“When you do good, you feel good, and that is the Holy Ghost speaking to you. The Holy Ghost is a wonderful companion. He is always there to help you” President Ezra Taft Benson spoke about what the gift of the Holy Ghost will do for us. “The Holy Ghost helps you choose the right. The Holy Ghost will protect you from evil. He whispers to you in a still, small voice to do right.” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1989, 103; or Ensign, May 1989, 82).
I know these words to be true for I have seen the influence of the Holy Ghost in my life many, many times. And when I have done good, made the right choices, I have felt good.
I have seen it in other people’s lives as well. It doesn’t mean you have no problems, no issues in life. But it does mean you can feel good, happy, even calm inside – even while experiencing the problems and issues of life.
Try it and see for yourself. 🙂
