Hello fam, friends, and fans :,)
So this week was a little bit of a trying one, but a testimony builder for sure.

I was sitting in sacrament meeting yesterday reflecting upon my week, and about some things I knew to be true but had been second guessing.
As I was sitting there with an internal conflict, I started to think about TRUST.
D&C 6: 22 Verily, verily, I say unto you, if you desire a further witness, cast your mind upon the night that you cried unto me in your heart, that you might know concerning the truth of these things.
23 Did I not speak peace to your mind concerning the matter? What greater witness can you have than from God?Throughout life, God gives us little answers, glimpses of guidance, and quiet assurance and comfort. We feel that it is from Him, we follow it, and then sometimes that feeling doesn't come back. But I think faith is remembering that feeling and trusting that He wasn't lying to us.
I'd be lying if I said I haven't had hard days where everything feels like too much. I have had more days than one where I really felt like I couldn't get out of bed and face the day. There have been times where my heart just feels so heavy and I wonder if the hardship and heaviness will ever end.
I don't know exactly why, but I just felt like my letter today needed to reassure myself and whomever is reading this that HARDSHIPS DO END.
I am just a 20 year old white Mormon girl from Utah, and I don't know everything, but something I do know for sure is God is real and His love is unfailing. I know every single thing that happens in our lives is something that can refine us and help us be better fit for the kingdom of God. I know the Lord is always, always there beside us to help us along if we let him.
I found that scripture in D&C at a time in my life of immense sorrow. It has crept into my mind a few times since when I needed it most. It means a lot to me and I hope it will mean something to someone else too.
Let us cast our minds upon that night we cried unto God in our hearts. Let us not forget the peace we felt concerning the matter. What greater witness could we have received than one from God?
His love is unfailing.
Man, I love you all so dearly!!! Keep being stellar humans and freaky fresh :))
