Friday Scripture

I know I am a slack off, but the scriptures really are important. The scripture of the week is......
Alma 13:28-29
28 But that ye would humble yourselves before the Lord, and call on his holy name, and awatch and pray continually, that ye may not be btempted above that which ye can bear, and thus be cled by the Holy Spirit, becoming humble, dmeek, submissive, patient, full of love and all long-suffering;
29 aHaving faith on the Lord; having a hope that ye shall receive eternal life; having the blove of God always in your hearts, that ye may be lifted up at the last day and enter into his crest.

This is my all time favorite scripture. I love the application of it. The more we read the sciptures, the more we grow to love them.

Ok I know you are saying right now what happened to the Thursday scripture. Well I decided I will make it an every other week thing. I have had the best two days. Sunday is the best day of the week. It helps you become closer to our loving heavenly father. Their are so many things that can distract you from the bigger picture throughout the week. This blog is titled The Game of Life. I chose this title because of how important Life should be to us. The description of my blog, comes straight from my Journal. I am so glad to have a Journal, it helps me organize my thoughts, it also provides a therapy, and eases my pain, and sorrows. This last Sunday is a Sunday I will never forget. I made one of the best decisions, that will effect the rest of my life completely. That decision was to receive my patriarchal blessing. My blessing was so powerful, and I couldn't help thinking how much Heavenly Father and our Savior loves us, they know each and every one of us very well. I could tell how much our Heavenly Father loves us just through all of the blessings I received on Sunday, which will bring me even more blessings that are yet to come. Before I can receive my papers for my mission, my bishop has asked me to place a Book of Mormon. I have prayed about finding a missionary opportunity, and I will post my experience of placing that Book of Mormon. I am so glad for missionary work, and can not wait to get on the field, and serve god for two years. I love the blessings we receive through following the gospel principles, and I hope we can all live worthily so we can enter into the celestial kingdom to live in our Heavenly Fathers presence for eternity.

Thursday Scripture

I have decided to do a weekly scripture, the scriptures are an important part of daily life. I will post a new one every thursday.

Heleman 5:12
And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.

I hope this will help in our daily life. I know that the more I read the scriptures, pray and share my testimony, my foundation becomes stonger. Which helps me to fight satan with everything he pushes at me.

pounding out the notes

Music has been a very important part of my life. I have found that playing, or singing the hymns is very therapeutic. Music is such a blessing in our lives. In a way life is a lot like learning a new song every day. When you first start out a song, you don't play it very well, but once you practice the parts that are hard and keep at them, you will find that you can play that song better. Their are a lot of rough spots in life. If you work hard on a certain area that you are struggling with you will soon get better with whatever it is. I have found that in my life, the more you work on a weakness, the stronger you become. It may hurt at the time you are going through it, but once you are done the joy is very great. Just like on the piano, the notes start out all wrong and it is frustrating to play that song, but once you work at it, the song turns into a masterpiece. I love the trials we have been given, because every trial is a blessing, and we learn so much from each and every one of them. I hope that we can all make it through our trials, and return to our heavenly father again. He means so much to me. I know that he cares for each and every one of us, and I love him very much.

Finding Myself

I am feeling so lost in this little world of ours. I heard that sometimes you have to lose yourself completely, before you can find yourself. Life is such a difficult game. I cant imagine how much harder it could be without our loving savior. I know that our heavenly father cares about each and every one of us. I can really feel the pull of Satan tugging on me like he has never done before. I know that the force of Satan is the strongest right before, and after your mission. I just never imagined it to be this hard, everyday I face a new difficulty. As he pulls at me, and tries to push me in the wrong direction, the more I want to do what is right. Every time he pulls and pushes me though I feel a part of me falling away. Each day seems to get darker, and scarier. I love my heavenly father so much, and I know that he cares much about me. I just want Satan to leave me alone, I feel like a mess right now, and I am not quite sure what to do with myself. I love having personal prayer with our heavenly father to keep me focused on the right path. I love writing in my journal, although I don't do it often, because every time I write, I have the savior in my thoughts.I am so excited for the time to turn in my mission papers, and can not wait to get on the mission field. "For behold the field is white already to harvest, and lo he that thrusteth in his sickle with his might the same layeth up in store that he perisheth not but bringeth salvation to his soul" (D&C 4:4). I am so glad of all the things I have been blessed with. I know that our heavenly father cares, and wants us all to return to him someday. No matter how bad Satan tries to tempt us, he has no power over us. I love the gospel, and I try to live by it the best I can. I cant wait to find myself on my mission.
