“[I] can repent… [I] can be filled with joy” – Dale G. Renlund
The fact that we can repent is the good news of the gospel!Bible Dictionary, “Gospels.” Guilt can be “swept away.”Enos 1:6 We can be filled with joy, receive a remission of our sins, and have “peace of conscience.”Mosiah 4:3 We can be freed from feelings of despair and the bondage of sin. We can be filled with the marvelous light of God and be “pained no more.”Mosiah 27:29 Repentance is not only possible but also joyful because of our Savior. I still remember the feelings that washed over me in the branch president’s office after the firecracker episode. I knew I had been forgiven. My feelings of guilt vanished, my gloomy mood lifted, and my heart felt light.
