Hope...

I think we’ve talked about this before; that I get emails from my  
Heavenly Father?  Oh, we haven’t?  {cricket, cricket} awkward…

Well, let me explain.  I have an email subscription to these inspirational lil tidbits and scriptures that are delivered to my inbox at least twice a week. 
{Truthfully, I'm not sure how often they come.}
I do know they come when I need them.  We don’t have to be the same religion to understand Christ and the need for Him in our lives.  We don’t have to share the same religion to understand, prayer, fasting, faith and the inevitable necessary trials that enable us to become more like Him.  So, with that said…this is what I received on a day that was a little shattering.

“Because of Christ there is hope smiling brightly before you, and you need not worry too much about sickness, death, poverty, or other afflictions. The Lord will take care of you. Your responsibility is to keep the commandments, feast upon the words of Christ, and stay in the path to your heavenly home."
-Julie B. Beck

For those of you who don’t know… we are going through trials and ‘stuff’ big time.  I can’t really go in to details because of a certain person that likes to thwart my family’s lives.
{Starts with a Mr. ends with a B}
I’m sorry, I hate to be cryptic…Hahahaha! 
No, I’m good.  I just needed to get that out.

Anyway, let’s put it this way, Mr. B holds true to the oath in Harry Potter… “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”
{wait, maybe that was me that took that oath?}

Okay, back to the point.  We {as a family} have literally been all sitting in my room discussing things we’re facing and up pops an email that applies directly to the encouragement of the burden we are facing.
{stops…looks around for cameras}
But after this happened, more than a few times the pidgletts decided they were indeed emails from Him.  I have to agree…of course He’s up with all of the latest technology.  Right?  {wink}

What I do know is Heavenly Father’s timing is perfect and I just loved this bit of comforting advice that allows me to toss my worries back to Him and just keep my eye on the path.

This, incidentally, was one of the half-written emails I spoke about a few posts back.  And here’s another kicker…this is the email that followed a few days later:

"As we put our faith and trust to work, hope is born. Hope grows out of faith and gives meaning and purpose to all that we do. It can even give us the peaceful assurance we need to live happily in a world that is ripe with iniquity, calamity, and injustice."

-M. Russell Ballard


Funny right?  I think He was just trying to reiterate His point of Hope

The best thing about it is I am full of Hope…it’s free and easy to carry, and the more I give away, the more I find in my pockets.  {wink}

I’ll be off gathering, scatter and growing Hope…oh and a few chores before work.  {grin}

I think I just might have blogged at least 3 times this week.  Hmm, there may be “hope” for me after all!  Ahh Hahahaha!

Okay, I’m done.  O happy day!

loves,

Pidg
