Henry B. Eyring - Sunday am session

Recommended Posts

Many of us in personal anguish feel God is far from us.

God is never hidden yet sometimes we are.

Our own desires create a feeling of a pavilion blocking God.

Our feelings of separation from God will diminish as we become more childlike.

God never hides from his faithful children.

Jesus Christ lives, loves us, watches over us and cares for us.

We can’t insist on our timetable when the Lord has His own.

We remove the pavilion when we feel and pray “Thy will be done” and understand that it will be in His time.

We can be sure that the Lord keeps His promises.

The day will come that we will all see Him face to face.

We will all stand before Him in person.

Standing before Him will make it much more pleasurable if we learn to know Him as well as He knows us.

As we do what He will have us do for his children, the Lord feels it is a kindness to him.

Personally speaking.

Sometimes what we want in our lives is not what's best for us. We are blessed when we follow God's plan for us.

How do we know God's plan for us?

We pray and trust the promptings.

We can't insist on our timetable.

His time should be enough for us when we know that He knows what's best for us.

This talk brought tears to my eyes because I have some of this work to do in my own life. I don't want to submit to these circumstances of mine. It's too hard and it's too painful. And it's been too hard and too painful for too long. And I want to be done!! But my protest is blocking me from greater access to God. Yuck. So...I guess I know what I must do. Jump head first into that humbling crucible. And then really lean into my faith. The only thought I can muster that I think will help me do it is the desire in me to know myself in that more progressed state. The one that lies on the other side of the trial. It's only that....and the regret I'll feel if I don't submit.
