It isn’t as bad as you think…

It isn’t as bad as you sometimes think it is.
It all works out. Don’t worry. …
The Lord will not forsake us.
He will not forsake us.
If we will put our trust in Him,
if we will pray to Him,
if we will live worthy of His blessings,
He will hear our prayers.

-President Hinkley

I’ve been thinking a lot about this “life” lately. Then I came across this quote by President Gordon B. Hinkley. He IS right, it is not that bad and it WILL all work out. DO you ever feel like the world is against you? Maybe shifting your focus back to the basics is what you need. Hint: I’m secretly giving myself this advice as I type! BUT seriously, HE hears our prayers. Our prayers will be answered BUT they may not always be answered in the way you would like. Lately, I feel myself drawn away from my usual spiritual self. I don’t like it one bit. Maybe it IS because I prayed, and prayed and prayed and the answers didn’t come SO I start to slowly loose my faith. Yeah, it happens. I feel stuck in rut. AND I think my family is stuck in this rut WITH me. Womp, womp! It’s like I’ve been faced with the same heartbreak for such a long period of time, that my heart literally can’t ache anymore. It’s almost been 3 years since we decided to grow our family. Yet, we are still where we were 3 years ago, except we now have 7 angel babies in Heaven. I wouldn’t change any of those experiences I have had, because I truly feel like the person I am has changed into someone who knows your pain. Yeah I’m talking about you. I know the feeling of loss, the lump in your throat the kind where you can’t talk and only your eyes speak. When you shut off from the world because it’s too painful to see others happiness. I know all too well ALL of that pain. I may not know the reasons WHY all of this has happened and why it continues on but I know theres a plan for me. I have been told before that when you are drowning in your own sorrows, you should serve the Lord. Any kind of service like taking a family in need dinner, writing an uplifting note to a neighbor, smiling at that mom in the grocery store who might be having a bad day and so on. I have done this and it DOES work. You loose yourself when you think of others. Challenge yourself to do one act of service this week and see how you feel afterwords.
