Calling down the Powers of Heaven and using our agency wisely

Not a whole lot to report this week, but I do have some thoughts on how we can pull the powers of Heaven to benefit us in life, so bare with me while I paint you this picture.

Due to circumstances I have had the opportunity to have a lot of time to think about the Gift given from God, to us, called Agency. Yes I am betting all of us have heard of this word but what is it? Agency is the Ability to choose between good and evil, or right and wrong.

A series of of choices can lead us to a situation and once we are in that situation we cannot control it. We can however choose our outlook on the situation and what we are going to do about it. This is how we "exercise" our Agency. When we choose to have a good attitude during a hard time, or we choose the "harder right rather than the easier wrong", as President Monson said, we become stronger. A short definition of Strength is resistance to force. When we choose the harder and right way then we are resisting the forces of Satan and becoming stronger, so the next time we are faced with a similar situation we will know how to handle it better.

I love my mission! Each day I learn something new and I am extremely grateful for that! I am grateful that I have the ability to change. My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has made that possible for me. I know that He is the Christ and He lives and loves me!
Sorry for what could seem like a pretty boring email but maybe the pictures could make up for it! ;)
