Always Remember Him

This post is based on most recent General Conference talk called "Always Remember Him" by Elder Gerrit W. Gong. I would like to share with you some highlights while I was reading the talk.

Elder Gong mentioned,

"Remembering and forgetting are part of everyday life. For example, once, after looking everywhere for her new mobile phone, my wife finally decided to call it from another phone. When she heard her phone ring, my wife thought, “Who could be calling me? I haven’t given that number to anyone!”

Remembering and forgetting are also part of our eternal journey. Time, agency, and memory help us learn, grow, and increase in faith. Here are six ways we can always remember Him.
First, we can always remember Him by having confidence in His covenants, promises, and assurances.
Second, we can always remember Him by gratefully acknowledging His hand throughout our lives. 

We can remember those who give us a chance, and a second chance, with honesty, kindness, patience, and encouragement. And we can become someone others remember when they most needed help. Gratefully remembering the assistance of others and the Spirit’s guiding influence is a way we remember Him. It is a way we count our many blessings and see what God hath done.

Third, we can always remember Him by trusting when the Lord assures us. “He who has repented of his sins, the same is forgiven, and I, the Lord, remember them no more.”

To be worthy does not mean to be perfect. Heavenly Father’s plan of happiness invites us to be humbly at peace on our life’s journey to someday become perfected in Christ, not constantly worried, frustrated, or unhappy in our imperfections today. Remember, He knows all the things we don’t want anyone else to know about us and loves us still.

Fourth, He invites us to remember that He is always welcoming us home.
When you are ready, please open your heart to the Book of Mormon, again, for the first time. Please pray with real intent, again, for the first time/

Fifth, we can always remember Him on the Sabbath through the sacrament. 
Finally, sixth, our Savior invites us to always remember Him as He always remembers us.

The scriptures describe resurrection as “every limb and joint shall be restored to their proper and perfect frame,” and “even a hair of the head shall not be lost.” That being so, please consider how it is that our Savior’s perfect, resurrected body still bears the wounds in His side and the nail prints in His hands and feet."

I encourage you to read the whole talk in your own time, here's the link to the talk below.

Stay Tuned until next time.
