Hey howdy everyone! This week has been something else I’ll tell you what! It started off kinda slow and then at the end of it all we got thrown a loop and a half. Investigators started to come out the wood works and we started to teach some legit people. Then last night I found out that my dear boy Elder McVey is getting transferred. And I will be staying in an area for longer than I have my entire mission! I love it here and the Lord is doing good things here as of late and I wish it could be with my son but I am also excited to get to work with an Elder Williams. This next transfer I think is going to be loads of fun and hopefully miracle filled!
But anyway on to a thought of a spiritual nature. This week I was listening to an awesome compilations of motivational speeches, and one line really stood out to me. It said that “Buts are an argument for our limitations. And when we argue for our limitations we get to keep them.” That hit me hard. Almost immediately the scripture in Ether 12:27 popped into my mind. “27 And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them.” Even though I have been doing better at opening my mouth more then ever I will still look at people I could talk to and say I could talk to them BUT…. and it ends up that I never do. I realized from that is though I am doing better and stepping out of my comfort zone I am still arguing for my weaknesses and by doing so I am keeping a part of myself back and not giving myself with complete faith over to the Lord and allowing him to take from me my weaknesses. So I know as you have been reading this that something has come up in your mind that you can work on and that you have butting about for awhile. Take that but and toss it out. Put your trust in the Lord and he will direct your path in leader you to be a better more able follower of Christ. Love you all and hope you have a fantastic Halloween and a great week!
“And I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then I said: here am I; send me.”
