Doctrine and Covenants 61:20

"I, the Lord, was angry with you yesterday, but today mine anger is turned away."
Doctrine and Covenants 61:20

God's mercy is remarkable.  No matter how many wrong choices we have made... no matter how many times we've known the will of God and gone the other way... no matter how many times we've been confused and lost, having to rely upon our own strength because we've lost the spirit... God still has his arm stretched out to save us.  And, in the context of our discussion about time... yesterday is nothing.  Today, NOW, God's anger is turned away and he is ready to receive us in his arms, as soon as we are ready to be there. The tough part about that is that we have to let go of our chosen obsession in order to get there.  We have to let go of all of the walls of resistance that we have built up to protect ourselves from vulnerability to God.  We have to realize that his way is really the only way that we are going to find happiness, peace, safety... as well as true excitement and mental stimulation. :)  After all, God isn't boring. :)  Today... and all that that entails... let's reach out our hands to God,  accept his offer of friendship and love, and learn what he has to give.
