What would you say if you met your Maker today?

Dear Friend,
 Whoa, we're going deep today. I have to admit, I've been sitting on this question for a few weeks now. Its a hard question to answer, but I'll try.

If I were to die today and stand before my Savior, in my mind's eye I can see Him and I together clear as day. In this imaginary moment I look so small, perhaps it is my feelings of humility or unworthiness to be in His presence that cause me to shrink. Either way, I look up at Him, the worry clearly displayed on my face as all my shortcomings and sins run through my mind in an instant. Why couldn't I have been better? Why did it take me so long to learn those lessons? I'm rapidly recognizing that I didn't do enough to get to where I've always wanted to go.I've strayed too many times, and learned too few of the lessons I needed to. My heart sinks and my head drops to my chest, and all I can say is: "I tried my best". I feel the tears run from my eyes and I wait for His judgement. It's then that He steps a little closer and extends His hands, palms up, exposing the prints in His hands. I look up at His face and He smiles as if to say: "It's ok, I did it for you."
 
Some friends have expressed that they feel Mormons are trying to earn their way into heaven--we all know that isn't possible. But as I imagine standing in front of my Savior, who did everything for me, I have to wonder,"how much more remorseful would I be if I didn't at least try to be better for Him?"

With much love,
Miss Mormon
