Arise from the Dust!
"...Arise from the dust, my sons, and be men, and be determined in one mind and in one heart, united in all things, that ye may not come down into captivity;
That ye may not be cursed with a sore cursing; and also, that ye may not incur the displeasure of a just God upon you, unto the destruction, yea, the eternal destruction of both soul and body.
Awake, my sons; put on the armor of righteousness. Shake off the chains with which ye are bound, and come forth out of obscurity, and arise from the dust." (2 Nephi 1:21-23, The Book of Mormon)
We study scriptures so that we can apply them to our own lives and today, these verses can be applied to my life.
BE MEN! (Or Amazon WoMEN!)
SHAKE OFF THE CHAINS! (Whether they be obesity or debt or temptations to overeat or laziness or smoking or gambling or whatever struggles!)
COME FORTH OUT OF OBSCURITY!
ARISE FROM THE DUST!
Pretty powerful start to the morning huh? Now I'm going to go hit the treadmill while shouting, "ARISE!"
