So much noise

Satan is working diligently on me to tear me down bit by bit. Unfortunately, I'm letting him.

He infiltrates our lives in different ways. For some it's the Word of Wisdom. For others, pornography. For me, it's my self worth. The worse I feel about myself, the tighter the grip Satan has over me, and the easier it is for him to drag me down.

It's times like these when I need to have my Patriarchal Blessing at the ready. It's times like these when I need to remember that those thoughts are not from God. The Lord doesn't make mistakes, and I am no exception. I have a purpose and a mission on this earth at this time. I can be exactly what somebody else needs.

Despite the fact that I occasionally feel abandoned and incredibly lonely, I must remember that the Lord's love is above all else. How selfish am I that I require more?

"And I will also ease the burdens which are put upon your shoulders, that even you cannot feel them upon your backs, even while you are in bondage; and this will I do that ye may stand as witnesses for me hereafter, and that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit my people in their afflictions." (Mosiah 24:14)

What a powerful scripture. But what I enjoy the most is at the end of verse 15.

"...and they did submit cheerfully and with patience to all the will of the Lord." (Mosiah 24:15)
