Hey Family and Friends,
I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY!!!
It’s the best!!
Something that I have been studying is accountability and have realized how important being accountable to the Lord is.
Why does the Lord want us to be accountable when he already knows what we have done? He wants us to not justify away our sins. If we go through our day and really talk to our Father in Heaven about our actions, we can be taught and realize where we have gone wrong and where we need to change and be better. God really has no ego. Being accountable to Him allows us to progress and become better people. And I feel really blessed to be able to recognize the Lord’s hand so apparent in my life.
God has no ego. If we really understand this statement, we will come to know that everything He does is for us. It will be hard for us to shake our hands at the heavens when we go through trials or when we see others go through trials if we understand God is the most selfless being. Absolute trust in our Heavenly Father is necessary if we are to go through life with a smile on our face.
If God has no ego, we too should desire to rid ourselves of our ego and become true followers of Jesus Christ. And this ego can leave us as we seek diligently and apply the gospel and understand that our hearts need to be broken. We need to have moments where we do want to ask our Father in Heaven why, but we slowly learn to realign our will to the Father’s, and we slowly learn to be more compassionate and more loving and more kind.
Sometimes when we go through trials, we may pray for the trial to end but sometimes we just have to take heart and trust in God, remembering that he is helping us to become who the Lord wants us to be.
I love being a missionary!!!
