trust

I gave a talk today in church. I spoke about the talk "Trust in God, Then Go and Do" by President Erying from the most recent General Conference.

|Chad and Lily - Pacific City, OR - last year|

I dont feel like posting my whole talk,
but I will share one chunk from it:

"All of us have done things that we felt was right, even when it was difficult, and maybe didn’t even make sense, but we knew in our hearts it was right.
Weather it was getting married, or maybe to not get married, maybe having children or waiting, maybe saying no to a job offer, maybe saying no to a date?
The point is: we did these things because we had trust in God. I think It is really important to remember, in times when we are struggling, the trust that we are capable of, or maybe the trust that you hope to be capable of."

I gave personal examples of when I have trusted in God and the blessings received.

Life can be hard. And hard in many different ways, but I know when we trust God, we find peace and we find answers.
