When I first started my mission, I heard so many missionaries who were near the end of their mission say that I will learn to walk with God as I serve. I feel like I am starting to understand exactly what they mean by that!
So many times we plan and pray and hope for things to go the way WE want them to. But I know that God always has the best plan and it is often very different from ours. However, as we follow Him in faith and rely on His Son, the greatest gift he has sent to us, all will be well.
I love the opportunity I have to kneel in prayer many times each day and learn to walk with God as I communicate with Him and then finish with an 'Amen' and begin to act. It is by acting and doing that we learn to walk with God.
Another thing I have learned is that we are NEVER alone. God sent us His Son and because He was once alone in the Garden of Gethsemane, we never have to be. Turn to Him when you feel alone and when you are happy and have a heart of gratitude. It is because of Him that miracles happen. It is because of Him that we can learn to walk with God.
I know that God is in the heavens and that Jesus is the Christ. Miracles happen because His church is restored. And His church has been restored because He loves us beyond compare.
In His sacred name, Jesus Christ, Amen.
P.S. PLEASE watch the video on this page. It is all about the special conference with Elder Uchtdorf to create the Prague Stake! I was in the big meeting but you cannot see me in the video!
