... a thought...

So, as many already know, my sister is getting married in like 3 weeks! Things are getting rather crazy around our place and since I'm doing lots of the decorating, I'm starting to feel rather stressed too... well, I wish I could say I was perfect, but of course we all know that I'm far from it - which means that I have been neglecting my scripture reading, which means I am captain cranky pants lately...

This morning I decided that 5 min wouldn't make or break my schedule and I sat down to read from the Book of Mormon. I can't tell you the difference it has made! Well, to top that off, I was reading an email from my cousins son, who is currently serving a mission in Australia. He sends a mass email once a week and my cousin forwards it to me. It's funny how his little thoughts have been a real pick me up at times. Gotta love missionaries :)

Well, the thought I had was this one... in this email from Elder Jones, he mentions that if we all would pray with more faith to do what the Lord asks, we would have more confidence, etc. He mentioned the fact that Joseph Smith went into the grove with a sincere faith and desire to really do whatever it was the Lord asked him to do. Now, I may be on my own here, but I've always had this idea in my head that Joseph Smith must have had way more faith than I'll ever have - I mean he was the prophet of the restoration! But it dawned on me, that he didn't have any more faith that I can have! The difference was he was sent here to fulfill a different mission and purpose than me. I guess that means that if I had the faith and it was according to the plan, I could have the same experiences that he did... That makes me want to do better with the whole scripture reading, faith based prayers, etc. EVEN when I'm stuck planning a wedding, and feeling stressed out... I have the same potential and capacity! Just a thought... what do you think?
