"Out to get us" #1 out of 57 drafts

I was talking on the phone with a friend (see a theme developing) and she said, "Isn't it funny, we know God loves us, but sometimes we get in our head that He's out to get us?"

And I guess He does want to "get us"....get us back to Him, get us to grow, get us to be all that He knows we can become.

The conference talk I read this morning by Elder Samuelson had 10 things to remember about testimony...

First, everyone has worth because we are all children of God. He knows us, loves us, and wants us to succeed and return to Him. We must learn to trust in His love and in His timing rather than in our own sometimes impatient and imperfect desires.

He wants us to succeed. Is working with us to help us succeed.

2 Nephi 24:26 explains that

He doeth not anything save it be for the benefit of the world; for he loveth the world, even that he layeth down his own life that he may draw call men unto him. Wherefore, he commandeth none that they shall not partake of his salvation.

Everything He does is for our benefit, for our growth and spiritual development.
He's on our side.

Are we on His?
