edified
























Today was one of those peaceful, soul-filling, enriching, beautiful days.
I see clearer & my heart is full of gratitude & hope.
I have been taught & edified.

I'm feelin' an awesome Ammon-vibe...
when He said here....

"Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever...........

Therefore, let us glory, yea, we will glory in the Lord; yea, we will rejoice, for our joy is full; yea, we will praise our God forever. Behold, who can glory too much in the Lord? Yea, who can say too much of his great power, and of his mercy, and of his long-suffering towards the children of men? Behold, I say unto you, I cannot say the smallest part which I feel."

It's no mystery to any reader of this blog,
that I kinda eb & flow emotionally.

I know that tendency {in part} is rooted in the natural biochemistry-of-Angie,
but I also know that my thoughts & level of my active faith are what make or break me.

I strive to remember, the promising words found in Timothy 2:
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

Today I was personally counseled through the divine power of the Holy Ghost
to strive ever-harder to diligently remember that.


When fearful thoughts come to me,
as they often do,
I hope to have the feelings of this day &
the words of this scripture handy.

Fear is distorted information. 
But God gave us each power, and love, and a sound mind. 
What a blessing.

My heart is full of gratitude to Him.

In His strength I can do all things.

Those words of Ammon's have always resonated with me, and they're always a welcome reminder... When I'm feeling like a failure, I need to remember that with God, I am capable of anything. Even if what I need His strength for is just doing laundry or cooking dinner... sometimes, that is what's important. :)
