I am a Child of God

In the past few months I have allowed myself to drift from a closer relationship with God. There is a void in my soul that no person can fill. During the day while surrounded by people that love me I can still feel loneliness. I have come to realize at the end of the day that we have an option of actually being alone or of allowing ourselves to have His constant companionship. His love can wrap around us and help us to feel warm. I know my Savior lives and I regret that I have missed out on so much time in my life to be near Him. I know He is standing there waiting to accept us back into his fold. I know I can have peace, comfort, warmth and love in my life even while physically alone, because He will always be there.

In The Book of Mormon, Third Nephi Chapter 9 it recounts the story of Jesus speaking to the people of the American continents:
"Therefore, whoso repenteth and cometh unto me as a little child, him will I receive, for of such is the kingdom of God. Behold, for such I have laid down my life, and have taken it up again; therefore repent, and come unto me ye ends of the earth, and be saved."

The Long Road

I have not posted in over a year. I find it so hard to share this personal side of my life. In reality I am open about my life and don't like to keep secrets. I get a wonderful feeling from sharing myself with others, like I am giving a piece of myself to my friends as a gift that they will hopefully accept. I love being able to feel them accept what feels like a tangible piece of my soul. I dont get that feeling through the internet. I feel boring, that no one will care what I say or feel. The hardest part is feeling like there won't be anything left of me for myself when I'm done.
