Amazing Grace!

This is such an awesome song. I love to listen to this one all the time. Sometimes its just because I love to hear the orchestra in the background. But whatever the reason is the message is still the best. After we have given it our best our heavenly father will make up for the rest with his grace. But we know we have to put forth the effort to atleast try to do the best we can. That doesn't give us the excuse to just do whatever we want and just say oh god will give me grace. We have to put forth the effort to try to be perfect. We know that we can never be perfect but the effort we put in will help us out. Then God will give us mercy based on the effort we have put in to trying to be perfect people. Im thankful for the grace that God has given me so far in my life. I know that he has done a lot for me so far in my life. I know that if I put in more effort that he will give me more grace.

There is Hope!

When we are going through times of trial thats when Satan can easily get us. He feeds off of us when we are lost or are struggling rally bad. He knows our weekness and knows how he can get us. His temptations turn into rails of sin. But through the Atonement of Jesus Christ we can look ot the heavens and we can look to the skies. WE can find redemption starring into our eyes. That is because of th esacrifice that Jesus made for us. We can be forgiven because of him. We have to repent of the things we have done. WE have to promise not to do them again. But we can be redeemed through him. Theres victory in the Lord, cling to the Father and his holy name. We have to keep the commandsmnets that he has given us and be worthy members of his name. We have to do the things that are pleasing to him. Satan is just waiting on our hearts to say "lt me ride on that long black train." He doesn't want to work to make corrections in ourlives. He wants us to give up and get on that train and take the easy way out. "It sounds so good but i must stay away." We need to remember th is. It will always sound good to give into whatever temptation we have that might seem to bring us temporary happiness. Bu thats all it is. Temporary. We must stay away and clong to the Fathers name. In this there is peace.

Livin On A Prayer

This song has a lot of truth in the lyrics of it. It is describing a love story but deep sown in it it has another message. A message that really displays all of us found here on the earth. While here on earth "we have to hold on to what we got, it doesn't make a difference if we make it or not." We have been given the gospel and now we have to hold onto it so that Satan wont get us. He trys to get us in any possible way that he can. And by dang it he has some clever ways. However "we are half way there, livin on a prayer." Thats what we are doing. Every day we are living on a prayer. we pray in the morning and at night and however often we need to during the day. We pray to our heavenly father to give us strength and courage and peace throughout our day. Then as we pray earnestly with all our faith then god will reach down and say "take my hand we'll make it I swear." He will lift us up. He loves us and wants to help us after we have tried our best. We can pray to him always. I hope this song has helped y'all out there to see it in a different way. "Livin on a prayer!"
