The Worth of Souls is Great Doctrine & Covenants 18-19

The message in Doctrine and Covenants 18 about the worth of souls is one we hear often.  We teach and learn that the Lord knows us and calls us by name. It might be the most comforting message in all scripture.  I know that for me, it brings me a lot of peace when I feel like I matter.

Stand as a Witness Doctrine & Covenants 14-17

It's interesting to contemplate what it must have been like to be one of the men chosen to stand as a witness to the gold plates. This week as I studied Doctrine and Covenants 14-17, it seemed like I had to work extra hard to figure out exactly what the message was for me.

The honest truth is, I have no idea where the Lord is leading me right now. And I have good days, where I can feel the wind pushing me, but the waves and turbulence have calmed.  But I also have those days when it feels like the storm is picking up, the waves are crashing, and my boat is tumbling.  I have been trying to not let those days get the better of me, but it can be difficult.

I Would That I Could Persuade All to Repent Mormon 1-6

I imagine it was difficult for Mormon as he watched the destruction of his people and wished that he could persuade all to repent.  Yet also being so close to the Lord and a prophet, he ultimately knew where things were leading, and it had to be heartbreaking for him.

There Could Not Be a Happier People 3 Nephi 27- 4 Nephi

Wouldn't it be amazing if, somewhere down the road...say, 100 years or so...people could look back on us at this time and say "There could not be a happier people than those people that were living in 2020."?  I thought about that a lot as I was reading the beginning verses of 4 Nephi, and it was one of the messages of this lesson that left me in awe.
