Just Let The Savior In~

I know beyond any doubt that we have a very loving Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ. They desire for us to reach out to them for our everyday concerns and needs. Since the passing of my sweet Aunt Della and my dear brother John, I have been praying for peace of mind and comfort. I have received that comfort and peace through prayer. I realize that our Heavenly Father wants to hear from us frequently. He doesn't just want us to say a trite prayer but he wants us to pray to Him with all our deep concerns and also of our gratitude for His blessings. 
In order for our dear Savior to come to us; we must open the door and let Him in. That door is opened through prayer; a true prayer from the heart. Sister Chieko Okazaki in her book entitled, "Lighten Up" she said the following: "Heavenly Father doesn't want to hear only nice prayers. He wants to hear real prayers, honest prayers.....He doesn't want polite platitudes. He wants you! All of you!. He wants to be the center of your total life-the worried you, the mad you, and the sad you, as well as the inspired, happy, obedient, loving you". Remember you can pray any time, anywhere about anything. Just let the Savior in.
Sister Sheri Dew in her book entitled; "If Life Were Easy, It wouldn't Be Hard" stated: " Is there anything too insignificant to discuss with the Lord? Is any heartache too petty? Is any anxiety or worry too trivial? Is any weakness too insignificant to deal with? The Lord doesn't seem to think so. He has invited us to weary Him with our requests and needs. Just let the Savior in.

Will You Let Him In~ 
He is waiting Patiently 
at the door of your heart
He has knocked, once again
Will you let Him in,
Accepting God into your life
fostering a relationship with
our loving creator,
Our Savior, stands
At the doorway of your heart
Let Him in.
During the last few weeks my heart has ached but the Savior has walked with me and I know that He Lives and Loves me and you and that comfort and peace has come through Him. 
Just Let The Savior In.

LeAnn, I always love reading your perspective on things. I think my prayers have been far too trite lately. I need to unburden my heart. Thanks for this post. It has opened my eyes. Love you! I am sorry for your losses. Thank goodness for the Gospel which teaches us that this is not all there is. xxoo
