WHAT LACK I YET? - my new book

As of late, I haven't been heavily involved in writing new posts on the blog. The reason for this is that I've been busy writing a book. In August of last year, the Lord put it on my heart to turn my focus to a great quote by Joseph Smith and write a few words on that. And so I've done.

The book will in a non-confrontative way help Mormons to a new way of looking at our doctrine and what Joseph was all about. Hopefully, the book will motivate its readers to repent, and thereby letting God take from them what they don't need and give them what they do need.

In short, the book is an attempt to learn what we have to know in order to desire what we must have. If you find it valuable, please share with friends and family.

A physical copy of the book can be ordered on Amazon.

If you prefer the pdf-version, you can access that here. A smaller sized pdf is found here.

The choice of faith

I've frequently heard people say that we should place our burdens on the Lord. The how-to of this enticing proposition has unfortunately eluded me–until last week!

I listened to an interview with a woman who had gone through difficult times. At on time, fear and worry almost paralysed her. In this depth of despair, she decided to give her fears to Jesus. Before she made her point, I understood that this is all about the choice to live in faith rather than fear.

  • It's a choice to trust the Lord and just let go of the fear. 
  • It's a choice to trust in life/God/your journey and not make your problems and challenges into permanent hinders or stumbling-blocks, but to let them be stepping-stones on your path. 
  • It's a choice to trust that God will make the bitter into sweet and sanctify our heartache. 
  • It's the choice to not carry every tough decision or step at the same time, but to allow God work his magic and timetable and accept whatever he puts on our plates, whenever he chooses to do so.
  • It's the choice to not worry about tomorrow, and rest in the knowledge that one step and day at a time is enough.
  • It's the choice to trust that salvation isn't ultimately worked out by us, but rather God's work and glory in and through us.
This song captures it beautifully!
