WE CAN CHANGE OUR NATURE! The nature of the soul. The soul is our spirit and our body. Each allows us to use and do certain things. A spirit allows the Holy Ghost to talk to us. Our bodies allow us to experience joy, pain, the wind in our faces and more. The nature of something is defined by the part that has the most influence. If our spirit has the most influence, we will seek spiritual things aka: things of God. If our mortal body has the most influence, we will be influenced by worldly things.
"For intelligence cleaveth unto intelligence; wisdom receiveth wisdom; truth embraceth truth; virtue loveth virtue; lightcleaveth unto light; mercy hath compassion on mercy and claimeth her own; justice continueth its course and claimeth its own."
To transform your nature, do things that are righteous. The Lord commands us to have charity, pray to him etc. "not to protect the person to whom we are going to judge (or some other action) but ourselves." Commandments are for us because God loves each of us. A desire to change comes from "Just doing it", but also "Choosing the right" (CTR).
This week choose the best of actions and ask "why am I going to do this?"
I know that this will change your perspective, it has changed mine this week.
Love Elder Van Kammen
ps. This week I had awesome experiences of when we are willing to be humble and listen to others the Holy ghost (the spirit) can be there! Matt 18:20 "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."
The lord has blessed me! He can bless you!
Long beach is a crazy place, but has those people in the depths of mortal hurt who truly want to change. Be a BOSS THIS WEEK!
