Choose to be Happy :)


I know I have neglected to write in this in a while, but I just wanted to take the opportunity to write about something that has been running through my mind. This past week we have been studying about faith and hope as a mission. Faith has to be one of my favorite Christlike attributes to study about because it doesn't matter how many times you study it, you're always learning something new. This week I've also learned a lot about hope. I've learned that no matter what we are going through the hope of God's eternal plan is what keeps me going. We live in an imperfect world with imperfect people, but all of that is temporal. God's plan on the other hand is ETERNAL. Do we really understand what that means? I promise that if you get down on your knees and really think about God's eternal plan for you. You will see the glimpse of love our Heavenly Father has for you. The more we come understand where we are going the more we will see that life trials are only temporary. One of my favorite scriptures in the Book of Mormon is in Ether 12:14

"Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for better world, yea, even place at the right hand of God,which hope cometh of faithmaketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good worksbeing led to glorify God." 

I know that even though the hardest trails good things are ALWAYS ahead. If your struggling to have that hope today, don't give up. Just keep going!
