It Takes an Act of Faith

 

There have been times in my life when I have felt encompassed in darkness.  I have also reached the point where I have wanted and even tried to end my life… but somehow, I am still here.  I am still needed, as are you.  You are needed.  The Lord needs YOU on HIS side.

 

Family

What is most important in your life?

What is most important in your life?

Families can be together forever… they are the ones who stay around when the going gets rough.  They love you.

 

Your Potential

Are you living up to your potential?  What do you want to be?  What have been your dreams?  They don’t just fly away for something practical.  Live your dream.  “Be Alive, Find your passion, and Pursue it with all your heart.”

Don’t fall beneath your privileges or your potential.

Trials

"No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted...All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, souls, and makes us more tender and charitable...It is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we come here to acquire." -Orson F. Whitney

Each of us will experience some of these trials during our lives…The challenges we face today are in their own way similar to those challenges from the past.

The Savior is there to help.  When we come to Him, He heals us and helps us to endure our trials.

Making Friends

I think that a huge part about making friends is being a friend to yourself.  Sometimes this is not a very easy thing to do?  But how can we love others if we do not first feel love ourselves?

The two great commandments are to love God with all your heart and to love your neighbor as yourself.  In these two commandments there are three parties that require loving:  yourself, God, and your neighbor…If you had to put these in order of importance to love, what would it be?

It would be 1.  Love God 2.  Love yourself and 3.  Love your neighbor

Part of making friends is being a friend to yourself.  Happiness comes one step at a time, and it does include love.

Faith

Is this ever how you feel?
