General Conference!!

Wow! Did I need that! What an amazing weekend. I felt like a sponge that had been sitting under the sink for months that had become all dried up and crusty, like I had forgotten what I was, what my purpose was. Then the music for the first session started. "Press Forward Saints, with steadfast faith in Christ..." and drop by drop I started absorbing the moisture. I began taking shape again. The fuller I got, the more I remembered. I am not some un-needed, crusty, old, dried up sponge. I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father, and He loves me. Another drop. I am a strong Christian. Another drop. I know...and I KNOW that I know. The drops were coming fast now, and things were getting much clearer and brighter. I am a lilly in my Heavenly Father's eternal field of grace and truth. My faith is not, and cannot afford to be circumstantial. Faith is a choice. There is no place in my soul for doubt, and discouragement, for these are just off-shoots of fear, fear in sheep's clothing, and faith and fear CANNOT co-exist. My future is as bright as my faith!! I do not walk alone, for Jesus Christ is standing beside me to succor me. He is my brother, and my advocate. And that, in itself, is all I need. All anyone needs. He is the Everlasting Water that fills my thirsty soul, He is my joy. And this is my testimony. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
