We should not only pray, we should also act on what we are praying for.
There is always the hope, and often it is true, that one with an open mind may admit one simple thought: “Could it possibly be true?” Combine that thought with sincere prayer, and one more soul enters a private sacred grove to find the answer to “Which of all the churches is true, and which should I join?”
Brethren and sisters, never be ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Never apologize for the sacred doctrines of the gospel.
Never feel inadequate and unsettled because you cannot explain them to the satisfaction of all who might inquire of you.
Do not be ill at ease or uncomfortable because you can give little more than your conviction.
Be assured that, if you will explain what you know and testify of what you feel, you may plant a seed that will one day grow and blossom into a testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
—Boyd K. Packer
The Only True Church
Whenever I see fml I think it stands for feed my llama and it either makes the post confusing or awesome.
This is making me picture an Inca Jesus. “If ye love me, feed my llamas.”
You don’t serve a mission for the blessings you’ll receive, though they are many. You do it for the blessings you’ll get to bestow.
*ahem* I have an announcement.
I started my mission papers yesterday.
Our task is to become our best selves. One of God’s greatest gifts to us is the joy of trying again, for no failure ever need be final.
We get nearer to the Lord through music than perhaps through any other thing except prayer.
I have tried to imagine our Lord and Exemplar, Jesus Christ, bustling between meetings or multitasking to get a list of urgent things accomplished.
I can’t see it.
Instead I see the compassionate and caring Son of God purposefully living each day. When He interacted with those around Him, they felt important and loved. He knew the infinite value of the people He met. He blessed them, ministered to them. He lifted them up, healed them. He gave them the precious gift of His time.
I was going to fast tomorrow (today?) but it’s 12am and in lieu of any dinner I’ve been eating chocolate since I got home from work a couple of hours ago. Not sure what do… :/
