Last night I was having some serious feelings of inadequacy. Do you know what I mean? Those little things are the pits. They're dangerous and absurd, but they are real. I was upset and not in the mood to speak with anyone about the way I felt, though, I knew there was one person who could make me feel loved and I knew that I could speak to him. I got down on my knees and prayed, the way I've always been taught to do.
I am so grateful for The Atonement in my life, for its ability to heal me in both simple and complex ways. I am thankful for the two people in Heaven who wait patiently for me to come unto them for help. They live to ease my burdens. I am glad I have knowledge of that.
After I said a prayer, I opened my scriptures and found a small index card that I'd written in high school. On it were verses from Alma, chapter 37. I particularly liked verse 37:
"Counsel with the Lord in all they doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night, lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day.
I can't even remember how I found the video above, but I know that it was no coincidence.
