Not Alone!

     Do you feel hurt, misunderstood, rejected, unwanted, ugly, depressed, stressed, peer pressure, discouraged? Are you addicted to something? Are you sick of trying? Is your load or burden to much to carry? Are you scared of something? Do you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders? Feel like there's no way out? Do you feel Alone??
     Most of the time people incorporate the Atonement of Jesus Christ with just sin... Lets see what the scriptures tell us.. (Alma 7: 11-12) "11. And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people.
 12. And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities."

     How many times did sin appear?
The savior knows what it feels like to have to go through things such as getting ditched by friends to losing a family member... He suffered pains, afflictions, temptations, sicknesses, infirmities, misfortunes, stresses, fears, etc... of "Every Kind" .. So does He know what your going through every second of every minute of every hour of every day? I would say He knows more about what we have to suffer through than we do!! Go to Him with everything, no matter how small or large the issue seems to be... And a lot of the time when others see the problems we face they think it's something small and easy to handle, but to you that problem is real!
     Christ can heal and fix you. He loves lost and broken things! Anything that seems unfair about life can and will be made right through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Amen

  1. Elder Campbell,

    I was blessed by your message & it touched me. One can not help to see how sensitive you are to the Lord and His Spirit. I would like to encourage you to always have that sensitive ear. As I read your blog, the Lord impress upon my spirit the following scripture. "Appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified." Isaiah 61:3

    Keep up the good work Elder!
