Ready to have your mind blown away with doctrine?
This scripture has meant a lot to me lately. I've grown in my understanding of the depth of the love that God has for me and how much he wants me to feel that everyday. I've learned that we as people create expectations of how good or successful we should be. But rarely do we actually meet these expectations. The result is stress, discontent and mental turmoil. But that is not the way that God wants us to live our lives. We can be happy even though our lives aren't perfect. "And ye cannot bear all things now" You can't do everything right now. You're no perfect right now. You're not going to achieve every goal and expectation right now. But its ok. "Nevertheless, be of good cheer" God wants us to be happy. There is always something to be happy about and have joy in beholding. "For I will lead you along" God will make you become what he wants you to become if you trust in him. Don't willfully take on stress and anguish and put off joy and gratitude in an effort to be "that great person you think you should be" or to be "the best at something". Trust in the Lord. That he will make you become exactly who he wants you to be. "The kingdom is yours and the blessings thereof are yours, and the riches of eternity are your" Those who follow this counsel have a bright future. The Kingdom of God and eternal life.
There you go. Use your knowledge of this doctrine wisely.
