I was thinking the other day ...as I was reading and stuff. So many people complain about how hard life is. How they just don't have time to do what Members of The Church of Jesus Christ do. That really made me sad. I feel like the REASON I'm able to be who I am and do what I do is because of the Church. I mean let's be honest... LIFE IS HARD. How much more difficult would life be without the knowledge of the Plan of Salvation?
THE LITERAL PLAN OF HAPPINESS PEOPLE.
Without the knowledge of this Plan God has created for us.
I would have no idea
WHERE I AM GOING
WHERE I CAME FROM
OR WHY ON EARTH I'M EVEN HERE!!
The Plan is Joyful. I know who I am. I know my potential. I know I can make choices with full confidence in the Lord. That he will provide a way for me! I was reading in Ether 12:11 and it mentions "a more excellent way." Gods Plan really is a more excellent way. If we Keep the Commandments we will be directed to it and he will provide.
THAT IS A PROPHETIC PROMISE FROM THE SCRIPTURES!
A more Excellent way. How cool? I agree.
I NEVER planned on Serving a Mission. I had a very different plan. Really. But my life came to a point where I needed to start making decisions. I knew God had a plan. But I had a plan too. I did not know at that time or even realize God had a more Excellent plan for ME personally.
Now I am out here serving MY mission. After months and months of LEAPS of FAITH. Putting my TRUST in the Lord. I've seen Gods more Excellent plan unravel right in front of me! I've met people who have changed my life. Some by watching and experiencing their GOOD examples and others by watching and experiencing their BAD examples. I've learned many things I never could have back at home being so caught up and focused on the world and the social aspect of life.
I more fully understand NOW who I am. I know that God needs to fulfill more important purposes. I understand there are greater things in this life to come. My relationship with Heavenly Father has magnified times a million. My mission has been HARD. Guess what? Life is hard!! There have been times when I've wanted to give up. BUT we keep going. Why do we do it? Because we learn. We Change and We Grow. We Become Better. I love the Plan of Salvation because it really IS Gods more excellent plan. Just like how MY Mission was Gods more excellent plan for me personally.
That is my message for you today.
I love you all. Keep sending letters and love.
