I haven’t posted in a while because I have so busy at BYU-I! By the way, it is amazing here, and I love it. Lately, I have been thinking long and hard about what I was going to blog about.
This week I found myself feeling alone. I had to make some really hard decisions that were really hard. Because of that I was able to learn a very valuable lesson. We have to put God first. I was wandering lost all week. I didn’t know where to go. Desperately, I knelt down and prayed. I learned Heavenly Father has a path for us, and he has given us ways to stay on this path, but we have to make the steps to continue on the path. Once I let God re-enter my life I was given knew eyes to see how truly amazing my life is.
Here is an example:
This week I slipped on some stairs and sprained my foot. Before I knew it I was wearing a boot and I was on crutches. In that moment I was given the opportunity to feel sorry for myself or I look at the blessing. I definitely went back and forth. When I prayed and asked for guidance a miraculous thing happened. I was able to see how many people were caring for me. I wasn’t truly able to see this until I stepped out of my negativity. I noticed how many people offered to help me. I would be crutching all over campus and multiple times people would come up to me and ask to carry my back pack, or hold open the door. I even had people offering to carry me up the stairs! My amazing friends were continuously there for me. Even through my mood swings! I noticed that I wasn’t truly alone. I just had to open my eyes and look on the bright side!
Here is a Mormon Message that really goes along with this: Please watch! It’s worth it!
