So I havent really posted anything worthwhile... in a while... no pun intended. I wish I had more to say. hahaa... but really.
So What has been going on with my life lately... hmm...
Okay. So I am still working at the daycare with Wendy, and its been alright. I thought I would be more tired of it already. I worked a 7-3 shift the other day, and I would like to never have to do that again... ugh. chills. But while I was working it, Vacation Bible School was going on, and Pastor Dale who is, I suppose, technically my boss (which I find ironic, being a mormon and whatnot,) told a weird story to the kids about how we are saved only by grace, or what Jesus did for us in his sacrifice. It was super bizarre to hear, because I do not believe that at all. It made me think a little harder about what I do believe. I know that Christ died for us, and that because of that we will all be resurrected. If you want to call that being 'saved,' then I guess it kind of makes sense. But what Pastor Dale was saying was that because Jesus died for us, we are all every one of us automatically saved and make it into heaven. His words, not mine. This is where it stipos making sense to me. If we are all saved by grace only, then why do we even try in this life? He addressed that as well. He said that everytime he does what Jesus wants, like pray or go to church, it is his way of saying thank you to Jesus for saving him. As pretty as this message sounds, I just don't agree at all. yes, we will all receive a body because of what He did for us, but WE have to work and do our best to deserve it, and to make it into the Celestial Kingdom. He can't just stick us there automatically. You have to work for Celestial Glory, but it will be worth it.
I dunno. It just made me appreciate how much sense our religion makes, and how I do believe it vehemently, no matter what else someone may try to unfluence me to believe. I have faith in it, and theres not a lot you can do to shake that.
