How to live : The Savior and Righteousness

It's a silly thing to think we have any control over anything but ourselves.

I want to talk a little bit about the Heavenly Father and the Savior. Believe me when I say it is the Father that we turn to for comfort. I hope we remember that. Heavenly Father is the one that deserves our undivided attention, with reverence and admiration to our Savior Jesus who is the advocate to the Father.

I love the Lord God. I know He's there. I know He has the plan of my life laid out. I do stray from it. But I try my hardest to live and walk that line. I know that eternity works in a way that God is constantly aware of our state. I know in the silent moments when we are by ourselves He is there. When we are down He is especially there. Surely the enabling power of the Atonement is there.

When we are kicked to the ground. There is a scripture I like to think of. It's one of my favorites.

And the world, because of their iniquity, shall judge him to be a thing of naught; wherefore they scourge him, and he suffereth it; and they smite him, and he suffereth it. Yea, they aspit upon him, and he suffereth it, because of his loving bkindness and his clong-suffering towards the children of men. 1 Nephi 19:6

I sometimes put that in my situation and add to it because the Lord knows how everyone feels. They break his heart and he suffereth it, they forget about him and he suffereth it, they don't acknowledge him and he suffereth it, they say they'll do something and they don't and he suffereth it, they make him feel left out and he suffereth it. 

The Lord knows everything and feels everything. 

I love that scripture because it helps me remember that He suffered all and did it for me and all my pains. My hope is that it will bring you the same comfort.


Righteousness is the sole way to live life. There is never happiness in doing things opposite to light. What I have noticed in my life is those things that tempt us to do wrong, use our bodies in ways that our not congruent with how God intended our bodies to be used. Drugs, Coffee, Pornography all misuse the body, even to the point to be addicted. It's interesting to me that righteousness allows the body to be free and work seamlessly with life, hence truly making us free.

Enough with biology. Have you felt the Spirit? It's real and the point to this whole thing. The conduit by which Heavenly Father reveals things to us is the Spirit. He is temperamental...well stingy...well stingy...He doesn't stand up for things He will be #gone before you can realize it. 

You never know what you have til its gone. 

A lesson I have learned all too frequently. It also, to me, reminds me of the several times that I have felt the Spirit with me and then felt Him depart when I decide to be a **moronic. 

Anyway. I have several times in my life literally felt the good Spirit that I had built up, drain from me. Which was bad. But to have the Spirit back was great. Regain the Spirits embrace and be worthy for it was nothing short of great. It's like the color was back into the world. You can still operate without the gift of the Holy Ghost, but why would you want that? 

I think I've said my piece. Righteous is key on how to live. I should be doing homework. But I just needed to take a break and let my thought flow. 

**FUNNYYY --- Haven't done one of these in a while. Probably ruins the spirit of this post, ironic? Anyway, me and my brother use to use adverbs/adjectives as nouns. I loved it. Still do it. Still funny to me...Think about it. You are a big stink. Even verbs as nouns is hilarious. Stop being a dang turd flick. That was one of my favorites. Ya dern butt slap. Most of them had to do with poop and butts...we were boys. We thought it was funny. Get off me about it. Ya rude. Gotta do the emphasis right...hit me up about it sometime. ----
