Jonah; Micah
“He Delighteth in Mercy”

Witnessing the Lord’s mercy often inspires feelings of love and gratitude. However, Jonah was “displeased” and “very angry” (Jonah 4:1) when the Lord extended mercy to the people of Nineveh, who were Israel’s enemies. Why might Jonah have felt this way? Have you ever had similar feelings?

✨ SHARING SUNDAY ✨

My favorite talk from general conference was Be Perfected In Him by Elder Paul V. Johnson. I have always had a testimony of the atonement, but I have also always struggled to conceptualize what it is or how it could work. In my head I have always thought something like, "it makes no sense, but I believe that it is real." The metaphor Elder Johnson used of the bone marrow transplant helped me to visualize the atonement in a way that makes more sense to me.

If I had one point to take away from this talk it would be that just like someone who needs a transplant can't heal themselves, we cannot make ourselves perfect. It is only through the power of the atonement that God makes us perfect.

I truly believe that Christ did come here to do that work to make us perfect. I am so grateful he loves me enough to do the work for me that I cannot do for myself. I am excited to be perfected and to live with my Heavenly Father again.

MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY

Changing my perspective from “When will this run be over?” to “Look at all the good around me!” helped me to better recognize God’s hand and find the patience, faith, and hope to keep going.

Have you ever wondered if you can keep on going? What are some ways you keep on going?



Trials: How Much Farther Can I Go?
https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/inspiration/trials-how-much-farther-can-i-go?lang=eng
✨ SHARING SUNDAY ✨

I am grateful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have a testimony of God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. I am thankful for temples and the blessings we receive by making and keeping covenants. I know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love each of us, and are perfectly aware of us. As we draw nearer to them, we will feel their love more abundantly in our lives.


I’ve enclosed my favorite quotes from President Nelson’s talk, “Overcome the World and Find Rest”. These quotes are why I loved this talk so much.

-Overcoming the world is not an event that happens in a day or two. It happens over a lifetime as we repeatedly embrace the doctrine of Christ.

-As you make the continual strengthening of your testimony of Jesus Christ your highest priority, watch for miracles to happen in your life.

-Spend more time in the temple, and seek to understand how the temple teaches you to rise above this fallen world.

-I plead with you now—to take charge of your own testimony of Jesus Christ and His gospel. Work for it. Nurture it so that it will grow.

-The reward for keeping covenants with God is heavenly power—power that strengthens us to withstand our trials, temptations, and heartaches better. This pow#GeneralConference

How did they find the strength to remain so faithful? They did those small and simple things that God has asked all of us to do—praying, fasting, choosing good friends, trusting in God, and being a light to others. As we are strengthened by doing these same small and simple things, we can face the lions and fiery furnaces in our own lives with faith.
