Super crazy story, I leave for the MTC NEXT WEEK!!! I have been on a super spiritual high the past couple weeks, just soooo excited to go! I have been working on my farewell talk a lot lately, which is going to be about Jesus Christ, and I heard a song on the radio the other day that I couldn't get out of my head. It is one of my most favorite love songs, but I listened to it a little bit differently today since I have been thinking about my Savior alot and if you think about it as the relationship between you and your Savior instead of you and a lover the song takes on a whole new meaning. Think of it as your spiritual journey, trying to figure out Christ, why He is having you go through certain challenges, and just putting complete faith and trust in him, giving Him all of you because you love Him and He gives you all of Him because He loves you. "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all they strength". "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life". I testify that He does know and love you and that as we draw closer to Him we can feel that love and it will be natural to give our souls to Him. :)
