Sunday - #100DayProject - Day 010

With today being Sunday, I thought I'd share something a little more on the spiritual side. I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (aka, the Mormons) and am currently serving as a teacher for one of the Sunday School classes for the adults called Gospel Principles. Today I taught a great lesson on Our Heavenly Father and how we as His spirit children need to know who He is and have an understanding of what He's like. 

It was brought up that if we are to have a relationship with God then we have to know who He is and how to be near Him since He isn't physically here with us. The lesson taught four key principles that I wanted to share here. 
We can know God if we will:
1. Believe that He exists and that He loves us (see Mosiah 4:9).
2. Study the scriptures (see 2 Timothy 3:14–17).
3. Pray to Him (see James 1:5).
4. Obey all His commandments as best we can (see John 14:21–23).
I really appreciate the fact that I am able to gather together each Sunday and spend time with members of my congregation and learn more about God and His plan of happiness for us. But I have found another great group of friends who help me to remember God and His love for me. I belong to an amazing Voxer group called Daily Inspiration where I am able to have spiritual conversations with others not of my faith but who help me be a better person spiritually nonetheless. I am so grateful for these amazing people for helping me share my feelings and not feel awkward.

I invite you all to take some time to devote towards your own spiritual learning. Regardless of which religion you ascribe to, take some time to be calm and think of your Creator and thank them for all the amazing things you have. And if you would like to know more about my faith, feel free to contact me or visit Mormon.org to learn more.
