Hello my dear friends and family!
Happy first week of Spring from Ukraine! The country decided to celebrate with a lovely spring blizzard! So to the right is a picture of my Easter candy and coat and hat. :)
Paltava is a charming, wonderful, miraculous city! I love it here. I am learning so much.
I read a very interesting talk about faith this week. A giant myth about religion and God is that people think we must be perfect in order to be worthy of receiving blessings; however, that's not true!
I am reminded of the man that told Jesus, "Lord I believe, but help thou mine unbelief."
Heavenly Father doesn't expect us to have perfect faith- what He expects us to do is to call upon Him and ask for help.
"It matters not what sins we have committed or how deep we have sunk into that proverbial pit. What does matter is that Christ is pleading our case before the Father. That is what really matters and what should give us all renewed hope and a determination to try one more time, because He has not forgotten us. I testify the Savior will never turn away from us when we humbly seek Him in order to repent; will never consider us a lost cause; will never say 'Oh no, not you again,' will never reject us because of our failure to understand how hard it is to avoid sin. He understands us all perfectly. Repentance has the power to lift burdens and replace them with hope."
I truly know that the Lord loves each and every one of us. I also know that we cannot live fulfilling lives without Him.
HOPPY HOPPY EASTER!! I love you all!!!
