It has been a good week. Some miracles this week…..
We went back to Pizza Hut and saw our friends who lived in Utah! She is great and gave us some nice pastries 🙂 We will hopefully see her soon outside of work. She is really busy right now.
We have been able to meet a few less active church members and they are all great and show real intent in coming back to church!
We were able to see Kevin and Julie 3 times this week and they came to the Book of Mormon class at church during the week.
Lastly, with the summer months here, we get a lot of visitors at church and it is so great to hear other people’s experiences and take on the Gospel! I love that no matter where we go in the world the church is always there and is always the same, because God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and so is His Church and doctrine. 🙂
On Sunday, we were talking about Elder Nelson’s talk from this most recent general conference, “Drawing the Power of Jesus Christ into Our Lives.” It is an amazing talk. I love that he reminds us that Christ’s life and atonement is not an ordinary thing and we can always draw down His power in our lives so that Christ can enable us to do all things that He needs us to do and that we need to do.
“When you reach up for the Lord’s power in your life with the same intensity that a drowning person has when grasping and gasping for air, power from Jesus Christ will be yours. When the Savior knows you truly want to reach up to Him—when He can feel that the greatest desire of your heart is to draw His power into your life—you will be led by the Holy Ghost to know exactly what you should d0.”
How wonderful a promise. A promise that will never falter or flee. As we reach to the Savior, He will give us strength. We only need ask. This is an eternal promise. I think we often forget. We think I can do this. I am strong enough. We push forward. We forget that He has already done it for us. The price is paid and we need not do it alone. I know that the Savior, my brother Jesus Christ, has the power to do all things. He alone can help our week things become strong. He gives us trials so that we can learn to rely on Him and become like Him. He is forever my rock and foundation. He gives me strength, through rain and snow and all in between. He walks with me. And He can and will walk with you if you but ask Him.
I love ya’ll and hope that you know that God loves you too!
