Thoughts on life and Faith

Here I am an average girl with hopes and dream like any other, a child of God put here on this earth to do what?

About a year ago I wrote this in my blog:

"Who is this person that lives in my skin?

At times I feel like I see glimpse of who I really am. The true depth and magnitude of my soul astonishes me.

Inside I am really beautiful. Inside I’m a poet, a painter, a gardener, angelic soprano; I’m a field of daisies in a mountain valley, a glistening waterfall, a Degas ballerina.

And all this is screaming out “WHAY CAN'T I BE ME?” Pure, clear, and beautiful.

This is where my faults come in. My weaknesses, my DOWNFALL! You might say my humanity. Oh that I could be a goddess!

Oh that I might be the WOMAN I dream of being! She is wonderful! I know I can be her, I know it. I know it’s possible because of Jesus Christ. With his help I can become “a new creature”. This woman is full of grace and loving kindness, and most of all she has charity.

In truth is... it’s really me deep down inside the me I’ve only forgotten. That’s who God wants me to be… so I know he can help me and will help me, if I let him.

This is somewhat of a Nephi moment I suppose. So to quote him:
“Why should I yield to sin, because of my flesh? Yea, why should I give way to temptations, that the evil one have place in my heart to destroy my peace and afflict my soul?”
“And when I desire to rejoice, my heart groaneth because of my sins; nevertheless, I know in whom I have trusted”
I have a hope and I cling to that hope, I work for that hope, I live for that hope."
