Hey everyone! 3.20.17
This week has been an incredible week! I would sum it all up in this scripture from Isaiah chapter 55 verse 8-9 it says, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts."
Heavenly Father knows what we need way more than we do and all we need to do is trust him. At the start of last week our friend Robin texted us and said she had something she wanted to tell us but that she wanted to do it in person. With all of the crazy things that we have had happen with our friends in the last couple of weeks we were pretty worried. We tried to not think about it but it was very hard not to.
As we went to the lesson she shared with us her powerful journey through the gospel. She said that through her 3 years investigating the church she has felt that she was truly putting all her trust in the Lord by stepping out of the boat and walking on the water with him. The she said but after our visit last week I realized I was telling the Lord I trusted him while I was still hanging onto the boat with one hand. She said," I haven't fully let go, so that's why I...... I'VE PICKED MY BAPTISMAL DATE!!!!" She decided at that moment she would fully let go of the boat and trust the in the path the Lord had led her to.
It was so profound the way she had put it. So many times I think I do that where I say I am trusting the Lord while I keep one leg on solid ground. When we fully decide to rely on the Lord that is when we are able to receive all of the blessings God has in store for us. I know it can be hard and I think it is something we are all trying to work on but I know as we work hard and do our best the Lord will bless us. I know that this gospel is true! I hope you have a great week!
Oh! The snow storm wasn't too bad. They had us stay off the road until 2:30 and then we just had to be home by 8 pm instead of 9 for 2 days. We got about 6 inches?
