Spiritual Heart Surgery

I’d like to think I have a Christ-like heart.



Without guile.

However, in reality, my heart is a sinner’s heart, and truly, it needs to purged more than every once in a while.

For because I am not always long-suffering.

Or diligent.

Or forgiving.

Or kind-hearted.

Which I why I am so grateful the Atonement extends long and far enough to prod and filter and cleanse my heart from the sticky thickness of my wickedness.

So today, as I partook of the sacrament, listening carefully to the sacramental prayers being offered, I was pricked enough in my heart to be grateful for the spiritual surgery repentance has to offer.
