One of the hardest things to deal with as humans, are limitations. Wouldn’t it be so much better if we could just snap our fingers and fix everything? Or, like the movie “Click”, fast forward all the trials we come to. However, that movie illustrated a great point that by skipping the bad parts, we miss a lot of good stuff because we miss the opportunity to learn so we can be prepared for future “adventures” (usually disguised under the ever unpleasant name of “Trials”).
Think back to a time when you hit a really trying barrier. What kind was it? Mental, physical, emotional, etc. How big was it? Did you know how to get through it at the time? Probably not… And that’s okay! In Heavenly Father’s infinite wisdom and knowledge, He created tools and plans, and “heavy machinery” to help us remove those road blocks.
One of my personal favorite, “go to” tools is the Book of Mormon. It is chuck full of peaceful advice and motivation to turn to God for help and strength. I especially love the book of Enos. In this short book, Enos “cried unto him in mighty prayer” so he could know for himself that God was there, that he could be forgiven of his sins, and that all would be made well in the end.
When we hit road blocks along our way, do we remember to ask God and Jesus Christ for help? Unfortunately, that’s not the most common solution these days, but I can promise you that if you “stop, drop and kneel” all your road blocks will turn to stubble that can easily be over come, and you can continue onward along your journey.
I promise that God loves you. He loves all of His children, and there is no limit to His love, justice, mercy, etc. God is the “ same yesterday, today, and forever“, and He will be with us always. I know He desires our happiness and success, and that He wants us to enjoy our time here on Earth.
In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
