Digital Dialog Week 12

This past week I have been thinking and pondering about the love the God has for each of us and what the nature of this love is like. I was comforted in these short but powerful scriptures and I wanted to share them with you all. 
1st John 4 
16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
 17 Here in is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
 19 We love him, because he first loved us. 
I am drawn to the scripture that talks about how there is no fear in love. This helps me understand better the plan that my Heavenly Father has for me. If I trust in him there is no reason to worry about what comes next for me. 
I am constantly worried about what major I should pick, what job I will have and what my life will look like in 10 years. After reading these scriptures I was able to comprehend how If I am lead by Christ and truly love him and my Father in Heaven all will work out in the end. 
xoxo, Han.

Digital Dialog Week 11

As  holidays draw near I am often reminded of my late grandmother. My grandmother suffered with breast cancer for over 21 years of her life. She was a fighter. 

I always looked up to her as a kind and diligent women. She once told me that all she cared about was being a woman of God and not a woman of the world. She was truly exceptional.

Sadly, this will be the first holiday season that she will not be with us. I always think about her but she has been crossing my mind a lot this week as Thanksgiving is coming.  When I am sad and I think of how I wis she was here with my this scripture is always comforting. 

Alma 40:11

 11 Now, concerning the state of the soul between death and the resurrection—Behold, it has been made known unto me by an angel, that the spirits of all men, as soon as they are departed from this mortal body, yea, the spirits of all men, whether they be good or evil, are taken home to that God who gave them life.

I find this scripture so beautiful. Everyone no matter if they were good or evil are taken home to our Heavenly Father. I love how the word home is used in this scripture. It makes me feel that being with my God really is where my grandma will be the happiest. 

I miss her dearly but I know that she is happy and that she is doing some of the most important work on the other side. I am grateful for The Plan of Salvation and the hope that it brings me that one day I will be reunited with my grandma. 

I love the Lord and I know that he loves me

Digital Dialog Week 10

This week I had a 6 page research paper due on how media affects eating disorders. I spend countless hours on this project and by the end of the paper I felt so sad. This topic is one that many seem not talk about. I pondered a lot about what the cause of these heartbreaking mental illnesses could be.

There are many factors which lead to eating disorders such as biological, economical, cultural, and social factors. There is not only one reason that someone might struggle with these illnesses.

However, I thought also a lot about how Satan may try to make us feel bad about our bodies. Satan himself does not have a body so it would make sense for him to attack the greatest gift that our Heavenly Father has given us.

After my paper was done I wanted everyone in the whole world to know what it says about our bodies in 1st Corinthians 3: 16-17

 “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? … The temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” 

I am immensely grateful for the gift of the body. Heavenly Father loves us so much that he made a perfect plan. A crucial part of this plan was to come to Heaven obtain a body and learn to become more like him and his son Jesus Christ.

I love them both and I know they love me.

Xoxo Han.
