I love Joseph Smith and honor what the Lord assigned his hand to do. He was chosen of God to do a mighty work. However we know Joseph Smith led us to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. It is their mighty works he wants us to honor and not to just honor him. My heart aches sometimes as I sense the spirit in the scriptures and am encouraged to personally do the things the Lord has asked of me. No matter how far I try to run, I can’t run from myself. I have many times wanted to find the answers in my life in various ways. It has been made perfectly clear that my answers are in the Holy Scriptures. The wisdom of man is foolishness to God. My limited information did not help me. I am who I am and He is pleased with me as He is with us all.
The Lord loves His children. In fact He adores us. Heavenly Father sent His only son to die for our sins. His word says come, let us reason together. Come follow me. I have promises I want to fulfill in your lives. I remember you and know your capabilities. I gave you the gifts you choose not to use. I love you and want you to share the love I have with others. Come, my children, come.
As I beckon to His call I pray we all will go to another level of understanding who He is and who He is to us. I’ve spent many years seeking love in all the wrong places and there it was all the time…. as close as the breath I breathe.
In Jesus name, I pray understanding and love like never before.
