Spinning Plates and the Atonement

Sometimes I feel like a magic plate spinner
 Each one of the labeled plates above could also have its own set of spinning plates.
Many days I feel like I am running from plate to plate trying to keep them all spinning, spinning, spinning so that they don't fall. 

Do you ever feel like that?
 Elder Bednar  wrote this amazing talk that I needed today.  I opened up my new Ensign and there it was: The Atonement, and the Journey of Mortality

This talk is basically the same message as In the Strength of the Lord which is on my Must Reads list.

I even wrote a blog post about it {CLICK HERE}

What I am touched by this time as I read it, is how we need the Atonement so much in EVERYTHING! 

"The enabling power of the Atonement strengthens us to do and be good and to serve beyond our own individual desire and natural capacity."-Elder Bednar

The enabling power of grace is a must have in my life. 

I need it.

I need Him.

  I am so grateful for the Atonement. 

I know He lives.
