This is a post by Rachelle Ormond. Her message is one all of us need to remember!
I would love to share a thought on one of my favorite scriptures, Doctrine and Covenants 6:34-37. While one of my sisters was on her mission, I was going through a difficult trial in my life at the time and I remember asking for her advice at the time. She sent me this scripture. I love the reminder in verse 36 especially, to doubt not and to fear not.
God does not condemn us, but asks us to go forward, repentant, and sin no more. I know that as we strive to keep the covenants we have made with Him, including keeping the commandments, that even when we mess up there is a way back. This way back is through our Savior, Jesus Christ, who suffered all for us so that we might not suffer if we would repent (D&C 19:16). I know our Father in Heaven lives and so does our Savior. I am so grateful to live at a time with the restored Gospel on the earth and to be a member of it. As one of his imperfect children, I am grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who gives us second chances again and again.
Thanks for giving me the chance to share my testimony in a way I never really thought of sharing before.
