“Even though I have had my share of doubts, questions, self-inflicted trials and failings; I can testify that God is real. He is our Father. He yearns for our happiness and longs to have a relationship with us. I know the power of prayer and fasting. They work. Answers, inspiration, strength, and hope do come, as long as we earnestly and sincerely seek. The answers rarely come in the manner, or timing I want them to, but they absolutely come. Here a little and there a little. Line upon line, precept upon precept. The test is to keep seeking, to keep our hearts and minds soft and open, even when the storms and trials of life are beating down on us. I have felt the peace and hope that can only come from God. God is not a fearful, angry God. He is not an umpire waiting to strike us out. He is a God full of love and mercy. He longs to bless us through the redeeming blood of His only begotten son, Jesus Christ. If we turn our hearts to God and Christ, their love can and will heal us; giving us real, life-giving hope and peace that the world can never offer.”
