My thankfulness heart to my Savior

Aloha!

I have to admit that writing a journal assignment for my New Testament class has really enlighten me and give me more opportunity to reflect on the things that I have learnt. My favorite of all thing is trying to fully comprehend Christ's suffering. Up to this point, I still do not fully understand why Christ would choose such a painful way to suffer for us. It is true that He does it because He loves us but isn't it any easier way to do this?

I personally feel that what Christ has done is so crucial to each of us that He only hopes that what He has done is being appreciated. As I have gone through some of the worst days in my life, I felt that I was not appreciated in anything that I have done and I was feeling really bad. Up to that point, I began reflecting, could Christ feel the same thing that I felt? I began to feel so guilty that I have not really appreciate Christ for what He has done in my life and I know that I have disappoint Him over and over again yet He is still hopeful for me. I know perfectly how it felt because that is what I felt for the past few days.

We are constantly being reminded of this but it is useless unless we make a change. How many of us have a place in our heart for Christ? As I was pondering about this question, I asked myself, do I have a place in my heart for Christ? I have a place for people that I love and cherish but I couldn't seem to find Christ in my heart. I have been praying a lot lately not for things that I want but rather more appreciative of my Heavenly Father and Christ has done for me.

Cousin Rose and Cousin Israel! Coconut toast! They bought me that coconut!
It taste really good! 

I love my job as a tour guide in Polynesian Cultural Centre, I have an opportunity to go the Laie Temple with my two guests from Texas. I have the opportunity to talk about prophets and apostles. It is as if I am a missionary again and I felt the joy sharing the gospel. As we were in the hall listening to the speech from Christ. I heard a distinctly voice,

Behold, I am Jesus Christ, whom the prophet testified shall come into the world.
3 Nephi 11:10            

After the sentence finish, tears gather around my eyes and I felt a warm comforting feeling in my heart. Another scripture pop up in my mind right after that. I recognize that voice so clearly that I know it is Christ that is speaking.

But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. 
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
John 10 : 26 - 27

My only commitment to myself would be appreciate Christ and Heavenly Father as if how you want to be appreciated by friends around you.

"If you recognize a need for change, make the change; don't procrastinate."

An artist draw a picture of Christ when
he saw him in a dream. True story of
Heaven is for real!
