Not a whole lot happened this week. We just watched the re-broadcast of General Conference and heard important messages from the Prophet and the leaders of the Church. I'm amazed that at their age, they seem pretty stronger than normal. I know that they are blessed because they follow the Law of Health that Heavenly Father gave us.
Like what Prophet Thomas S. Monson said in the Priesthood Session
Every commandment we follow, there will be equivalent or greater than promise blessings. It is also through our obedience to the laws and commandments, we can receive blessings.
Of course, I have heard talks that I felt special to me that it hit my heart. I can say that they are delicious to my mind and delightful to my soul. I have felt they their talks were really inspired to help each one of us, member of the Church or not.
These are some:
Brethren, the appeal I am making tonight is for you to lift your vision of home teaching. Please, in newer, better ways see yourselves as emissaries of the Lord to His children. That means leaving behind the tradition of a frantic, law of Moses–like, end-of-the-month calendar in which you rush to give a scripted message from the Church magazines that the family has already read. We would hope, rather, that you will establish an era of genuine, gospel-oriented concern for each member, watching over and caring for each other in compassionate ways, addressing spiritual and temporal needs in any way that helps.
The doctrine of Christ … is the means—the only means—by which we can obtain all the blessings made available to us through Jesus’s Atonement. It is the doctrine of Christ that allows us to access the spiritual power that will lift us from our current spiritual state to a state where we can become perfected like the Savior.
So how can we apply the doctrine of Christ more fully in our lives? One way would be to make a conscious effort each week to prepare for the sacrament by taking some time to prayerfully consider where we most need to improve. We could then bring a sacrifice of at least one thing that keeps us from being like Jesus Christ to the sacrament altar, pleading in faith for help, asking for necessary spiritual gifts, and covenanting to improve during the coming week. As we do so, the Holy Ghost will come into our lives to a greater degree, and we will have additional strength to overcome our imperfections.
I have received many spiritual impressions that I wrote in my Studu journal. Hopefully looking for opportunities to use it in teaching and in sharing the gospel to others.
