“Yea, blessed is this people who are willing to bear my name; for in my name shall they be called; and they are mine.” (Mosiah 26:18)
…they are mine….
As I read that verse, I thought about the husband and children I have been blessed with. They are mine and I love them with such a profound love that grows daily.
I thought about how that translates into the love my Savior has for me. He blesses my life daily through the power of His life, gospel and Atonement.
As I have struggled with growth for the past couple of years, it is evident how much He has been involved in feeding me the daily bread I have required. There have been days that He has had to lift my chin and feed me by hand. There have been days that He has left a little bit here and a little bit there for me to find and replenish my heart. There have been days that He has allowed me to share what I have to feed another.
I am astounded often times that I am that important to Him, and yet it makes sense. He bought me for a price…and He knows I am worth everything He gave for me. It is up to me to remember this, because as He said,
“I have engraven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.” (Isaiah 49:16)
I have always loved this scripture. I has shown me that I am His…He is there to lift me, strengthen me, guide me and comfort me when I am faced with the challenges that this life throws at me. Every time I have been faced with something that felt too heavy to bear, He has lifted me….I just needed to look for Him.
On days that seem eternal, heavy and overwhelming, I will remember….
I am His.
Then I will overcome.
