In honor of this Sabbath Day, I put together a little ditty of my singing the soprano, alto, and tenor parts of Nearer My God to Thee.  It’s not perfect, but I think it sounds pretty enough.  I hope you enjoy.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I get sad and start to panic when I start to think that this hope I have in my heart is based on nothing, except simple hope.  And I start to get scared, and my hope and my optimism - the two things You love the most about me - starts to wane.  And I start to fear.

And then I have to remind myself that I have Your word.  

In the past few months, I’ve been blessed to receive many promptings from the Spirit, but I’ve lacked the courage and strength to follow them.  And they always turned out to be correct.  And if I had just followed the Spirit, then I wouldn’t be where I am now.

So now, whenever the feelings of fear and panic and sadness and anxiety start to creep up on me, I have to remind myself not to ignore Your promises and promptings anymore.  Because ignoring them only leads to the heartache that I’m experiencing now.

I simply need the patience to wait…

…and what a test of patience this will be.

I trust you and I love you, Lord.  And I know you will not lead me astray. 

I say these things in the name of my savior, Jesus Christ.  Amen.

This might be really bold of me to say, but … sometimes it seems like I’m a rarity, and others think I’m in the wrong, when I’m not afraid to blatantly ASK Heavenly Father for the noble and worthwhile things I desire.  He has promised us specific blessings in the scriptures, and, if I am true to the commandments and His word, I full well intend on asking for these blessings.  It’s an interesting limbo, being able to submit to his will and then, on the flip side, asking for specifics, but in the end, I might be being bold, but I trust God… and I know he trusts me too. :)

"Do you feel the Lord’s love in your life? How I feel His love may be different from how you experience it. The key is to come to understand how you feel that love. And once you’ve felt it, be willing to share it."

SUGGESTIONS!

I just showed my mom some of the .gifs I posted, and she says they need to be more uplifting and positive.

Send me some LDS quotes, scriptures, or general awesomeness for some new .gifs.  What are your suggestions?  What are your favorite passages and quotes?

Arise and come forth unto me, that ye may thrust your hands into my side, and also that ye may feel the prints of the nails in my hands and in my feet, that ye may know that I am the God of Israel, and the God of the whole earth, and have been slain for the sins of the world.
3 Nephi 11:14
