As always begin with Studies. So this week for my studies I have been doing Book of Mormon, Preach My Gospel and New Testament, which have really been helping me alot to learn many things, and as I study I have been trying to have questions in mind as to what it is that I want to learn about. So I did that and gained some good valuable insights.
As I was studying Preach My Gospel this week I looked at alot of the Lessons and Highlighted some important things in the Preach my Gospel and learnt alot from it. I was studying the Gospel of Christ and the Plan of Salvation and the thing that stood out most to me was that in alot of the sentences it says "can", or "may" which shows a commitment on our sides for sure to live those ways which I had found interesting, I also Continued some of my study on Figuring out how to become perfect.
There was an article in July Enisgn, Being Perfect in Christ and it taught me alot abot how perfection is time. Perfection comes in time, and I want to be the best I can be, I don't want to have weaknesses, but it taught me that nothing is perfect if you spend your whole life waiting for the perfect of anything you will just be sad, so I strive to become perfect and make progress but I am learning to not get mad or depressed when I realize I am not perfect.
This Week I studied the Christlike Attribute of Obedience. So as always, I began by first defining what obedience is and obedience is willingly doing something that is aligned with the Lord's work. In Doctrine and Covenants 130:20-21 It talks about there is a law irrevocably decreed in Heaven before the foundation of this world upon which all blessings are predecated, and when we obtain any blessing from God it is by Obedience to that law by which it is predecated." So that taught me just how important Obedience is because it is the foundation of blessings however it is also the Way we show LOVE to the Lord by being obedient to his commandments. I don't have too much time to share additional insights I will write more next week but this week was amazing
Well that was my week, I will write my letter home earlier next week, so I can record more
Love you all
Live Long and Prosper
