How can the Atonement of Jesus Christ work for me if I act like I’m perfect and like I don’t need His Help?
I’m imperfectly flawed and need the do-overs of repentance and the strength of Christ’s Atonement. I don’t know how Christ works His miracle of helping me, all I know is that it’s true because the miracle of the Atonement of Christ has worked in my life.
The heavy burden of weakness is hard to carry. I can try my best to overcome faults on my own (grit my teeth and not give up) but what happens when I relapse and have to do it all over again? :(
The Atonement of Jesus Christ
In my weak state,
I already feel like crap for giving in
and the idea of starting -again-
and working hard -again- and
-on my own- seems hard.
The unkind voice in my mind says
“Frankly, it’s easier to just give up
and live with defeat.”
But then I remember the kindness
in Christ’s words:
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
And I turn to Him to help me
And give me peace.
