HOW THIRSTY ARE YOU?


 When it is conference time, I reflect on the messages and ask myself; where am I in my relationship with my Heavenly Father, my Savior, Jesus Christ, my Eternal companion and my family? Am I following the Prophet and Apostles of today? Here are some questions and quotes that I would like to share on this subject.

REFLECTIONS
Have you ever yearned for happiness?
Are there places in your heart that are empty or filled with doubt?
Is there something that you long for that the world cannot satisfy?
 Have you ever felt inadequate?
Are there days when you wonder if you have anything to offer?
Have you ever wished there were someone who really knew you?
How have you learned to discover Christ in the everyday moments of your life.
When he comes to offer relief, do you recognize him?
Have you let the Savior begin to help you recognize your weaknesses?
What are you willing to give up to know Christ?
Have you placed your burdens at his feet?
When healing comes, do you remember to rejoice?
What are you certain of about Christ?
What do you know of Christ?
Where is the well that you visit daily?
How thirsty are you?
- By Emily Freeman from the Book, "The Woman At The Well"

"Where there are prophets of God, there will be found rivers of living water. Do we fill our buckets from the well of living water at General Conference? Do we attend sacrament meetings weekly and partake of the sacred emblems, living water that quenches spiritual thirst? In our family home evenings and private study, do we drink deeply? Or do we take just a sip from the cup and travel on sometimes thirsty and weary, despondent and discouraged." - Elder Bruce R. McConkie

" I cannot stress enough the importance of listening to and following the prophet and apostles. In today's world, where 24 hours a day television and radio commentators spew forth conflicting opinions, where marketers compete for everything from your money to your vote, there is one clear, unpolluted, unbiased voice that you can always count on. And that is the voice of the Living Prophet and Apostles. Their only motive is "the Everlasting welfare of your souls." - Elder M. Russel Ballard

Leann, I am so very grateful that I am a member of the church, and never more so than now. In a world that seems to be going ever increasingly crazy it is such a comfort to have the church in our lives and to be able to and want to listen to a Prophet's voice. XXOO

LeAnn, I loved your post! I loved General Conference too! Those are really great questions to ponder, sometimes I think we don't recognize the small learning moments in our life and the apostles are GREAT teachers!! Hope you are well! Love, Jess
