So it's been awhile since I've blogged and a lot has just been crossing my mind...Discouragements, Disappointments, and just a whole lot of Frustrations I tend to think A LOT about why things happen, or why aren't I being blessed with things that I see others with when I was cleaning my purse I found this little letter that one of my friends gave me awhile back. Boy was it an eye opener and a blessing to come across it, something I needed at this time of dating and getting to know the opposite sex. I read this as if it was sent to me personally from my father in heaven, and I'm truly grateful for my heavenly father for I have neglected him in many ways but NEVER YET has he turned me down. So from here on out I'm going to get to know my Savior and Father above and just put my trust in him and I'm sure ALL will fall into place. I'm sooo grateful for all that I have been blessed with and all that is yet to come, I'm even more grateful for the trials I've faced to make me a stronger person today, tomorrow, and for eternities. I hope this letter touches you as it touched me...I LOVE THIS GOSPEL, MY FAMILY, MY FRIENDS, & even my ENEMIES!!
Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone;
to have a deep full relationship with another:
to be loved thoroughly and exclusively
But God says "No".
"Not until you are satisfied, fulfilled and content with being loved by me alone;
with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to me;
to have an intensely personal and unique relationship with me alone.
I love you, my child. Until you discover that only in me
is your satisfaction to be found, you will not be capable of the
perfect human relationship that I have planned for you.
You will never be united with another until you are united with me;
exclusive of anyone or anything else: exclusive of any other desires or longings.
I want you to stop planning and wishing. Allow me to bring that person to you.
You just keep watching me, expecting the greatest things.
Keep listening, learning the things I tell you.
You just wait; that's all"
"Don't be anxious, don't worry, don't look around at the things others have,
or what I have given them. Don't look at the things you think you want.
You just keep looking up to me, so you won't miss what I want to show you.
When you are ready, I'll surprise you with a love more wonderful
than you would ever have dreamed of.
You see, until you are ready and until the one I have for you is ready---
I am working even this minute to have you both ready at the same time---
until you are both satisfied,
exclusively with me and the life I have prepared for you,
you will not be able to experience the love that exemplifies
your relationship with me.
This is perfect love."
"And dear one, I want you to have this wonderful love,
I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with me,
and enjoy materially and concretely, the everlasting union of beauty,
perfection and love that I offer you with myself."
"Please know that I love you utterly. Believe it and be satisfied."
