Just a little thought..

I got home from Vegas last night around 7:45 at night, and I was just sitting in my room, getting pictures uploaded and what not, and my roommate comes to my room telling me someone was at the door for me. So I go to the door to see who was out there, and it was my new visiting teacher! She just came over to meet me and she gave me a big sugar cookie with a quote on it. It wasn't until about an hour later that I actually read the quote, and it is amazing how much I needed that right now, especially with last night being the last time that I'll see Jonathan before he's a missionary. Here's the quote:

Put Your Trust in God
It isn't as bad as you sometimes think it is.
It all works out. Don't worry.
I say that to myself every morning.
It will all work out.
Put your trust in God,
and move forward with faith
and confidence in the future.
The Lord will not forsake us.
He will not forsake us.
If we put our trust in Him,
if we will pray to Him,
if we will live worthy of His blessings,
He will hear our prayers.
-Gordon B. Hinckley

Now, it may not seem like much to you, but there have been a lot of things going through my mind lately, and it's been pretty hard to take some of the things in that are happening with my life. This just made me realize how lucky I am to have the gospel in my life, and I am so thankful that I was taught everything about it when I was young so I know I have somewhere to turn when I need it the most, and when I have no where else to turn.

I think that's an important thing to remember, all the time, and not just when you hit rock bottom. Remember that Heavenly Father wants to be your best friend all the time. He will listen like no one else will. Life may not go the way we planned it to, but He always has a better plan for us. Love Him, that's all He wants (:
