“I am thinking about my grandfather who died three years ago and lived what I believe was an examplary life. If I look at the timeline of his life, what he was doing at my age, etc. and the progression he made, and how little I have made….I begin to wonder if there comes a point in life where you may progress but have fallen too far behind to reach the veil and Savior (as described in the temple) in this life. Coupled with that thought, is this…I have heard that for souls in the spirit world, progress is more difficult. Repentance and change is easier in this life, in which we have a physical body and a world designed to maximize our growth. However, the next life requires a more prolonged process of growth because of the absence of the mortal body. All of this ultimately creates an urgency in my heart to change/repent. I wonder if there is scriptural basis for these “fears” or if these are qualified as “doubts” due to lack of faith.”
