"It's never too late to become who you might have been"


How do we become who we were meant to be?
How do we create a Christ-Centered life?
The answer is truly simple: Make the right choice, at the right time, in the right place.
We aren't perfect people but we can strive to be. 

How else might we strive to have a Christ-Centered life?
Regular temple attendance perhaps? Although that might be simple, there are even simpler things we can do. 
Daily Prayer and Daily Scripture Study.
What if you slip up and miss a night?
 What caused you to skip your study and go straight to bed?
Maybe it's time to re-prioritize and make commitments. 

We can show Christ that our lives are centered around him by committing to ALWAYS read our scriptures and say our prayers no matter how late you get home from a date, no matter how late we stay out with friends, no matter how much homework we have. NO MATTER WHAT make scriptures study and personal prayer a priority and commit to never missing a day. 
It's the little things that help us become who we are meant to be. 

Through Jesus Christ we can become who we want to be. The lord has time to help each and every person. If the Lord has time for all of God's children shouldn't we have time for him?

We can't be perfect, but as long as we are trying, that is enough! 

The Lord see's past our imperfections and see's the GREATEST good  with in us. 
How can we learn to see the good in ourselves?
How can we forgive our shortcomings?
How do we see ourselves as the Lord see's us?
Believe that Christ see's nothing but the good in us. 
Believe that he loves you more then imaginable.
Believe you can be who he wants you to be and eventually you will be just that. 

The first step in becoming who we are meant to be is to change and in changing we will begin to recognize the lord and understand our worth in his eyes and we will turn our lives over to him. 
It's easy to feel the changes when we first make them but as life goes on and we become caught up in the moment,  and sometimes we forget what prompted us to change.
"The answer from making the change and then for keeping it, is to testify of the Lord's hand concerning the change all the rest of our days.(Freeman)"

"If ye have experienced a change of heart, and felt to sing the song of redeeming love, I would ask, can ye feel so NOW? (Alma 5:26)" 

When our Journey includes the lord and we recognize our worth within his eyes, we begin to realize it is never too late to become the person the lord wants us to be. 

It's never too late to make Christ the center of our lives!!! 

Preparing for Eternity, not waiting for it.
