with Easter getting so close, i wanted to focus this day's "you are beautiful linkup" on Christ and the gift he has given us.
i believe that we are all destined to be queens and kings. we are destined to be Gods. pslams 82:6 reads "I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High." Romans 18: 16-17 reads "and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him." we are so clearly destined to be Gods. let me explain in simple terms.
the past week and yesterday i did two things that were extremely hard and things i didn't think i was going to be able to do. i was terrified of both trials. but this is the time to remember Christ's death. He died on the cross for us and was resurrected for us. He died on the cross and has felt every single pain that you could possibly feel in mortal life. He did that so that we would have the Atonement, the ability to give him our worries, our woes, our struggles.
each parent wants their children to become better than they are. to have a good life. so why would God be any different? we can't get any better than God, but he would want us to grow up to be just as good as Him, or exactly like him, ie, Godhood, because we are His children.
i have used the Atonement countless times in life and would be nothing without it. the Atonement is the reason why i was able to do those hard things, why i am strong, why i am trying to be fearless, why i am trying to be brave. we were put on the earth to become like Him. that means going through trials and also experiencing joy. but i have always thought that in order to experience joy, you need to experience pain. that is how you grow. ammiright? going through trials is horrible, but luckily, i have God with me always to comfort me and to hand over my trials to, because He died on the cross for me.
i am so grateful for my faith and want you all to remember who you are. you don't have to believe me, please, believe whatever you want. disagree with me if you choose, i don't mind. you should believe what you believe. but i just hope that you remember this week that one of the reasons why you are beautiful is because you are His child. and you are destined to be a God.
i sooo want to hear about what makes you feel beautiful! please linkup!
