I was looking through Notes on my phone and came across a lot of quotes and things I have written to myself…pep-talks I guess you could say and small moments of inspiration. I thought I would share them with you and you can look at them too when you need a little boost…
“little by little his heart changed”
Be peaceful. You are doing better than you think you are.
And then shall ye know, or by this shall you know, all things whatsoever you desire of me, which are pertaining unto things of righteousness, in faith believing in me that you shall receive.” (D&C 11:12–14.)9
Perhaps what this world needs, as much as anything, is to “look up” as the Psalmist said—to look up in our joys as well as our afflictions, in our abundance as well as in our need. We must continually look up and acknowledge God as the giver of every good thing and the source of our salvation.
“God will help you bring down those walls and those fears”
“Seeing with only the natural eye and natural heart will not get you very far and reveals that you don’t know very much.”
Want to increase faith? Listen differently. If your heart isn’t in it, your eyes will be the same… Faith cannot change Gods will- but empowers us to act on Gods will. It’s trust. That God knows what we do not. TRUST in something I can’t see. Trust in His wisdom and His love. EVERYTHING HE DOES IS FOR OUR ETERNAL HAPPINESS. Even if we don’t understand now, it will all make sense. Hold strong Sadie Rae. Answers will come. Be confident. You will be overcome by the love and generosity of your Father. Seek always to increase your faith. Faith comes to the humble and enduring. Make Richie the sunshine of your life. Keep knocking and don’t give up. You will receive the knowledge you seek— that light will come and grow brighter and brighter. ️
God and Jesus Christ believe in us even when we don’t. We torture ourselves constantly by comparing ourselves to others… We must stop. Look at it in a way of improvement. Ask God what He thinks of you. YES you are good enough and YES you are going to make it. Constant work, brings us closer and closer to Him. “The Atonement is for Saints” to overcome and avoid bad. To do things we normally couldn’t do. An enabling power. Ask for it. Repent.
…this is more about a covenant and commitment of your heart and soul. Ask HF to help you with that. Don’t feel sorry for yourself or get fixated… Pray for relief, for discernment, and to have strength in Gods will. Knowing that His will is perfect and needed. LET GOD HELP YOU. You are so caught up in the harmful and negative side of it… Not on letting God take this from you and help you.
“His thoughts are higher than your thoughts. His wisdom is superior to our own.”
Father will you remove this cup from me if it is your will? And if not be at this time, please help me live in joy and peace in spite of it. I will keep trying.
*Sade– you are doing your best. Focus on that and your accomplishments instead of always focusing on the negative and what needs fixing. Something’s don’t need fixing, they just need acceptance.. You agreed to every experience you have had on this earth. You are improving- you are becoming- and God is here with His grace to help with the rest that we don’t understand. Replace your doubt with faith and courage giving all of it to God. This is you. You have hardships and quirks like no one else- and that is great. Because it’s making you work. It’s preparing you for something bigger. So stop trying to fix and understand everything. Just be your best and know you are in the right place. You have felt it.
Never forget that you came to earth as a child of the divine Father, with something of divinity in your very makeup. The Lord did not send you here to fail. He did not give you life to waste it. He bestowed upon you the gift of mortality that you might gain experience—positive, wonderful, purposeful experience—that will lead to life eternal.
“As we strive to keep an eternal perspective, seeing the “bigger picture” rather than focusing on mortal challenges that sometimes blur our vision, we can better manage both our emotional and mental well being.”
I just wish everyone could see how beautiful & strong they really are… And that they could know they are doing a great job at life 🙂 We can all get this blurry vision from our individual hardships.. We will fall down and get back up everyday. The beauty is the persistence and finding the joy in that persistence.. The joy in trying hard and never giving up. That alone is something to celebrate!
… I just think we all need those moments to step back, take a big breath, and let our eyes be opened. Life is too short. Too fragile and precious. Everyday is the day to tell your family you love them and try a little bit harder to be a little bit better. We are far from perfect, but through the help of God and other people, we can witness true beauty everyday and be happy 🙂 sometimes you have to ask for help.. And that’s okay. That is why we are all here.
You are special. Ride the wave and be gentle with yourself. Patience dear friend️
