He Has a Plan for YOU. Trust Him
This week I
learned one main thing. Heavenly Father has a plan for me specifically. I just
need to TRUST HIM.
I was reading in
the Ensign this week and I came across the talk "Your Next Step" that
was given during the priesthood session of conference and man this talk changed
my life. (Drop what you are doing and go read it) In this talk it talks about
taking your next step through Christ and relying fully on Him. Turning our will
over to Him. "We will, not, we cannot, fail if we are faithfully yoked to
the Savior--He who has never failed and will never fail us!"
A couple of weeks
ago I had a prompting to do something that was really hard for me and I really
struggled with it. I kept falling back on that "what if's" and I kept
doubting the prompting. As I was reading this talk I realized how much I was
actually doubting my Savior. I didn't know if what He had asked me to do was
right. I loved this quote so much because it is so so SO true. The savior of
the world has never failed, so why would he fail you now? Why would he ask us
to do hard things if He didn't know we could over come them and that they were
for our benefit?
Something that we
teach investigators is about the Plan of Happiness. How our Heavenly Father
loves us so much and wants us to be happy. He has an entire plan for us that is
designed to make us happy. He knows each one of us so personally that he knows
how to make us happy. He knows what we need in our lives at this very moment
that is going to make us happiest in the long run. But with him knowing
everything and knowing what things in life we are going to need to become like
Him we must trust Him.
Trusting is hard.
I know it is because sometimes I struggle with it more than I'd like to admit.
Especially these last couple of weeks, But something I love is that we are
trusting someone who knows the end result. He knows our desires and our hearts
and he knows what things we need to do to achieve exaltation and that eternal
happiness. He knows us and he knows what we need to be happy. We just need to
Going back to that
quote from conference I love that it says we cannot fail. When we are trusting
our Savior fully and giving our will to Him we cannot fail. It is impossible to
fail. When we trust him so fully we cannot fail. Even when He asks us to do
hard things. Moroni 7:33 it reads "if ye will have faith in me ye shall
have power to do whatsoever thing is expedient in me." Wow if we trust Him
and have faith that he knows best He will give us that power to do whatsoever
thing he asks of us. He promises us that we can do those hard things he asks us
to do as long as we trust Him. For "I know in whom I have trusted."
(2 Nephi 4:19)
He has a plan for
you. He loves you so much. TRUST HIM. When he asks you to do hard things trust
that he knows what you need to accomplish those hard things and that all will
work together for your benefit. He loves you.
We may have gotten
a cat stuck in our engine and we may have asked a stranger to help us and he
may have taken part of our car apart to get the cat out and we may have had a
small-ish child get in the hood of the car to get the cat out. But just
97% of the people I met this
week were named Robert. I literally could have started the conversation,
"Hi, I'm Sister Wade, let me guess your name is Robert?" and they
would have said yes. Haha
