I wonder what it felt like for Nephi? And maybe I only know a part... I mean I don't think I'm all macho manly/buff like the artists depictions of him are (like they are of every prophet in the BM). But I wonder how it felt for him when he did all the things that his books say he did. Was he scared? Was he ever discouraged? He seemed exactly obedient, a really good kid and the best of the best. He loved his family, and he loved his God. But I wonder what were his own struggles that he encountered... And I think he had his own battle within himself. He had to have his own conversion experience I think to really be able to do all that he did. And the scriptures don't say exactly what happened there, but they do say he had a change of heart, he cried unto God really for being human.
... and I feel like I can relate with that.
But I also wonder if Nephi was ever annoyed?
I feel like lately I've been getting annoyed far too easy. Not at anyone in particular, but to say really with people in general. And it's made me start to be annoyed even with myself. I feel like maybe I've become a little selfish lately... But I wanna try to do better.
This week is Father's Day and so to my Father. my dad, Happy Father's Day! and thank you for the example you've set for me in my life!
And now to my Father in Heaven.. what can I give you for Father's Day?
This question; it makes me think big, and makes me self-reflect. And to my family back home, i ask you What can you give your Father in Heaven this Father's Day?
Is is maybe even just a minute for him?
It's hard at times, but writing helps me bear it. And YOU help me bear it too.
Got to head to dinner! Peace and Blessings everybody!
