Repentance brightens us!

A message from your young women leaders.

How long can you go without blinking?

Within a few seconds, your eyes begin to burn and tear up. It’s inevitable.

We all have to blink.

Blinking is like repenting.

“We all need to repent,” our prophet said.

It’s a fact of life.

To repent is to repair.

To see clearly requires blinking thousands of times a day.

Likewise, repentance is the work of constant corrections to repair not only our mistakes and missteps but also our relationship with God.

Sometimes, we persuade ourselves that repentance is a burden, and we put it off.

But just like blinking brings immediate relief, repenting brings immediate rest.

Repentance brightens us!

At the end of a long day of blinking, we close our eyes and rest.

At the end of a long day of earth life, full of mistakes simply because we’re human, we can repent and find rest in Jesus Christ.
