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

0

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?

We Live Again

Who do you want to become?

I thought this was a very good question:  Who do you want to become?  As I was studying this morning, I came across this question in the Ensign magazine.  It was in this quote by Gary E Stevenson:

“Remember, what you do, where you go, and what you see will shape who you become.  Who do you want to become?”

If we ponder on that quote for a while, it makes us want to be better people.  Well, it at least makes me want to be a better person.  I am so grateful for my Heavenly Father and the love that He has bestowed upon me.  I do want to become His daughter.  I am willing to give up everything for that blessing.
