Let Us Cheerfully Do All That Is In Our Power- October 20, 2014

Family and Friends!

It is so great to be here with you again this beautiful week!

Many times as a missionary it has been hard for me to see the blessings and miracles each day, especially when everything has gone oposite of my way. But this week I have learned to follow the counsel that we find in Doctrine and Covenants 123:17

Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our   power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the   salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed.

Many times in our lives we will want to see immediate results. Even more often we want those results to be according to our like and taste. But when we choose to follow God and His commandments we in turn are choosing to cheerfully do all that is in our power to be still and wait upon the Lord to do His part. Often we work, we share, we study the scriptures, or we pray only to seemingly not recieve an answer. But really what is happening is we are doing everything in our power and waiting for the Lord to show His. 

This week Sister Silva and I worked really hard everyday. We shared our message and we testified of the truth of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, many times to see nothing happen. But at the end of the week we were able to look back and see that we cheerfully did all that was in our power and really did see the arm of God revealed. I am grateful for every miracle that happens in our lives and for the opportunity that I have to be a missionary and see the miracles of God unfold before my eyes. All we need is a little faith, trust, and prayer!

Remember the Lord loves you and The Church is TRUE!!
