This past weekend was our Stake Conference. I had a very hard time at the adult only session Saturday night. I’ve decided that I have a bad case of agoraphobia and that, coupled with the difficulty of being one of very few mid-single adults in the room, made it hard not to want to just run and hide and cry. I cry a lot these days. At any rate, thanks to the love and support of my sister, I was able to persevere and soon realized why it was good that I did. Our 1st Counselor spoke on the differences between the Lord’s language and Lucifer’s language and suggested that we all need to make a conscious effort to make sure we are listening to the right language. Listening to the Lord’s language is not always very easy. In my present state, it’s actually extremely difficult.
I’ve been studying what the scriptures say Heavenly Father thinks of us to help me start thinking more of myself. Understanding who I am in Him has been helpful in learning to listen to His language more. In fact, I have a few new favorite scriptures as a result of this study. They are:Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. Galatians 4:7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
What amazes me still is how undeniably aware of me my Heavenly Father is. Prayerfully I’ll be able to listen (and speak) to His language more and more every day.
