For the next few days I will be beginning my day with my gratitude post because I will be having some late days/nights at work and I know I will be too tired to sit down and write when I walk in the door well after a Godly hour. I am grateful for sleep. I… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 418

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 417

Today as I study various things in 1 Nephi 13 I am struck by how firm God is in honoring agency. He honors the agency of men, even if bad things will happen. He honors the agency of men who with change His word and warp the perception of others of just who God is… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 417

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 416

As I continue my study of Nephi's vision I wonder, "How did he know what the symbols meant? It wasn't like the angel gave him a definition for everything he saw. Then a couple of things occurred to me. 1) God teaches us with things we are familiar with. 2) God doesn't always tell us… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 416

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 415

Today has been a good day. I finished all my goals for the day. But the day started early with dental appointments and all and ended late with me doing my exercise at the end of the day, rather than in the beginning. I am grateful I had the courage to push through. I am… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 415

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 412

Today as I studied the scriptures I was struck by the honest answers of Nephi. He is unafraid to say with conviction what he knows. He is also comfortable saying, "I don't know, but I intend to find out." I'd like to think I live my life the same way. I know I know quite… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 412

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 411

Today I studied 1 Nephi 9. The phrase, "for a wise purpose" sticks out. It makes me wonder if I brush aside impressions that are given to me "for a wise purpose." Nephi had no idea why he needed a second record other than God told him to do it and that it must be… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 411

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 410

Scripture study this morning... how does one change their perspective from "clinging" to the rod to "holding fast" to the rod? This seems of great importance. Really. Those who were clinging to the rod seemed to live and move forward out of fear. Been there. Done that. Fear is a sad way to live. That… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 410

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 409

Scripture study this morning was all about the tree Lehi saw and the fruit that was sweet to the taste. I have mapped out this story so many times. My scriptures are covered with notes and sticky notes with ideas learned from this vision. (Admittedly, there are times I wish I could dream like that,… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 409
