Choosing Misery Over Jesus

I DID IT! Yesterday, I finished the Book of Mormon before years end, like I pushed myself to do just 2 weeks ago! What a ride—

My soul really needed that push.
…picking it up every free second that I had as it REVIVED and pumped LIFE & power into my soul

I’m desperately grateful for it to reel me back to what I need to be focusing on & working towards. 
How many times did I read about endless torment, endless misery, endless damnation, endless darkness & suffering…that we choose for ourselves by our actions (or lack of),
…over what…? Jesus????
Over an all merciful, all-loving, all powerful, all-forgiving, perfect Being Who stands with ‘open arms to receive us’ & give us the greater things??

No, thank yewwww!
I wanna say I sacrificed to make this happen but like…was it though?
Was it that hard to feed my soul
to give my spirit living inside of them the self-care (no no, spirit-care) it desperately needs to thrive?!
Was it that hard to come closer to the most powerful Being to ever exist & become more intimate with the creator of everything’s EXISTENCE?!

Can we think of anything more important than ENDLESS LIFE & ETERNAL BLISS?!Let’s just all promise to give God the time He deserves, k?!? Let’s give this a real go at it! Every day.
Let’s make taking care of us & our SOUL a priority. Make God a priority. 
Because WOW WHAT AN INDESCRIBABLE DIFFERENCE I DON’T DARE EVER LIVE WITHOUT AGAIN. ‘Cuz this isn’t wishful thinking…. it actually IS real.  All of it. 
And nothing is worth giving up our forever happiness.

  1. Al here is my testimony, maybe it will help you. I have read your books three times. We bought a whole case from Cedar Fort to give away. I have read the Book of Mormon 116 times cover to cover. I am 85 years young. Clarence Anderson Pea soup: I write western/science fiction short stories.
