How I love my Savior!
There are so many small evidences of His love, so many times I know He knows my name and my heart. It is in these moments that I have a small glimpse of what He did for me. My heart feels that deep, enduring love.
For quite some time we have been carrying a load that has felt like more than we can hold up. We have had moments when the load is lightened, and more moments when we have been given even more. It has felt like our knees would buckle under the pressure. In our hearts and in our minds there have been many moments we could not make sense of anything, let alone add one more puzzle to figure out.
At times I have struggled with feelings of inadequacy, weakness, anger and frustration. These feelings have done nothing to bring me the strength and peace my soul craves.
Each time I have arrived at our breaking point, I have felt of His love and the enabling power offered through the Atonement. Healing has come into my heart and taken all of the feelings that keep me from moving forward.
Grace is beautiful!
I am confident in saying that this time in our lives is, and will always be sacred, because we have seen Him reach down and lift us time and time again. I have spent days in prayer asking for guidance, because I don’t know what to do, how to do it, and what to say. Every time I have spoken these pleas out loud or in my heart, I have known deep down that Heavenly Father hears and through Him my answers come.
The peace I have felt in my heart today has been quiet, but real. It can only come from One who knows.
