Today I, ____________________, will strive to bring the power of the Atonement into my life.
“Repentance is more than simply acknowledging wrongdoings. It is a change of mind and heart.” – For the Strength of Youth
Today and for the next 17 days, I, ____________________, commit to go beyond simply acknowledging my sins. I will seek a change of mind and heart.
“Some listening today may need “a mighty change [of] heart” to confront serious sins. The help of a priesthood leader might be necessary. For most, repenting is quiet and quite private, daily seeking the Lord’s help to make needed changes.
For most, repentance is more a journey than a one-time event. It is not easy. To change is difficult. It requires running into the wind, swimming upstream. Jesus said, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me.” Repentance is turning away from some things, such as dishonesty, pride, anger, and impure thoughts, and turning toward other things, such as kindness, unselfishness, patience, and spirituality. It is “re-turning” toward God.” – “Repent … That I May Heal You” by Neil L. Andersen
