Sitting in Church today, basking in the warm, energetic feelings of our opening song, “I’ll Go Where You Want Me To Go”, it occurred to me that I was feeling much better than I have most of this week.
It has been an incredibly busy week, but even more so, an extremely emotionally challenging week. Not much of that was personal, but my mind and heart were bombarded by the sufferings, worries, and challenges of those around me. I had fallen into a state of discouragement and found myself wondering how to feel better – what could I do to raise my spirits?
And now, here was the answer. By simply doing what I have done ‘most every Sunday since the day I was born – attending church at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – my wounds were being cleansed and bound up without my even paying much attention to the process. I was being made whole again just because I was keeping the Lord’s commandments, living my life as I should, and participating in the great blessings that He has provided for us.
Ahhh, now I feel so much better, and ready to face the world and its concerns again.
I love the Church! 🙂
