GET OVER YOURSELF

Get over yourself.
.
O wretched man that I am! 2 Nephi 4:27
.
I would like to believe that my soul is similar to Nephi. I love the Lord, and my soul delighteth in the scriptures and all things of the Lord.
.
The Lord has been good to me, and I’m not alone in the many good things He has given His children.
.
Then there is a wretched side of me. As much as I study, as much as I pray, as much as I try to do good things, I sorrow because of my flesh, and like Nephi, my soul grieveth because of my iniquities.
.
How many times have we just had a phenomenal scripture study or offered the best prayer of our lives to the Lord, to only have our minds revert us back to our sins?
.
How many of us continue to drive forward after that happens? How many of us ’throw in the towel’ and give up, saying, ”I tried, but God isn’t there and doesn’t answer my prayers.”
.
STOP!
.
GET OVER YOURSELF!
.
KNOW IN WHOM YOU HAVE TRUSTED!
.
God is your support, and he leads you through your afflictions. He is preserving you for His purpose, not yours! If you’re reading this and have made mistakes, GOOD! The Lord hasn’t given up on you because you’re still alive.
.
If you’re still alive, you have purpose in the Lord! He will fill you with love. He hears your cries.
.
How do you pray to God? Do you pray with all energy of your heart? Do you kneel down to your Heavenly Father and tell Him how strong you’re going to be, and do you present your plan to accomplish His goals?
.
Stop worrying about your ”life goals.” Start living the goals your Father in Heaven has laid out for you. How can you find these goals? You can turn to the scriptures, the prophets, and, most importantly, PRAYER! He will give you personal revelation to the goals He needs you to accomplish during your mortal probation.
.
Learn to hear Him!
.
Nephi 4:15-35 teaches you how to get over yourself and how to pray to the Lord.
