Mormon Morsels--Mind the Gap

Image from Microsoft Office Clip Art


Several years back, our parents took us four girls on a trip to Great Britain.  It was a good trip and so interesting!  I loved soaking in local culture and learning new words and phrases.  One of my favorites was "mind the gap."  This was an important phrase when riding the Tube (subway in London).  There is a gap between the train and the platform and you definitely do not want to step there!  You are probably wondering why I would name this post Mind The Gap.  Well last night my husband and daughter and I were having a discussion as we knelt for family prayer.  He was talking about the gap between where we are and where we think we should be.  Ladies, you know where I am going with this.  We all compare ourselves to others, thinking that we will never measure up and that we will never make it back to live with our Heavenly Father.  And you know where that discouragement comes from--the Adversary who wants to use that gap to his advantage.  However, Christ, with His infinite Atonement takes care of that gap and if we let the Atonement work in our lives the way it's meant to, we can accept where we are and know that as long as we are keeping the commandments, living the gospel to the best of our ability, then that gap is bridged by our Savior.  He is minding the gap for us.

Have a wonderful Sabbath. Enjoy your church meetings and your families.
