He WANTS to Bless Us

Moroni 10:32

Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all
ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you,
that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.

John 8:29

And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do
always those things that please him.
D&C 130:20-21

There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this
world, upon which all blessings are predicated—
And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law
upon which it is predicated.

3 Nephi 5:13

Behold, I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.I have been called of him to declare his word among his people, that they might have everlasting life.
These are some of my favorite scriptures that I have been studying the last week. In Moroni, he tells us that as we love God with all of our heart might mind and strength then is His grace sufficient for us. And thru that grace, we may be perfect in Christ. What an amazing scripture! It doesn’t seem to me that the Lord is asking for a lukewarm effort. It isn’t enough to just go to church. It isn’t enough to just do your home-teaching. It isn’t even enough to just go on a mission. It is a total commitment. It’s all-in. The Lord wants our whole heart. And it is really difficult. But that’s why we are SO blessed with grace. Through His grace, we may be perfected as we give it everything we have got.
I love this scripture in John. How much easier would our lives be if we did always the things that pleased the Father- to put Him first and put the world behind us -to honor and keep his commandments with a sincere heart. That becomes a lot easier when we recognize the eternal principal behind commandments. God gives us commandments because He WANTS to bless us. He really sincerely wants to bless us! He is just waiting to do it because He needs us to be obedient first. Like D&C says, we will always receive blessings from God as we obey his commandments. When we disobey, we receive punishment. However, those blessings and punishments don’t always come when we expect them too. Sometimes there is a delay. That’s why it is so important that we ALWAYS do the things that please the Father. Then He will constantly be blessing us.
This last scripture in 3 Nephi has become one of my all-time favorites. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ and there is no greater calling than to declare his word among his people. There is no greater joy.
The past two weeks, we have had a lot of multi-zone conferences. Hearing this message again and again really inspired me. These are the things that really stuck out to me and I hope to implement them into my life. I also attached a link to a Mormon message that I really like titled Strive. I hope you all will have time to watch it! The Lord needs and wants more passionate disciples. And he wants us to know that we are never alone in our journey here on earth. As we continue to strive to be his disciples, he is always there to lift us up when we fall…to ease our yoke and lighten our burdens. I know that’s true.
That’s all for this week! Hope life is treating all of you well! I really appreciate all of your support and love! I don’t always get back to each of you every week and I’m sorry for that! I’m trying my best! There just isn’t enough time in the day!
