So, I’m finally trying to get caught up and enter my random thoughts and stuff I write down on scraps of paper into my journal.
I came across this entry, and kind of wanted to share. Enjoy!
August 26, 2012:
Last week in my singles ward sacrament meeting, the man speaker talked about how when we partake of the sacrament, we should try to really think about Christ’s body and blood, as He atoned for our sins.
He said how Christ took each of us to the garden of Gethsemane with Him, including me. I thought that was such an interesting way of putting it. I pictured myself walking in the garden, hand in hand with Christ.
Not only did Christ suffer for my sins, but He felt all my sadness, my heartaches, my loneliness, depression, hopelessness, my feelings of wanting to die. Christ suffered for me. Christ suffered for all of us.
Our brother, Jesus Christ, did that because he loves us! And He did it so we would have a way to return to our Heavenly Father one day. It makes me feel sad and guilty that he did all that for me, but, I am also so grateful because it gives me the chance to be clean and pure again.
As the sacrament was being blessed and passed today, I noticed a young girl sitting on her dad’s lap, talking kind of loudly about something. Her father whispered in her ear, “Shh, think about Jesus.” The little girl asked, “Where is Jesus? Is he talking?” (I think that was when one of the young men was blessing the sacrament.) 🙂 🙂
When I heard her say that, I just started crying. It was the sweetest thing ever. Her sweet little voice, her innocence, and eagerness to learn made me realize why the scriptures teach us to be as little children.
