Don’t ask yourself, “What can I get from doing this”? Rather, ask yourself, “What can I give”? -Elder Anderson
“My Kindness Shall Not Depart From Thee”
JOY: (this is what dictionary.com says) the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying; keen pleasure; elation.
I believe one is able to have Joy to the fullest when they put Jesus first, then others and finally, yourself.
JOY= Jesus, others & yourself.
One of my favorite Christmas songs. Still, Still, Still… <3 Mormon Tabernacle Choir
How silently, how silently
The wondrous gift is given!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of his heaven.
No ear may hear his coming;
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive him, still
The dear Christ enters in.
(Hymns, 1985, no. 208.)
Don’t hold your good within, when you hold the power to act with it
Every time I listen to this beautiful hymn/song, I feel comfort and assurance of our savior’s love. I absolutely love this cover by Alex Boye. He does a FANtastic job at expressing the emotions of this song.
Even though situations may be going wrong, this hymn teaches me to “Be Still”, and know that He is God. He is the one to understand our circumstances. He will always be here to hear our prayers, and bear us up. No matter what the situation is, continue and strive for the everlasting gospel. Be Still; until He comes.
Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don’t come until heaven. But for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come.
