As We Roll Upward Towards the Light
Light (white), holds all the colors in our earth’s spectrum (millions of colors if we were talking about heaven’s). A lack of light, darkness, is where devils, his subjects, and God, in conquest of saving souls, has descended, and conquered all their domains. For God comprehends, and has all godly power and all control over all his children’s eternal welfare and eternal progression. Not worldly control, as some might erroneously think, but a Godly control, wherein agency is safeguarded and protected. Life, in God’s sphere, is ordered by Him, rather than by us in our chaos.
Think of a baby in it’s father’s or mother’s arms. Does it go to work, or prepare a meal? No, yet it is cared for in all its needs by the ones who birthed it. Does it have to provide shelter or self protection? No. Then who’s care is it under? The parent’s. God is our Father. We are His children. He, in a Godly way, perfectly governs and controls the circumstances for His children, to help them grow and learn appropriate life lessons, even while providing protection where need be.
We are currently unable to care for ourselves, yet, by and by, as a child can grow up to be like its parents, so can we. Everyone eventually, will have this come to them in the eons of eternal lives. This is our Father plan, and it is truly perfect, like Him!
Do we have a Heavenly Mother? Yes, each one of us does, and God has his nurture upon us all, not just here, but throughout all the eternal lives through our progression.
Again, with opposition in all things, this is speaking specifically of circumstances. This means that while there is good in every situation, in which God is blessing us, it is also true that Satan’s influence will be there too, trying to destroy us and do us harm. God is in every detail of our lives, and so is the adversary, or Satan. In every situation, there is going to be either a lot of good and a little bad, or a lot of bad and a little good. This is the compound refered to, in which all things are a compound in one. We get to choose which force, good or bad, will have the majority. In other words, we can choose the better part, through the exercise of agency, which is simply, the ability to do good.
We can take what little good is in a situation, and learn from the bad, repent, and never have to walk down that path again. Likewise, we can have a beautiful and glorious experience from the tender mercies of the Lord, through obedience to His laws and commandments, and choose the good, provided by His grace. We can then receive the little bit of bad which comes with it, and use it to serve and tutor us, as we choose to repent, and learn from it. Yes, there is opposition in ALL things, circumstantially speaking, and the choice is ours.
