Recently I was frustrated with myself as I was struggling to overcome one of my many weaknesses. The answer came at church on Sunday as we studied Sister Neill F. Marriott's talk. I had been trying to overcome my weakness on my own. It just doesn't work very well at all. The Savior's Atonement is there to help us. Love and change of heart are gifts from God.
I should have known this by now as I have read Stephen E. Robinson's book "Believing Christ" which teaches that we often can't do it on our own no matter how hard we try. The Atonement is the only way. Somehow we still forget this important lesson.
