"And this is not all. Do ye not suppose that I know of these things for myself? Behold, I testify unto you that I do know that these things I have spoken are true. And how do ye suppose that I know of their surety? 46. Behold, I say unto you they are made known unto me by the Holy Spirit of God... 48. I say unto you, that whatsoever I shall say unto you, concerning that which is to come, is true; and I say unto you, that I know that Jesus Christ shall come, yea, the Son, the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace, and mercy, and truth. And behold, it is he that cometh to take away the sins of the world, yea, the sins of every man who steadfastly believeth on his name. 49. And now I say unto you that this is the order after which I am called, yea, to preach unto my beloved brethren."
"Come unto Christ and be perfected in him and deny yourselves of all ungodliness."
Happy New Years! Its only day four of 2016! Can you believe it!!
going by so fast already! ;) haha, nah just kidding. This year
been great so far though!
This week was interesting. I reflected a lot on good ol’ 2015
and I am
not gonna lie, it was a great year; one that will probably make
books as one of my most favorite years of my life. Besides
raddest people ever at BYUI, and all the adventures I had with
and getting my mission call, and actually starting my mission,
my favorite year, because I personally found how to come closer
Jesus Christ. There were many things that I struggled with
coming out on my mission, as everyone does, but I am so happy
know how to handle those struggles now, and it’s so easy to get
through! It’s because of Him :) Every progression I make in my
give all credit to Him, because I am weak and I would be so lost
without Him. So I am here on my mission for Him, and there is a
really like that I recently heard, "This is the beginning
of a new
day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it-
use it for good, but what I do today is important because, I am
exchanging a day of my life for it! When tomorrow comes this day
be gone forever, leaving in its place something I have traded
I want it to be gain and not loss; good and not evil; success
failure, so that I shall not regret the price that I have paid
it." (Dr. H. Wilson)
Each day that we live is precious, it is a gift, and I am not
going to waste it worrying about the past or the future.I am going to be learning from the past,
working hard now, to reach my goal for my future.
