Mysteries of God

What are the mysteries of God??  I found myself pondering the question"what are the mysteries of God"?  Of course this obscured question is out of bounds for such a young person as I, but it seemed to me there is some kind of resolution to my questioning.  I was reading in the Book of Mormon and I read over a passage in Alma 26:22 which says; —"Yea, he that repenteth and exerciseth faith, and bringeth forth good works, and prayeth continually without ceasing—unto such it is given to know the mysteries of God; yea, unto such it shall be given to reveal things which never have been revealed . . ." 


 I asked, what things are to be revealed?  Am I to have some glorious epiphany and Heavenly Father hands me all the secrets in the world?  I don't think so. God wants me to learn and understand life a little better before he starts enlightening me about the next ice age or whatever it may be —guess you could call it "trial and error".

 I believe to "know" the mysteries of God is to "know" yourself.  We are his children, He loves us, He created us, but we don't know ourselves as well as He certainly does.

  The gospel of Jesus Christ is Faith, repentance, baptism, receiving he gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end, by bringing forth "good works".
  Faith is to trust him, Know He will provide, believing he will guide you through stressful challenges.  
Through faith you will have the desire to repent and change your life, to allign your will with his.
  By these simple actions we can learn and gain the mysteries of God by having personal revelation, growing in maturity, finding gifts God has given you, and most important improving your Christlike attributes.   
The mysteries of God are within us all; prayeth continually "without ceasing" have faith you will be led to know yourself and know the mysteries in your own life.  Repent, change and bring forth good fruit so you may know the mysteries of God.   Find mysteries of God within yourself, we have them and we are His children.
