Who We Truly Are

Who We Truly AreTonight I was reminded of a deep and powerful truth and I felt like I needed to share….like somebody needed to hear it too.

In the Pearl of Great Price, God reveals himself to Moses. As He is speaking with Moses there are many times when God refers to Moses as, “my son.” He could have called Moses anything, and yet God chose to show Moses who he truly is…a son of God.

It would be easy to pass this story off and say that He has never spoken to me face-to-face, so what would it mean for me? Yet, the deep meaning here is the most powerful knowledge that we could ever have…

We are His.

We are His daughters.

We are His sons.

We are His.

As such, we have divinity within us. We have the capabilities to face things that feel bigger than us and overcome. We have the gifts to do more than we ever thought we had power to do. We have the knowledge that there is someone greater than everything who loves us deeply.

There have been many times that I have forgotten this reality. As I have allowed this knowledge to fade from my heart, I have seen firsthand the sadness, fear, anxiety, loneliness and heartache that takes it place. I know I cannot live without Him there.

So many of life’s problems come when we forget who we truly are. Yet, so many of life’s problems are overcome when we remember and trust.

Because we are His, we have within us the strength to overcome, the power to move forward, the gift to change and the ability to see. There is nothing He would have us do that we cannot accomplish. We are truly powerful.

It is truly humbling to my heart to think that I have a portion of who He is within me, especially when I see my weaknesses and know that I have so far to go. The beauty is…He sees this all too and offers His strength freely. Freely.

How thankful I am for the beautiful reminder that penetrated my heart.

I am His.

I am a daughter of God.

Pushing A Rock

file0001500131478A few months ago my Mom shared a story she had heard in church with me. It is something that I have thought a lot about as we have worked through our strengthening opportunity.

The story goes like this (please bear in mind that this is a retell of a retell): (more…)

Game Changer

55“A strong testimony is the unshakable foundation of a secure, meaningful life where peace, confidence, happiness, and love can flourish. It is anchored in a conviction that an all-knowing God is in command of His work. He will not fail. He will keep His promises.” ~ Elder Richard G. Scott (more…)

Hitting the Wall

It happens so often, I think I have a magnet pulling me toward the ever present wall. Now before you think I run into the real walls in my house, I will clarify. The walls I am talking about are the ones that come out of nowhere and knock you on your butt! These symbolic wonders are incredible with the way they show up out of the blue.file9061285884520

It is a phenomenon that occurs quite frequently in life. Today is a day when I have bounced off a couple of these walls. I got up feeling amazing. The day is gorgeous and full of potential. There is so much I can get done. Even though the tasks may be on the mundane side of things (sweeping, cleaning, laundry) I am pretty excited to feel the satisfaction that comes with accomplishment.

Here I am just doing my thing and WHAM there it is. The wall came out of thin air and knocked me down. (more…)

Hello My Name Is…

Camomille_3Yesterday my husband shared a new (to me) song. It has caused a fair amount of reflection in my heart. He is fabulous, because he knows that music inspires my thoughts and writings. He is always looking for ways to inspire and help me (he is a keeper for sure). (more…)
