I love choices because we can show God how much we love and care about Him.
With everything in life, there is OPPOSITION! Sooo.. We can also make choices that lead us away from God. This happens ALOT because we are not perfect. Sometimes, the world seems so appealing.
But, YOU GOT TO PRESS FORWARD. Don't give up and remember what the Lord has promised you if you do keep the commandments. EVERLASTING HAPPINESS can be yours. The plan is perfect and God loves you. His main purpose is "to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man." YOU ARE SO IMPORTANT TO HIM. Make Heavenly Father proud and be sincere. It's worth it. EVERY EFFORT towards the Father is worth it.
I remember hanging out with a bunch of new friends and being so excited! But, they weren't planning an appropriate game.. And I just felt uncomfortable! I LEFT. I walked outside and sat in the cold. (It was freezing, let me tell you. Haha.) Yeah, it was weird and I think they were all confused. But, it was worth it. BY SMALL AND SIMPLE MEANS are great things brought to pass.
My best friend told me that she walked out of a movie because it wasn't appropriate.. It may sound simple. BUT, IT'S NOT. It takes so much courage to stand up. It takes a lot of courage to leave when everyone is watching you and wondering why you left. I applaud her for being virtuous and choosing the right.
I have never regretted following Jesus Christ and I know you won't either. Recommit to God and do your best. You got this!
