President Monson has been so inspirational to me throughout my life. He instilled in me a great love for reading and good books. He has the ability to insert humor in the midst of a serious talk, and he commands our full attention when he is teaching and guiding us with instruction we know is coming directly from the Lord. I've been reading a lot of his quotes and see such spiritual flow among them.
I'd like to share a few in succession. 💛 "The future is as bright as your faith. Our Heavenly Father loves you--each of you. That love never changes...it is simply always there. The purpose of mortality is to learn and to grow to become more like our Father, and it is often during the difficult times that we learn the most, as painful as the lessons may be. Decisions determine destiny. Our Heavenly Father does answer prayers in HIS own time and in HIS own way. Wonderful glorious things are in store for you IF ONLY YOU WILL believe, obey and endure. It's in the DOING, not just the thinking, that we accomplish our goals. Choose your friends with caution; plan your future with purpose, and frame your life with faith. Remember who you are and what God expects you to become. Never postpone a prompting. Think to thank. Dare to stand alone. It is better to LOOK UP. Each heartfelt prayer, each church meeting attended, each worthy friend, each righteous decision, each act of service
performed all precede that goal of eternal life. Don't limit yourselves and don't let others convince you that you are limited in what you do. Believe in yourself and live so as to reach your possibilities. May I suggest a formula that will ensure our success: first, search the scriptures with diligence, second, plan your life with purpose, third, teach the truth with testimony, and fourth, serve the Lord with love. Of this be sure: you do not FIND the happy life...you MAKE it." 💛 (All words between quotes from President Thomas S. Monson.) So I truly believe, as President Monson has stated: THE FUTURE IS AS BRIGHT AS YOUR FAITH. I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Sabbath day. 💜 #presidentmonson
