As many of you know, last week we had Stake Conference. I went to the evening adult session on Saturday night. The second half really threw me for a loop....among the lowest of lows loop, including extreme discouragement, frustration, depression, and a feeling that I could not go on. Thank goodness I have loving friends and leaders that guided me quickly out of this loop and I have had a great week.
But, last night I reread my notes from the first half of that Saturday night session. This is some of what was said:
- "If faith, fasting, and priesthood blessing doesn't heal you, Atonement will."
- "When you are doing the Lord's work, your children are in His hands and His hands are always better than your hands."
- "All that is unfair about life can be made right through the Atonement of Jesus Christ."
So, it was me. I had all the answers even before the pain started. It was me that turned away and allowed myself to feel that extreme anguish. He had already given me the answers. It was me.
