D&C 88:83

He that seeketh me early shall find me, and shall not be forsaken.

- D&C 88:83

When I was still in high school, my mom suggested to me that I read this scripture. I read the scripture and found strength. To me, this scripture means that the sooner we seek out the Lord by keeping his commandments and drawing closer to him, the stronger the bond between us and Him becomes. Then, if there ever is a time in our life that we drift away a little, the Lord will be quick to help us get back on the path.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all they ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

- Proverbs 3:5-6

There have been (and continue to be) many times in my life when I didn’t understand why I was having a certain trial or why something happened to my loved ones or me. At those times, the only thing that consoled me was knowing that a Father in heaven was in charge of the grand scheme of things and that in the end, things would work out for the best. God knows all things – past, present and future and I know if I put my trust in him, I will return to heaven again.

Twenty Scriptures of Strength and Direction

A few years ago, I put together a compilation of scriptures and thoughts that have given me strength and direction. These scriptures always seem to find a way back into my life.

I'll share these scriptures and some of my thoughts about them over the next several posts.
