Finding Peace Through The Lord (Part 2)

Yesterday I was sick with a cold still; only my mom has it as well. I and all my family members were not feeling well, so unfortunately we didn't go to church. We didn't have much medicine in the house and all of us were not feeling well. So, I kept praying that someone in the ward would bring us medicine and had the thought that it would be nice to have someone bring dinner as well. I doubted that someone would come, but still praying anyway, then the doorbell rang. It was a member from our ward; he brought us medicine and dinner as well. I felt so touched and at peace that indeed the Lord did answer my prayer!

Finding Peace Through The Lord (Part 1)

I got sick this week probably from the kids at church. It started out as a cough and sore throat, then later in the week turned into a cold. Does it matter who you get a cold from?! NO, COLD'S JUST SUCK!! I went through this week taking medicine and other usual stuff to get better, but it didn't help much. I prayed and read scriptures.

I read a scripture in Mosiah 24:15 which reads; "And I will also ease the burdens which are put upon your shoulders, that even you cannot feel them upon your backs, even while you are in bondage; and this will I do that ye may stand as witnesses for me hereafter, and that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit my people in their afflictions."

I know some of you do not have the same beliefs as me, but I find this scripture to be peaceful. It's just a continuous reminder we are not alone in our trails and afflictions, the Lord will helps. Of course there is always friends and family there to help us as well, we are not alone. Later on, today in fact, I received a blessing from with my dad and a member of our ward. I'm sure things will get well soon.
