_I?ll_strengthen_thee,_help_thee,_and_cause_thee_to_stand.

Hello my beloved!(This is how our mission President answers the phone when we call)
Can I just say, these last few weeks have been full of lessons from the Lord! I have been realizing more and more how much the Lord has been sustaining me throughout my entire mission. I'll just give one small example of this.
This week I have had the hardest time speaking to people! Everything i say seems to just come out in a jumbled mess. I haven't even been able to explain my studies to my companion without stumbling over my words. This was so frustrating for me. I have never been very good at speaking, but never before on my mission have I had this much trouble.
Later in the week the hymn, "How Firm A Foundation", popped into my head. (I've always got a hymn stuck in my head). The lyrics to the third verse really stood out to me.
Fear not, I am with thee; oh, be not dismayed,For I am thy God and will still give thee aid.I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,Upheld by my righteous, upheld by my righteous,Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.

I realized that over the last 16 months, it has never once been me who has been good at speaking. The Lord, every single day, has strengthened me to be able to perform this amazing work!
This is such a small example of how the Lord strengthens us but my testimony has grown so much this week! It fills me with such pure joy to know that, though my problems might be small, He continues to care and to lend His help. Isn't the Lord just so amazing?! I just love Him so much!
I love you all and hope you have a great week!
