The atonement is not just for repentance. That’s a part of it, but it’s for any time we feel inadequate or that we aren’t enough. It gets us to where we want and need to be but can’t reach on our own.
And ye cannot bear all things now; nevertheless, be of good cheer, for I will lead you along. The kingdom is yours and the blessings thereof are yours, and the riches of eternity are yours.D&C 78:18
All of us have times in our lives when we’re drowning in whatever situation we might be in…but through Christ all of us can gain the strength to carry on.
