Back on the horse

So much for reading everyday. I've missed 4 days. To be honest, I read a little bit on some of those days, but not all. And I obviously didn't post. But I'm making myself get back in the habit today.

D&C 63

• Signs come to those tho believe. They follow faith. I know we've heard this preached often, but when it comes time for us to exercise our faith, we always want to have the proof first. At least I do. The point of signs is to teach us trust, and to reward our faith. I need to remember that the next time I need to exercise faith -- that the reward comes after. (This is what makes is a reward, by definition!)

• I found the scripture that answers my question about death in the millenium. V. 51 says that children shall grow up till they become old, then shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye.

• Another phrase that caught my attention is in v. 59. "Behold, I am from above, and my power lieth beneath." A few years ago my husband wrote a paper for a religion class about faith. In it he discussed faith and power as it relates to God and man. He said that God's power is dependant on the faith of His children. As long as they have an exercise faith, God has power. (I am not describing this nearly as eloquently as he did!) I don't remember all the details, but that's the basic principle. And this scripture backs it up. His power lies beneath, with us.
