The next morning for my scripture study I clicked open my scripture app and there was a conference talk open. As I read I was grateful because it felt like Heavenly Father was sitting me down and talking to me about what had happened the night before. This is the talk that I read, I know that decisions determine destiny. Even though we initially made a poor decision by watching this particular show we were richly blessed for choosing to turn it off. The Lord doesn't hold grudges, as soon as we do what we need to invite the Spirit, the Spirit will come. Enjoy these highlights from the talk:
Decisions for Eternity
"A pivotal spiritual attribute is that of self-mastery—the strength to place reason over appetite. Self-mastery builds a strong conscience. And your conscience determines your moral responses in difficult, tempting, and trying situations. Fasting helps your spirit to develop dominance over your physical appetites. Fasting also increases your access to heaven’s help, as it intensifies your prayers. Why the need for self-mastery? God implanted strong appetites within us for nourishment and love, vital for the human family to be perpetuated. When we master our appetites within the bounds of God’s laws, we can enjoy longer life, greater love, and consummate joy.
