Just a passage I got from some reading!! I loved it and it really stood out. I guess due to my afflictions I am always going through!!
"Whenever important advances are being made by the Church, it seems that the adversary of all righteousness mounts a concerted effort to stop the growth of the Kingdom of God. But dedicated Saints of God overcome the problems and grow stronger, as did the Colesville Saints, who welded themselves into a stong and united branch"I feel this is for all for all of us!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay

I feel a little better. Today I was finally assigned visiting teachers! Yaya!! I am starting to make a few friends in the Ward!I pray it continues!!!!!
Is really tough. I have been in my Ward for a few months, and I still feel kind of like an outcast. Is this normal? I am really trying to get to know people. Thats really hard. I took my son to the Primary Ward activity night last night and he had a ball!! I love his love for the Church. he is 6 and loves to sing, have Scriptures read to him. He is gonna be a GREAT missionary some day!! I am very proud of him. Anyways, I hope I get to know some more of the ward members soon. I hate being alone. Its kind of sad. I know what it is though, the Adversary is doing this to me AGAIN to try and keep me from going to CHurch BUT it is NOT going to work this time.
wow. I have a story we went over in Sunday School yesterday and it is really sticking with me. We went over Ether 1-6. There are a few things I wanna write in my Journal about this. We mainly talked about the Brother of Jared. Hmmm, we went over his last name, but I cant remember it. Hold on, I am gonna see if I can find it online real quick. Well, no luck on that. 1st of all, in the old testoment, there is astory of the tower of babalon. The people were building the tower that goes up to heaven. If u recall, Heavenly Father messed up their language to where they could not understand one another for doing this. Many believe he did this to them because they were trying to take the hort cut to Heaven, BUT.....did u know that they made the tower waterproof? Hmmmm, this was being built after the Great Flood of Noah. Tell me this, what was Gods promise after the flood?? That hw would never again destroy the Earth by Flood....correct? So.....did he do this curse because they were taking a short cut? Or did he do it because they had no faith about what God had promised them!!?? Just a thought!! lol
aNYHOW back to Ether, Now the Brother of Jared was large and highly favored. In the book of ether Heavenly Father tells of a promised land thAt has been prepared. Now this was before the time of Nephi. He said it was the land of promise for righteous people....now, remember....Moroni is writing about this.
In vs 9 Hevenly father speaks of his return
"And the fulness of his wrath cometh upon them when they are ripened in iniquity"( the end of vs 9) Now, if u ask me, we ARE beyond ripened here on earth. It wont be long till he returns!!
Anyhow, the Lord orders them to build barges. with 2 holes in it. One at the top and one at the bottom. Can u imagine being in a barrel floating around in the ocean? I know I couldnt.
Now they were concerned about the Dark. Heavenly Father told them to come up with away about the dark. Not for him to do it. Brother of Jared said that he would have the 16 stones and Heavenly Father could light them. He made these rocks. Because of Brother of Jareds faith, Heavenly Father removed the veil and showed himself to him. He had perfect knowledge at that time. Boy I would love to have that.
While they were in the barges, they Praised the lord no matter what!!!! they kept the faith. At the end of ether. They die.
Anyhow. I really like this story. It is really sticking to me. so I figured i would right about it in my journal!!! till later.....
