What was I thinking?

Have you ever asked yourself, “What was I thinking?”

Recently, I’ve pondered a suggestion from Elder Holland to avoid this situation:

Most people in trouble end up crying, “What was I thinking?” Well, whatever they were thinking, they weren’t thinking of Christ. Yet, as members of His Church, we pledge every Sunday of our lives to take upon ourselves His name and promise to “always remember him.”So let us work a little harder at remembering Him—especially that He has “borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows …, [that] he was bruised for our iniquities … ; and with his stripes we are healed.”Surely it would guide our actions in a dramatic way if we remembered that every time we transgress, we hurt not only those we love, but we also hurt Him, who so dearly loves us. 

It would surely guide my actions in a dramatic way if I remembered Christ more often. I’d be less likely to sin. And when I still do I’d be more willing to repent and grow!

I’m overwhelmed by Christ’s mercy.

I can think of Christ even when I reject Him through sin. He wants me to think of Him even in the moments where I cause Him the most grief. In this regard, Elder Holland went on to say:

But if we do sin, however serious that sin may be, we can be rescued by that same majestic figure, He who bears the only name given under heaven whereby any man or woman can be saved. When confronting our transgressions and our souls are harrowed up with true pain, may we all echo the repentant Alma and utter his life-changing cry: “O Jesus, thou Son of God, have mercy on me.”

My HWN recently has been working a little harder at remembering Him.

p.s. Since it’s been a couple of weeks since my last post, I’ve got several other things to share!

On Saturday the 22nd I went with Heston, McKay and Lisa to Spring City for an authentic German lunch! :) Check out my picture album here.

My mom was in town most of this last week :) Here are some pictures from our adventures.

Paul and I released two songs produced by PZ Records LLC with my cousin Shawn :) Let me know what you think!
