The Strength Of Righteousness

After a late night, I had trouble sleeping in the middle of the night because it was hot. I opened the window, and turned on the computer and read my email. I finally got to bed again, and slept in until 10 AM.

After getting up, I did some stretching. In the afternoon, I took a three mile walk. I am trying to lose my weight, because I am at high risk of having something bad happen to my body. I am trying to correct that through what I eat, and what I do.

Before I took my walk, a friend called, and we talked for about an hour about her daughter. She needed to know righteous standards, so I connected to her computer, using TeamViewer, and we read some of the “For The Strength Of Youth” pamphlet.

I pray that I can emulate this behavior:

“Thus they become high priests forever, after the order of the Son, the Only Begotten of the Father, who is without beginning of days or end of years, who is full of grace, equity, and truth. And thus it is. Amen.

Now, as I said concerning the holy order, or this high priesthood, there were many who were ordained and became high priests of God; and it was on account of their exceeding faith and repentance, and their righteousness before God, they choosing to repent and work righteousness rather than to perish;

Therefore they were called after this holy order, and were sanctified, and their garments were washed white through the blood of the Lamb.

Now they, after being sanctified by the Holy Ghost, having their garments made white, being pure and spotless before God, could not look upon sin save it were with abhorrence; and there were many, exceedingly great many, who were made pure and entered into the rest of the Lord their God.

And now, my brethren I would that ye should humble yourselves before God, and bring forth fruit meet for repentance, that ye may also enter into that rest.” (Alma 13:9-13)

This is what I previously wrote after reading Alma 13:  Trying To Keep An Even Temper
