#3 - always hold on with both hands!
“Yes, God loves you this very day and always.
He is not waiting to love you until you have overcome your weaknesses and bad habits. He loves you today with a full understanding of your struggles. He is aware that you reach up to Him in heartfelt and hopeful prayer. He knows of the times you have held onto the fading light and believed--even in the midst of growing darkness. He knows of your sufferings. He knows of your remorse for the times you have fallen short or failed. And still He loves you.
And God knows of your successes; though they may seem small to you, He acknowledges and cherishes each one of them. He loves you for extending yourself to others. He loves you for reaching out and helping others bear their heavy burdens--even when you are struggling with your own
Never give up hope, When we give up trying, we are in essence, giving up on the Savior of the world and saying that he cannot help me, when we all know that he can. Keep trying, Never ever ever give up, even in hard times or hard luck or continually making the same mistakes over and over again, never give up. Look forward to the sacrament each week when we can renew our promise to keep his commandments and to continue to strive to remember Him that we might have his spirit to be with us. Repent and try again. Yea, like Lather, Rinse and Repeat
