I am still loving the mountains, my area, my companion, everything! Yesterday, Ami received a calling in the young women's presidency and both of her sons passed us the sacrament. It was so cool!!!!! They are loving reading the scriptures, praying, and serving in the gospel. I love this family with all my heart and never want to leave them!
This week, my companion and I have been thinking a lot about our individual potential. Who were we before we came to Earth? How did we progress? Why are we here? What is our purpose? Many times, we sell ourselves short and do not think we are worthy of great things. We often do not push ourselves because we think we are meant to be ordinary or that we weren't made for great things. This is false, because we all have a great potential and plan for us. The only way to achieve this potential is to come unto Christ and allow Him to mold and change us. If we made our own life plan, it would be very different than His plan for us.
When we understand better who we are and where we came from, we are more confident AND humble before the Lord. There is a grand link between confidence and humility. Humility does not mean selling ourselves short. Humility means recognizing where our true strength comes from and that the Lord will prepare us for all He needs us to do. It means developing our talents and abilities to serve the Lord and our fellow men. We can be both humble and confident, humble and courageous, humble and happy, humble and everything!... all because we know we are children of God and He loves us immensely and wants us to achieve.
There is a talk that has really changed some things for me and I hope everyone reads it!!! The link is below:"Approaching the throne of God with Confidence"
Hope everyone has an excellent week. Love you!!
