Returning to the Root of Real Religion

I feel it’s time for me to release the desire to know why, and lean in to the uncertainty of faith, and to trust in grace, returning to what religion used to mean instead of clinging to what culture has formed it to be. While there is a lot I do not know, there are some things that I do know. I can live according to what I know, and have faith in the Lord’s promises. I can press forward with steadfastness in Christ and live a life of obedience, sacrifice, chastity and consecration. I can pattern my life after the Savior, building healthy relationships with men and women that will allow me to experience true joy and connection.

Daily Wisdom

If you truly believe the great mission of our Heavenly Father is to exalt and glorify His children and that He knows best how to do it—doesn’t it make sense to embrace and follow His commandments, even the ones that appear difficult? Should we not cherish the light posts He has given that guide us through the darkness and the trials of mortality? They mark the way back to our heavenly home! By choosing Heavenly Father’s path, you lay a divine foundation for your personal progress … that will bless you throughout your life.

— President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “Living the Gospel Joyfully”
