there have been a lot of things on my mind lately. stress and depression started creeping in and i realized i needed to get things in order. i needed more personal spiritual time and that seemed to place everything else in order. i had more motivation to work out, i did better in school, my house was cleaner, and all 3 of us were happier in our home.
the more i grow closer to my Heavenly Father, the more blessings he's given me. i've also recognized more inspiration in my life and let him guide it and let go of my stubbornness.
in this book connie says "as our desires move from what we want to what the Lord wants for us, our lives will be more centered and balanced". this is something i've always found to be true, one of my all time favorite quotes is by ezra taft benson:
yesterday an old friend posted something i just loved and have gone back to read several times:
"Sunday School was about The Plan of Salvation. It is an intentional, thought out plan that God isn't making up as He goes. He's worked it all out, and it works. If our lives keep sucking, it's probably because we think we know better than God and do the wrong things. Until we decide to make what we want the exact same thing that God wants to give us, our lives will be a big, mostly painful waste of time. Get and stay on the right track. It's safer and it really is happier."
love that. and only a stillson can use the word "sucking" in a spiritual message, thank you audrey for posting that, and thank your beautiful mother for stating it :)
i'll sum up my own personal testimony with this small quote "it's true isn't it? so what else matters?"
