So I have been in the house now for two weeks because the comp is a lil mal but I have had many opportunities to study the scriptures and to study the conference talks(which by the way get a whole lot more meaningful when you are on the mish…). Since i am permitted to say whatever I want in these emails, I will share with you a part of the talk by Prez Eyring in the Saturday morning sesh
“And if thou draw thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness shall be as noon day” isaiah 58:10.
This scripture about the ordinance of fasting hit me so hard that i almost cried… as we all has the opportunity to fast yesterday did we all feel our light grow? Did we feel the loving arms of our father carry us through the fast? I know I did… as I have been sick for a good while now. I have time and time again tried to fast but could never complete and yesterday for the first time in months, I was able to complete the fast that I had started! I testify that I know that the fast not only help others but strengthens our light, gives us the hope to know that what we are doing is the will of the one true God!
As I have been able to come to know my Father, I have realized that the things He asks really are not much of us. We are not asked to walk 1000 miles across frozen ground. we are simply asked to go without food for 24 hours so that other will be able to have some. We are not asked to give more than what we have and if we are is because we will receive something greater after. What I want to people to remember is that we can become more for the Lord to use to further His work or we can be as the man that buried his mite and brought back only what He gave…but I know we are all capable to bring back more:)
I have seen miracles I can not deny. Like Joseph smith “I knew and I knew God knew and I can not deny!”
