This morning I attended Seminary with Evan.
The lesson today was found in 3 Nephi 12 and we covered the first 12 - 13 verses and compared it to the Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew.
This lesson was a good lesson for me and brought some peace to my soul.
Since Sunday I have been struggling with my feelings and the sorrow that has been ebbing because of the lack of support that I felt should have been given.
During the lesson I realized that the only thing I can do is to be like Jesus. The Beatitudes are a pattern for life, which Christ lived perfectly. It won't matter how imperfect I am or how imperfect others are as long as I strive to live as Jesus Christ did.
I know that he was abandoned at times by his disciples. He was forgotten by the saints. And ultimately betrayed by an apostle. Yet he lived his life in peace and found comfort in the the love and support that he felt from his Father. I know these things to be true and I am glad for the simple reminders that are found in the scriptures.
I am happy that I chose to rise early this morning and attend Seminary. I would not have received this reminder when I needed it if I had not gone.
The Lord loves his children and wants us to be happy. The Tender Mercies of the Lord are miracles in our lives. Look for them; look for him; you will find yourself.
