Don't forget your purpose
Monday Oct 10 2016

There is so much reward in purposely putting your focus on the positive and thinking thoughts centered in Christ.

This week was great! My dad gave me wise advice to just pray and thank God for everything in my life and blessings, and to not end my prayer until I have thanked Him for everything.

So, the first thing I did on Tuesday morning for my personal study, was kneel in prayer, as I left it open and opened my eyes to start writing everything, I felt a strong impression that I needed to write about all of my life, from as early as I can remember, until now. I am so amazed at the many things the spirit helped me to remember that gave me so much comfort as I was feeling a bit frustrated.

Do we actually take the time to recognize our blessings and gifts and most importantly, the love we receive so mercifully from God?
Are we only focusing on the tiny black dot on the pure white wall?
Do we sincerely want to be happy trying to do Gods will and not our own, or are we contently living in our own heads?

I challenge you all to write as many memories you can, starting with a prayer for the help of the Lord as you write. I promise that as you do this, you will be happier, and more sincere with those around you because all you will want to do is bless others, and as you try to bless others, our LOVING Heavenly Father, will bless you.

Alma 1:30
And thus, in their prosperous circumstances, they did not send away any who were naked, or that were hungry, or that were athirst, or that were sick, or that had not been nourished; and they did not set their hearts upon riches; therefore they were liberal to all, both old and young, both bond and free, both male and female, whether out of the church or in the church, having no respect to persons as to those who stood in need.

I love you all so much and know that God does too. Don't forget your purpose, and if you haven't figured out your purpose just yet, you will only find it in Christ, so lose yourself in Him, and He will show it unto you.

something my companion helped me learn, was the thoughts that we are having, who are they coming from?

The answer will be found in the way you feel.
If you feel peace, confidence, happiness, motivation, etc. = God
Or if you feel, angry, anxious, anxiety, frustrations, discouragement, etc. = Satan

Be careful to whose counsel you heed.

We have also been writing down, at least, one miracle every night and it has changed my view from the black dot to the rest of the white wall. Try it!!!

Have a great week!
