Hey hey hey,
TYPHOON MEGI!!! wooohooo should be here tomorrow. Biggest Hurricane of the year. so stoked!
Yet while there may be thorns and disappointments while there may be heartache even heartbreak there can be peace and comfort and strength from the lord for those who follow him. for it is the lord himself who said:
"Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and i will give you rest" " take my yoke upon you and learn and learn of me, for i am meek and lowly in heart and ye shall find rest unto your souls"
It is the lord who has said that if we keep the commandments the holy ghost shall be our constant companion ( dnc 121:26 ) to buoy us up to teach us, lead us, comfort us, and sustain us. to obtain this companionship we need to ask for it, to live it, and to be loyal to the lord.
I think that mormon knew very well from his own experience the truth of his words that the : comforter filleth with hope and perfect love, which love endureth by dilligence unto prayer until the end shall come, when all the saints shall dwell with god" Though we may sometimes be alone while among those of the world weneed not be lonely for the lord has given us the holy ghost to be our companion to walk with us.
In addition the lord has given us others with whom we may associate and thereby build up our spirits and strengthen our courage disciples of like mind, oflike heart, of like spirit. As the apostle paul said we ne longer need be strangers... but fellowcitizens with the saints and of the household of god". to the thessalonians he wrote of sustaining one another:
" Where for comfort yourselvestogether and edify one another... and we beseech you to know them which labour among you.... and to esteem them very highly in love for their works sake"
Though discipleship with the lord requires times of standing humbly and courageiously apart the lord will not forsake us. He also given us the association of others who can edify and strengthen us as we go about our work of blessings others in the world. And if we are prayerful and loyal to him and his commandments the lords promise can be applicable to us. I will go before your face. "I will be on your right hand and your left and my spirit shall be in your hears and mine angels round about you to bear you you!!!!!" (dnc 84:88 one of my favs ) This is a promise from the lord. I believe it. and beartestimony of it. The lordand always will bless you as you step out of the darkness of the world into the light of the everlasting gospel. May he bless us all to walk humbly and courageously and to know in our hearts that peace which comes from squaring ones life with principle the peace which passeth all understanding ( Philip 4:7)
