You have tried to hinder my progress and you have tried to make me worldly.  I am worldly enough, which is why I don’t have any room in my life for your desires to overpower those that lead me to God.  You want me to do this and do that.  You want me to give in to the desires of the flesh.  You want me to feel good about leaving God’s side, and soon enough once you’ve got your way you will leave me so I will be stranded.  The second I try and fight my way back to my Heavenly Father you’ll appear to pull me back.  I want to do what God asks of me, I am sick of messing up because of you.  I don’t want to do be doing so good for so long and throw it away because of one little thing you persuaded me to do.  I am sick of saying, “I am never doing this again.”  I’ve said that so many times.  It’s lost it’s meaning.  You only want what’s best for YOU, well you know what? I want what’s best for me.  God has asked me a thousand times to get rid of you, I can’t handle it anymore.  You’ve cause me so much grief, the pain you’ve caused me is not even comparable to anything else.  The agony, the misery, the sadness, and the pain that my soul has been burdened with, has all been caused by you.  The harder I fight to get closer to my Father in Heaven, the more  you drag me back.  You always get in the way, I have lost my patience with you and I can’t stand the fact you have been around this long.  I don’t know why I keep you around, I thought I didn’t leave any room for you to be around.  I am a child of God not of man especially not YOU.  There is no more room for you,

“Awake, my soul! No longer droop in sin. Rejoice, O my heart, and give place no more for the enemy of my soul.” -2 Nephi 4:28


All you want is momentary, I may enjoy myself for a second but soon after I am left empty.  Your ways lead to nowhere.  I will do what my Heavenly Father wants and I will work towards that with all my heart, might, mind, and strength.  You will not distract, discourage, and make me procrastinate again.  I am capable and I am more than willing.  You think you can win?  Ha that’s a laugh…I know you will never give up but neither will I.  I have the Spirit, you don’t.  You are not God’s child, I am.  Yeah He might have created you, but He created you to be destroyed and forgotten.  I will learn of your mistakes and I will show you  my inherent God-like potential I don’t need the things of the world, I can stand here and look upon it and know I am better off.    You’re relentless but I’m eternal.  Good luck!

“For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child,submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father.”  -Mosiah 3:19
