I need to start posting these things earlier. I made this goal to post something uplifting to social media every week, and then I forget to do it until right before I go to bed. It feels good, though, to reflect a little before I lie down. So all in all not bad.
I went to a regional conference today where Richard G. Scott spoke, and he said some really neat things about prayer:
"Don’t worry about your clumsily expressed feelings. Just talk to your compassionate, understanding Father. You are His precious child whom He loves perfectly and wants to help. As you pray, recognize that Father in Heaven is near and He is listening."
I'm just grateful that God will meet us where we are. He'll greet us if we run to Him, like Martha. And He'll teach us. But on the days when we just can't, He'll still be there. Like how he came to Mary, and wept with her (John 11). I'm glad to know that He doesn't expect me to be like anyone else or have the strength or ability or reactions that others might have. He just wants me to be me, and that's a wonderful thing.
Have a great week!
