This is a quote that a friend shared on facebook. I liked it so much that I decided to see the source. It was from a conference talk back in April of 1976.
The Holy Ghost will help us “find out what you are and what you are for.” I have tried many times to try and fit into what I thought was the church mold. I felt I had to portray perfect and be kind and friendly without working through my real feelings. But God created me completely unique. How I read the scriptures and interpret them are going to be completely different from you. But you can add insights and meaning into my life and I can offer the same to you. Perhaps that is why we are command to reunite often. However, we have to be humble and teachable and have the gift of discernment.
As I have tried to find truly “what I am for” and love all parts that are me, the strengths and the weaknesses, I have found that my Father wants His daughter to do His work in her unique way. Be authentic to the light within and not try to copy some program but pray and get my own inspiration on how I can accomplish my part. Which lives only my unique skill set can uplift and bless… and the encourage others to do the same.
I love this idea.
