I will always have a testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know it's true and I know it changes people for the better. The Book of Mormon truly is the word of God translated by the gift and power of the Holy Ghost through Joseph Smith. I know Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and that he actually saw our Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ; our Redeemer. Because of my testimony of the prophet Joseph Smith I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the Lord's true church on the earth today.
Most importantly I have a deep testimony of my Savior Jesus Christ. I am not perfect. I cannot be so without Him. He has made it possible for me to have salvation, to be free from the guilt and shame of sin. Not only that, but to be free from sin and free to become what my Father in Heaven knows I can be. He knows all that I go through, all that I have gone through and all that I will go through. He is there every step of the way. When we don't think He is there that is Satan and the world trying to confuse us. He is there desperately trying His hardest to be there for us.
One of my favorite Apostles, yes I know you shouldn't have favorites, Elder Jeffrey R Holland testified that:
"I testify that God lives, that He is our Eternal Father, that He loves each of us with a love divine. I testify that Jesus Christ is His Only Begotten Son in the flesh and, having triumphed in this world, is an heir of eternity, a joint-heir with God, and now stands on the right hand of His Father. I testify that this is Their true Church and that They sustain us in our hour of need—and always will, even if we cannot recognize that intervention. Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don't come until heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come."
They do indeed come and they bring indescribable joy.
I am starting a new blog entitled "Continuing in Joy." It will be mostly my crazy antics of me being home an of course testifying of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I would love for all of you to be a part of my life still.
