What does Divine Nature have to do with being a mother? I remember when I was in Young Women’s, and how I thought that after I was finished completing all my goals, that would be it. Even as a teen I knew that what I was learning would be an asset to me later in life, but, until I became a mother, I had no idea how much it would really have to do with being a mother. It really is all in how you look at it. I have always wanted to be a mother, and wanted to have children. And come to think of it, until now I never knew how important my prayer and fasting was before I was given my Patriarchal Blessing. I prayed, fasted, and knew in my heart what it was that was important for me to ask and know from my Heavenly Father. As I sat down to write this, it dawned on me…
I asked to know that I would be able to have children of my own. Not that I was against adoption (or other ways of conceiving, although at that time adoption was all that I knew of), but, it was important for me to be able to bear my own children. After I was married and in the hospital giving birth to my first child, we found out that I was unable to have children without having a C-Section. If I had been in an earlier time in history, or in another part of the world, I would have died trying to give birth. This wasn’t my only problem, I am also RH Negative. I have two things going against me. But, I was promised in my patriarchal blessing that I would be able to have children.
What is my Divine Nature?
My Divine Nature is to be a mother, a mother here on earth, and in the eternities. What are qualities of Divine Nature? Meek, peace, wisdom, thankful, humble, kind, merciful, forgiving, forbearing, loving, gentle, longsuffering, temperance, faith, joy, and the list goes on.
What is Divine Nature in scriptural definition:
23 And now I would that ye should be humble, and be submissive and gentle; easy to be entreated; full of patience and long-suffering; being temperate in all things; being diligent in keeping the commandments of God at all times; asking for whatsoever things ye stand in need, both spiritual and temporal; always returning thanks unto God for whatsoever things ye do receive.
24 And see that ye have faith, hope, and charity, and then ye will always abound in good works.
Read the following scriptures for a more in depth view of what Divine Nature is and means: Matthew 5:9, John 15:12, Galatians 5:22–23, Colossians 3:12–17, 1 John 4:21, and Moroni 7:44–48.
Develop your Divine Nature, your divine qualities as a daughter of God, and a mother. Take time each day to do a little better. You will be blessed, you will be made stronger, and you will feel the spirit of our Heavenly Father with you.
12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
