Tonight will be a quick post. I'm not feeling 100% and need to get to bed early. Must have been all the junk food I ate today! Trying to eat healthy but had a hard time this afternoon as I was buying goodies for my son's Scouts camp out. Here is a pic of my 11 year old and my husband tonight. Aren't they cute?!
Here are some of my favorite scriptures from today's reading.
"Yea, and it came to pass that the Lord our God did visit us with assurances that he would deliver us; yea, insomuch that he did speak peace to our souls, and did grant unto us great faith, and did cause us that we should hope for our deliverance in him."
I love how the Lord spoke PEACE to their souls in their times of trials and tribulations. I know that the Lord can do the same thing for us if we seek him. Here is a great song about Peace sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
Here is a great talk on Peace given by one of our church leaders.
ut behold, they have received many wounds; nevertheless they stand fast in that liberty wherewith God has made them free; and they are strict to remember the Lord their God from day to day; yea, they do observe to keep his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments continually; and their faith is strong in the prophecies concerning that which is to come."
"And now, except ye do repent of that which ye have done, and begin to be up and doing…"
I love this admonition! We also need to be "up and doing" in our lives. So much wisdom in those few words.
I am going to close for the night. I hope you have a great weekend!
