Spiritual thoughts that Tell sends me throughout the week.

April 3: My study today was in 2 nephi 15 A couple verses stuck out to me 18, 20-21. They talk about warnings against sin in the last days. The student manual says "people guilty of sin are like oxen tied to their carts with burdens. The heaviest burden that one has to bear in this life is the burden of sin. The gap between what is popular and what is righteous is widening. As prophesied by isaiah, many today call evil good and good evil. Revelations from the prophets of god are not like offerings at the cafeteria, some to be selected and others disregarded."
1st its saying basically we font know peoples trials or situations in life right now. We shouldn judge them for things or there burdens. Everyone makes mistakes. 2nd its saying the changes or things we recieve from the prophet are specific revelation from god to the prophet we shouldn pick and choose the things we follow from the prophet.

April 4: Good morning Elders and sister of the Lord! Spiritual thought: D and C 88: 6-13 Christ our master knows exactly what you are going through, the pains, the struggles, the temptations the hardships because He has been through and experienced the low of the lows. Christ knows all things because he has experienced all things. Christ is the one we can turn to for added strength and help because He comprehendeth all things. He is our superior example and lights the way for us to follow. When times are tough, when things are looking hard, when you are confused, or frustrated, having questions and doubts, when fear sets in, dont worry. Turn to our Savior who is in the midst of all things.

April 6- 4 nephi 1:15 we need to have the love of god in our hearts so that there will be no contention in the work we are doing.

April 10- D&C 38:7-8
But behold, verily, verily, I say unto you that mine eyes are upon you. I am in your midst and ye cannot see me;
But the day soon cometh that ye shall see me, and know that I am; for the veil of darkness shall soon be rent, and he that is not purified shall not abide the day.

April 16- Helaman 5:12
On our mission we need to continue to build our testimonies for when we go home and face the challenges of the world. If we build them on Christ then they will not fall, no matter what.
Elder Eliason and Elder Williams

April 18- Helaman 10:2-3
"And it came to pass that Nephi went his way towards his own house, pondering upon the things which the Lord had shown unto him.
And it came to pass as he was thus pondering . . . behold a voice came unto him saying:"
As you go about your day, walking down the street or riding your bikes or whatever it might be, be as Nephi and ponder and the Lord will teach what you need to know.
Elder and Sister Carlquist

May 22- D and C 78: 17-22. Always remember there is blessings ahead for us all

July 5- Boyd k packer-"Answers to prayers come in a quiet way. The scriptures describe that voice of inspiration as a still small voice. I have come to know that inspiration comes more as a feeling than as a sound. Put difficult questions in the back of your mine and go about your lives. Ponder and pray quietly and persistently about them. 'the answer may not come as a lightning bolt. It may come as a little inspiration here and a little there, line upon line precept upon precept' D&C 98:12" idk why just thought it was cool so figured id share it with you, love you, elder orton
