The Atonement means everything!

When you think of The Atonement of Jesus Christ what do you think?
When I think of The Atonement it makes me reflect onto the basics of our belief in our Savior Jesus Christ. While I was in Priesthood class today we had a discussion on this exact subject. So it made me reflect on a lot  of things today with my personal relationship with my Savior. And as I sat back and was hearing a lesson on the Teachings of President Joseph Fielding Smith he said in a letter words that struck my heart. As a father, President Smith was just as dedicated to his responsibility to testify of the Savior. On July 18, 1948, he sent a letter to his sons Douglas and Milton, who were serving as full-time missionaries. He wrote:
“I sit and reflect at times, and in my reading of the scriptures, I think of the mission of our Lord, what he did for me, and when these feelings come upon me I say to myself, I cannot be untrue to him. He loved me with a perfect love, as he has done for all men, especially those who serve him, and I must love him with all the love I can, even if it is imperfect, which it should not be. It is wonderful. I did not live in the days of our Savior; he has not come to me in person. I have not beheld him. His Father and He have not felt it necessary to grant me such a great blessing as this. But it is not necessary. I have felt his presence. I know that the Holy Spirit has enlightened my mind and revealed him unto me, so that I do love my Redeemer, I hope, and feel it is true, better than everything else in this life. I would not have it otherwise. I want to be true to Him. I know He died for me, for you and all mankind that we might live again through the resurrection. I know that He died that I might be forgiven my follies, my sins, and be cleansed from them. How wonderful is this love. How can I, knowing this, do anything else but love him, my Redeemer. I want my boys in the mission fields to feel this same way. I want my children and my grandchildren to feel that way, and never stray from the path of truth and righteousness.” As I heard this beloved Prophets testimony it made me wanna do so much better! 
When J think of what He has done for me He has done it out of Love! He saw something better in me even though He knew I would rebel so much and turn my back against the Gospel of Jesus Christ that would bless me in many ways He still did the most heroic act of what anyone can and would ever have done and that was all through the blood He bled for us and not judging anyone who beat him He just did the will of His Father which was driven by Love for us to come home so please always remember that it is in and through Him we can be made whole.

"When All Is Said And Done"

         A couple of days ago I had a really great study on where I could potentially be by the end of my mission, I wrote down a couple of notes on how I feel about the work I am doing right now as a representative of Jesus Christ.

 I Remember the very 1st day I came into the MTC, the day was so clear I held on to my mom and sisters hands crying as I past slowly but surely what i would say was home. We drove 1 last time throught the campus of BYU and once we past the campus I saw "THE FLAGS". After that I asked myself are you ready.........? Few minutes later I lost it with tears going down my face, fear overcame my body the fear of leaving my life, my world! But as I look back now, oh the things I wish I would have said and done! But it is only natural to change as this process of 2 yeas comes about. But now i have a new perspective, new life is in me a new vision, a new goal. When I think of days to come I get a feeling of fear, a feeling of being scared! Will i give my all when it is said and done? This is home now, this is my new love, when the day comes "When All Is Said And Done" I want to have no regrets! I want to look my Heavenly Father in the eyes and say "I Have Done My Job".

You might think what a title for my blog....... Well?

Well This is my first blog ever so lets see how this goes? First off your probably thinking why now why on earth does his title say too blessed to be stressed? Too blessed to be stressed!! "Not a competition between others of who is the best, but a competition between yourself to be your very best!" Well I will tell you why? Its just exactly the way it is suppose to be! I mean i am feeling the best I have been in a long time! I am happy, joyful all the time!!!! It is great to be out here in Florida serving my Heavenly Father, in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been so blessed to see families come into this gospel, as well as souls i know the lord has been preparing these people for me to come find and teach!! But before i get to carried on with my mission i just want to share the small and simple thing of why i am blessed out here and just my life in general!!! (Alma 37:6) The first thing is my family coming up here in August will be the Anniversary of us being sealed in the Salt Lake City temple for a couple of years!!!
The next thing is me being a worthy Member of this church to be the servant of the lord how great it is to be able to serve under not only a living prophet but the Lord and Savior himself!
And last but not Least is me out here doing work!!! And being blessed so much to be able to live a happy clean life out here it is a great thing to be worthy of his spirit. I love it
But I do know with all my heart that this is The Church of Jesus Christ, I know of a surety that everything in my life is possible with him being central to my life, I know Jesus Christ makes salvation possible, He is truly the son of god, I know with the fullness of my heart he is real i have seen to much to deny this gospel. The book of mormon is true and if you have never read it, Read it!!! Trust me it will bless your life it has blessed mine and my family so much! if you wanna know more just ask me and i will tell y'all about my conversion story but I do promise you the lord loves you and he wants the best for you and he will lead you to the truth just get on your knees and ask I did and hey look at me I have done a full 180 from what I use to be and I am so grateful for it because my heavenly father loves me!!!
