Today I had a rude awakening. I knew it was going to be a difficult day. My heart was filled with disappointment and anxiety. Normally I anxiously await the peace I feel in the walls of my church building, but today I just didn't want to go. I wanted to go back to sleep and forget about everything. But nevertheless I decided to go to church with one goal in mind. I wanted answers from Heavenly Father. My head was full with nothing but questions and uncertainty. The first speaker in Sacrament must have been incredibly in tune with the Spirit. It was like she had written the talk specifically for me. All of my questions were answered, I was given perspective, I felt hopeful. Tears came to my eyes as I realized how much Heavenly Father must love me to bring these answers to me so quickly. What if I hadn't gone to church today? To the girl whom I don't even know, thank you for preparing for your talk. Thank you for sharing this scripture:

41 And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and ahappy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are bblessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out cfaithful to the end they are received into dheaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness. O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it.

This song brought me peace as well:
