lately i have realized that Heavenly Father really does work by small and simple things. the down side to it is that so does satan. this is when life gets tricky.
by the small and simple things do great things come to pass (Alma 37:6). it is those small instances, the small promptings, the small things that bring such great joy. have you ever sat and wondered how you got to be where you are today? i have, and i know that it by the smallest acts that i am where i am today. by following those smal promptings and doing the small acts of service and simply by believing in the small things. all things really do add up and that is what brings about the greateness in us all.
one thing that i have really come to understand is that the church is true. how? well by the smallest things that the church does. by the principles that are taught and by the doctrine that the gospel is founded upon. it is those small things that i partake in everyday, and i realize that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true.
the small things in life really are there for us to learn and to grow. it is also by the simple things that we come to understand.
then the question becomes are we paying attention to the small and simple things or are we letting them pass by hoping for the big sign and big answer?
i have a dear friend that once told me a great one liner, "they both know you but only one loves you, so who are going to follow?" it is quite clear when it comes down to it. Heavenly Father is the one that will lead you safely home while on the other side is total destruction and turmoil. the blessings and the love definitely outweigh the heartache and pain.
so where do we turn and where do we look? remember that is by the small things that great things are brought to pass, wether they be good or bad. we need to do all that we can to follow the one that loves us.
i am so grateful to have such a loving Heavenly Father. i know that He loves me! i know that loves us all!
