Blessings

I recently decided to move my records to a family ward at church, and let me just say, it has been the best thing ever. Like, I should've made the move months ago.

I once had a very wise person say to me, "There comes a point in your single life when everyone is trying to help you out, and motivate you, but they really don't have any idea what position you are in and how you feel, and you will come to realize that the only one that DOES is the Savior".

I'm finally beginning to realize what that means. I have so many incredible people in my life, and so many loving examples of faith and righteousness that have really blessed me and helped me. Since I have moved into the family ward, that list of people has just become longer. My new bishop and his wife are phenomenal, the ladies in the young women's presidency with me are amazing, it's just been good, but I'm learning more and more that Christ is the only one who knows. Like truly.

Sometimes, that is hard to feel too. You pray, and you cry, and you plead and you want to see HIs hand, and even if the answer doesn't come right away, peace comes at some point.

The last few months, since I've been in a new ward, for the first time since my mission, I feel like I have a place in the church. I feel like I belong in the ward that I'm in, and I feel like I'm where I need to be. Once I finish school, I will be more active at singles activities, (I try now, but I'm just swamped) but for now, this is where I need to be.

Anyway….there's some random thoughts on my life right now, and the reminder that God is good, and you are never alone, no matter what.
