Papa D just had a great post, Repentance As a Liberating Movement Toward the Ideal. He concisely, states one of the things I love best about Mormonism. The Lord wants all heights and depths for us, every joy to its fullest. He denies us nothing.
I am so grateful that the Lord takes the burden of that I cannot handle. He frees me to look at myself with new eyes. To see where I am in error. To see where I am not yet fully developed. His grace frees me to progress. He liberates me so I can grow and change and flourish.
This is why the Lord said, "Say nothing but repentance unto this generation; keep my commandments, and assist to bring forth my work, according to my commandments, and you shall be blessed." D&C 6:9
