I Am the Law and the Light 3 Nephi 12-16

I Am the Law and the Light 3 Nephi 12-16

The lesson "I Am the Law and the Light" has really taken me on an amazing scripture study journey.  I can usually read through the chapters in the first few days of the week and then start going back over it and reading sections and studying more for the rest of the week.  That wasn't really the case this week.

Arise and Come Forth Unto Me 3 Nephi 8-11

I've read these chapters many times before, but there was something there for me this time that I haven't felt before.  I think it all goes back to the messages that we've been hearing from our prophet about how we need to learn to Hear Him.

Lift Up Your Head and Be of Good Cheer 3 Nephi 1-7

Over the last several months it's been a little hard at times to find a reason to lift up my head and be of good cheer, I have to admit.  But if there is anything to be learned from the period of time right before the Savior came to the Americas, it's that there is always a reason to have hope and be of good cheer.  Even when times are tough.

Remember The Lord Helaman 7-12

The story of Nephi praying on the garden tower, and his plea to those around him to remember the Lord is a story that I tend to forget about. But is there any message in the scriptures more important than to remember the Lord?  It's so easy to forget Him, especially when we are distracted by so many things around us.

Preserved by His Marvelous Power Alma 53-63

The story of the Army of Helaman is probably one of the most well known and loved stories of the Book of Mormon.  The idea that more than 2000 warriors could be "preserved by His marvelous power" because of their faith is awe inspiring.

Stand Fast in the Faith of Christ Alma 43-52

Standing firm in the faith of Christ will not mean life is free of conflict or trial, but it does mean having the strength to continue on in the face of that conflict, to know which side you are on, and that there is a loving Heavenly Father that will always lead us in the direction we need to go.

The Great Plan of Happiness Come Follow Me lesson helps

The Great Plan of Happiness Alma 39-42

Alma's lesson about the great plan of happiness is definitely one of the most well known sections of the Book of Mormon.  We've all heard the phrase "wickedness never was happiness" more often than we can probably count. But the true message of Alma's teachings about the great plan of happiness is that even for those that make mistakes and DO chose wickedness (which is all of us, at some point) there is a beautiful way to come back.

Look to God and Live Alma 36-38

Alma's words from these chapters give me back the hope that I have been struggling to hold onto.  Not that the world is going to go back to the way it used to be, but that there are good things to come.  I can look to God and live...and not just the expected "next life" but in this life right now.

The Virtue of the Word of God Come Follow Me lesson helps

Alma 30-31 The Virtue of the Word of God

The most important thing that has happened to me through these experiences is the undeniable testimony that has grown in me that there IS a God.  I knew it before, but each new creation that I have had the privilege of witnessing has strengthened that burning testimony in me. How can anyone see these beautiful, miraculous things and not believe that they were created by a God that loves us?
