My Journey’s Almost Done

As my time finishes up here as a missionary of Jesus Christ I’ve been reflecting over a lot of the things that I have learned.  Something that I have truly come to believe during the past two years is how the power of desire influences one’s choices and the ultimate sum of who that person is.  I’ve met a lot of people who live in addiction and who’s families suffer due to the desire certain family members have to “live in the moment,” drinking, using drugs and partying.  I recently spoke to a woman who had been drinking and she laughed when she said that she was going to feed her baby with her beer whenever he cried.

I cannot pass judgment on the woman. That is God’s job.  I only want to say that I have seen the consequences when one places God and their families on a low level.  After two years, I know that some of my strongest desires need to be focused on the Savior and strengthening my family so that we can all return to the presence of our Heavenly Father one day.  I know that by applying what is taught to us in the Bible as well as the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ, all these blessings can be received.  I truly believe that in order to strengthen our families, God has called a prophet in the world today to help us all return to the presence of our Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ.

I feel like I could honestly do another two years.  And I’m not just saying that.  I don’t feel like you feel when you get to the top of the mountain and want to rest and just see the view.  I feel like I could keep climbing and… its time to go home.

I could write more, but I’ll just share a scripture that I think you’ll like.

2 John 1:12  Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.

I love you all and will speak with some of you soon.   🙂
