My life has been a bit troubled lately. I’ve felt a lot of anxiety and we’ve had a lot of big decisions to make lately (not HUGE decisions, but bigger ones). Anyway, this past week I’ve just been praying that God would give me a “wink.” I mean, I want to say a “sign” but I think that asking for signs shows a lack of faith and while I have faith in Him, sometimes I just want a little nudge that he’s watching me and he knows what I’m going through — and it will end-up fine.
Up until now I felt like life was spiraling downward. Very few positive points. On Thursday I just begged him for something — something that would say things are gonna be alright.
So I went through my fairly hectic day.
I got my wink, I won’t go into how trivial it was, but it was actually huge for me and involves our tree trimmer. I felt so thankful for that, but also felt weak for needing to ask for something like that. I should have more faith.
Then I read the Special Experiences talk in the Ensign. I felt so comforted by that talk — that God DOES give us experiences to strengthen our faith — and it’s our job to look for those things and be strengthened by them. Anyway, just my thoughts for the day. I know that a lot of people are going through very hard times right now and I thought that talk did wonders for me.
And in other news, it’s VERY HOT here. My Basil can’t tolerate it.
