I hope you are all having a great Wednesday! It's been a good day for me. I got up and played tennis this morning while my kids had their lessons. Then I took some of the kids school shopping. Only 3 weeks left! Tonight we had a Relief Society Pool Party Social. Of course, I was the only woman who did a cannon ball into the pool! LOL! Someone had to do it, right? Just wanted to share that I made a new friend this past week and a half. I feel the Lord has heard and answered my prayers, even if it took 4 years. I am thankful for this new and lasting friendship. I am also thankful for my other good friends near and far.
I wanted to share our "Scripture of the Day". This scripture is an invitation to all. We can all seek and find our own answers through prayer and faith.
Okay, for today's reading we only have 2 chapters. In chapter 24 Nephi is still quoting Isaiah. I will share my favorite scripture from that chapter and then we will move on to chapter 25.
2 Nephi 24:3
"And it shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall give thee rest, from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve."
The thought that jumped into my mind when I was reading this scripture was to hang in there because good things are to come. What a great message of hope that is!
I highlighted many verses in chapter 25. I encourage you to also mark up your scriptures. Highlight, underline, make notes in the margins, etc. Here are some that I marked that I will share with you.
2 Nephi 25:23
"For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do.
"And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins."
LOVE that scripture!
2 Nephi 25:29
"And now behold, I say unto you that the right way is to believe in Christ, and deny him not; and Christ is the Holy One of Israel; wherefore ye must bow down before him, and worship him with all your might, mind, and strength, and your whole soul; and if ye do this ye shall in nowise be cast out."
Last night the missionaries stopped by to say hi. What a blessing it is to have the Lord's servants serving our family.
I will "see" you all tomorrow! Please leave a comment with your thoughts. I would love to hear them!
