So what is a girl like me with a perfection complex to do? Give up. Yep that's right just give up. Now before any of you get your panties in a twist over such a thing, let me explain further.
|Carl Bloch's Healing at the Pool of Bethesda|
Years I have believed that healing belonged to those who "deserved" it. Those who are faithful and to me faithful equates to perfect. It's not that I didn't intellectually believe that I deserved to take part in the great and eternal Atonement, it's that I believed that is was for those that did those "really big" sins and for those that were "faithful". Where did I fit? There I was waiting at the side of the Pool of Bethesda waiting for the water to stir so I could lower myself into the waters. Then I learned this important lesson while serving in the temple this week. Faith actually equates to repentant not perfect.
