A Mother's Faith.....

On this conference weekend, I wanted to share my faith with you:

I have faith that the Lord loves me, and that He has not forgotten me during this trial.

I have faith that the Lord loves my children, and that He is constantly watching over them, blessing them in ways that I cannot right now, and that He will continue to do that, as long as my faith does not waiver.

I have faith in the atonement, and that as I ask for forgiveness from the Lord, and extend forgiveness to those who hurt me, that mighty miracles can be worked in the hearts of all involved.

I have faith that the Lord is blessing me daily, giving me physical and emotional strength.

I have faith that my family will be reunited when this process is over, and that we will be even stronger than we were when it started.

I have faith that conducting my life with integrity is what the Lord requires of me, and that as I act with integrity, I will be blessed.

I have faith that the Lord is allowing other people to use their free agency, and that they will bear the consequences of uses of that agency that are immoral or destructive.

I have faith that the Lord wants my family to be sealed for time and all eternity, and that He will make a way possible for that to happen.

I have faith that the Lord answers prayers.

I have faith that fasting brings blessings and strength to those who fast, and to those who are fasted for by others.

I have faith that the Lord chose me to be the mother to the Joshua, Sarah, Kathleen and Madeline; it is not an accident or mistake that I am their mother.

I have faith in the power of priesthood blessings, both to heal and to comfort in times of trial.

I have faith that no matter what happens, that the Lord will always be beside me, and that I can lean on Him, even when it feels that the rest of the world has forsaken me.

I believe in Christ, and I know
He believes in me.

I am finding that faith is not something you have, it is something you live, hour by hour and day by day.....I hope that my faith is always equal to the challenges that come.
