“I Am a Child of God”
I just love that simple phrase. It is so comforting. I often think how everyone is a child of God and what that means. I guess it means that He is our Heavenly Father and we are His Children. Jesus is His son, our Brother. We need to try to be like Him; perfect, pure, holy, reverent so we that we can get back to Heaven.
We are on a path – an adventure with many bridges to cross and mountains to climb. God gave us commandments, prayer and the Holy Ghost to help us climb those mountains. We need to use those guides to get around the boulders on the path.
I have a testimony that we are all children of God and that He loves each and every one of us equally, no matter how far we stray from the path. I know that there are so many trials and temptations that life brings us, but we just need to keep climbing.
“Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.” 2 Nephi 31:20
