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.

The things that matter most

8

 

Life is full of things.  Those things that are good.  Those things that are better; and those things that are best.  Which are we filling our life with?  I know that as I study the scriptures and as I am working to deepen my relationship with others, I am doing those things that matter most.

 

Suffering in Silence

Do you ever feel like you are suffering in silence? Has a loved one just died and no one really seems to understand? Have you just not been able to be happy lately? Or perhaps no one really seems to be your friend…

Recently, I have felt this way. That is I have felt that I am suffering in silence. I don’t want people to know how I am really doing. I am supposed to be happy, right? Today I went to the pharmacy to pick up some medicines that I sent a prescription request to my psychiatrist, but they denied the refill… I just came home and cried. I have an appointment on the third, which really isn’t that far away, but it is that much longer of me not feeling up to par and having to ‘act’ my way through. Good thing I took acting classes in college…

But honestly, we do not need to suffer in silence. I have felt the love of God. He will help and direct us. He sent His Son to die for us not only to forgive us of our sins but to heal us from our hurt and pain. He loves us. He is truly there for us.

This movie has been more than inspiring to me. I hope you also enjoy. There are still happy moments in life. I know that God lives and that He is there for us so that we do not need to suffer in silence.

Where are we going anyway?

I love how the little girl in this picture is touching the scar on Christ's hand.  He has repeatedly shown His love to us.  He knows us personally and has gone through all that we have gone through because of the atonement.  I am so grateful for my Savior.

Have you ever wondered where you are goiong in life? If your life even has a purpose? Or what’s the point of even being here? I know I have…And I have found comfort in the Lord’s plan of salvation. I have found comfort and answers in His scriptures. He does love us and He has a plan for each one of us. As we listen to the Holy Spirit, we can be assured that what we are doing is following the Lord’s plan for us.

Crying…

God knows what He wants us to be… sometimes we have tears on our side.

As Simple as a Smile

People NEED you. Did you know that? People need to hear of your struggles and know of your successes in life. Life is such a precious gift… and this comes from one who has tried to take her own life before…It is a precious gift. I am so grateful to be alive today because of Christ and because of the smiles that I received and the love I have felt from others.

Christ is holding you. He understands. He knows.

The Blessings of the Scriptures

The Scriptures are a huge blessing in my life.

The Bible and other Scripture

I am extremely grateful for the opportunity and the blessing that I have to read from the scriptures.  I am so thankful for those who have sacrificed so that I may be able to have the scriptures in my life.  They are such a blessing to me as I read and partake of their goodness.  They truly lighten my life and comfort me in times of anguish.  They are a source of faith and hope for me in times of fear.

I invite you each to watch this video about the sacrifices some have gone through so that we each may have the blessings of the scriptures in our lives each day.
