The Joy of Repentance - August 15, 2016

Hello Every one !!
How are you all?

This week I thought I should share this things to all of you.
Lots of time we talk about Repentance as an easy process. But it is a really hard process to go through. If we take courage and Repent and humble our self to God our sins will be forgiven and the Joy of Repentance is High. 


Alma 36:8-20

 But behold, the voice said unto me: Arise. And I arose and stood up, and beheld the angel.
 And he said unto me: If thou wilt of thyself be destroyed, seek no more to destroy the church of God.
 10 And it came to pass that I fell to the earth; and it was for the space of three days and three nights that I could not open my mouth, neither had I the use of my limbs.
 11 And the angel spake more things unto me, which were heard by my brethren, but I did not hear them; for when I heard the words—If thou wilt be destroyed of thyself, seek no more to destroy the church of GodI was struck with such great fear and amazement lest perhaps I should be destroyed, that I fell to the earth and I did hear no more.
 12 But I was racked with eternal torment, for my soul was harrowed up to the greatest degree and racked with all my sins.
 13 Yea, I did remember all my sins and iniquities, for which I was tormented with the pains of hell;yea, I saw that I had rebelled against my God, and that I had not kept his holy commandments.
 14 Yea, and I had murdered many of his children, or rather led them away unto destruction; yea, and in fine so great had been my iniquities, that the very thought of coming into the presence of my God did rack my soul with inexpressible horror.
 15 Oh, thought I, that I could be banished and become extinct both soul and body, that I might not be brought to stand in the presence of my God, to be judged of my deeds.
 16 And now, for three days and for three nights was I racked, even with the pains of a damned soul.
 17 And it came to pass that as I was thus racked with torment, while I was harrowed up by the memory of my many sins, behold, I remembered also to have heard my father prophesy unto the people concerning the coming of one Jesus Christ, a Son of God, to atone for the sins of the world.
 18 Now, as my mind caught hold upon this thought, I cried within my heart: O Jesus, thou Son of God, have mercy on me, who am in the gall of bitterness, and am encircled about by the everlasting chains of death.
 19 And now, behold, when I thought this, I could remember my pains no more; yea, I was harrowed up by the memory of my sins no more.
 20 And oh, what joy, and what marvelous light I did behold; yea, my soul was filled with joy as exceeding as was my pain!
No matter how deep is our sin , If we rely on the Atonement of Jesus Christ and Repent of our sins, we can receive the remission of our sins and feel the joy of Repentance.

Lots of love
Elder Shrestha
