As outlined in the video, we can’t understand who we are without understanding who we were and who we are meant to become. By studying scriptures and other words of God, we can better understand who we were and who we are meant to become to gain a better understanding of who we are.
Reading the scriptures and drawing closer to my Heavenly Father has shown me that I was a daughter of God in the premortal life. In the premortal life, Satan and Jesus Christ proposed two plans. In short, those who chose Satan’s plan was cast out while those who chose Heavenly Father’s and Jesus Christ’s plan was sent to earth to receive a body.
That means every single person born on earth has chosen God’s plan for themselves already. We are sons and daughters of our loving Heavenly Father. We are divine beings destined to become like our Father. That is why we strive to overcome our daily trials and to be a better friend, a family member, and a better disciple of our Heavenly Father. This is why we continue fighting to live day after day no matter how hard life can get.
I hope you will one day find out for yourself your divine worth as a child of God. I hope that you will search the scriptures to find out who you were, who you are destined to become and, most of all, who you are. With this knowledge, you will find greater happiness, strength and motivation.
I hope you have felt God’s love for you today. He is your Heavenly Father. He wants you to succeed in all that is good and righteous. He will help you both in temporal and in spiritual things if you will take the time to ask for His divine help. I know this to be true through my many personal experiences. You are and will forever be loved.
