As you can see I am developing a pattern here when I post. It takes me awhile to get anything put up here. I guess that is because I just never really know what I want to say. It seems like my thoughts are always so random and misplaced. When I sat to write this post I knew what I wanted to talk about and even now I am not sure how to put it into words. I was just able to read an email that was sent by my cousin who is serving in
are asked; to be obedient. I have come to understand that a man is one
who honors his oaths. There is a lot to be said and seen in how much an
oath meant to Nephi and his brethren when Zoram offered them his oath in
the Book of Mormon. These were men; they honored their commitments and
have me go and do as he would have me do. I know that this is the only
way to happiness. I now see that this is my purpose and direction. I
think I have wandered my whole life with no real destination. I want to
go home, the home I had before my birth. I want to be able to return
there having found the treasure. This is where happiness can be found,
and to get there I must be a man, not as the world would have me believe
a man is, but as a man of God.”
I read this and could not help but cry. I to would like to turn my life over to the lord to return to him. I know that with his help I will be able to return and stand before my father to feel his eternal love as a true “Man of God”.
Jeremy I hope that you are able to read this post. I hope that you don’t mind that I quoted your email, but there is no way that I would have been better able to say what you have. I pray that God may continue to watch over you and protect you until you return to your family and loved ones here.
