After listening to the General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints - I am always left pondering my own life and how I can improve myself. I learned alot about gratitude, obedience, faith, parenting, and about my Savior, Jesus Christ. I am excited to go back and re-read/listen to the inspired talks and the words of Prophets, Seers and Revelators.
This conference, just like many in the past, has caught the attention of the media. As I have listened to the words of the Prophets and the reports of the media - I have looked deep down into my own Testimony of the gospel and have found that I sustain the leaders of my church as "Prophets, Seers and Revelators" and the things that they say are the things that the Lord would like me to hear. I know that the Gospel is true and I know that these scriptures are true:
37 Search these commandments, for they are true and faithful, and the prophecies and promises which are in them shall all be fulfilled.
38 What I the Lord have spoken, I have spoken, and I excuse not myself; and though the heavens and the earth pass away, my word shall not pass away, but shall all be fulfilled, whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same.
39 For behold, and lo, the Lord is God, and the Spirit beareth record, and the record is true, and the truth abideth forever and ever. Amen.
I know that these men are servants of the Lord and are doing his work with all of their heart. I also know that the things they say are the things that the Lord would have us hear - even if it is hard and even if it is not popular. I am so grateful that I belong to a church that does not change its standards or teachings just because of negitive media attention or because of what the world thinks is "right". I take comfort in knowing that the Lord loves us and gives us messages that we need to hear - at the moment we need to hear it! I love the gospel with all my heart and know that it is true!
