Blessings Will Come After a Trial of Faith

Every day God tries to teach us little lessons. For the past two and a half years I have tried to be an exceptional listener and here is some of what I have learned.

  • Patience, patience, patience. It’s the Lord’s timing not mine.
  • Good health is something to be cherished.
  • God gives us small miracles in the mists of greater storms to help us continue on.
  • Hope and faith never fail.
  • Things are not always what they seem, don’t judge.
  • Being bitter and jealous gets you nowhere.
  • Never, ever ask “why?” it’s life, that’s why.
  • Complete trust and interdependence with your eternal companion makes everything easier.
  • The atonement brings power and peace to life.
  • When you say “Not my will, but Gods” you have to really mean it.
  • When you feel more alone than you have ever felt in your life God will embrace you.
  • Focusing on what you can control in life, rather than what you can’t, brings peace, a sense of purpose, and a renewed feeling to life.
  • God answers prayers!
