a simple mistake and have thought numerous times what my punishment will be. That’s not how someone should look towards God. He loves all of us individually and doesn’t seek to punish us after every wrongful step.

Instead think of the Love that He continues to give you daily. The support He sends with every righteous desire you may have. Continue to be faithful in Christ because of {{ His Atonement }} we can all erase the mistakes made and keep trying in your efforts to become an exceptional child of God.
