I know I have been bad at posting my spiritual thoughts. I have just been finding myself more occupied all of a sudden.
Wednesday- Alma 18:10
"Now when king Lamoni heard that Ammon was preparing his horses and his chariots he was more astonished, because of the faithfulness of Ammon, saying: Surely there has not been any servant among all my servants that has been so faithful as this man; for even he doth remember all my commandments to execute them."
As I read this I was thinking how I would hope that I could be like Ammon and be a faithful servant as I serve a mission and throughout the rest of my life. I would think how great it would be to remember what I have been commanded to do and live up to those standard the best I could!
Thursday- Alma 19:13
"For as sure as thou livest, behold, I have seen my Redeemer; and he shall come forth, and be born of a woman, and he shall redeem all mankind who believe on his name. Now, when he had said these words, his heart was swollen within him, and he sunk again with joy; and the queen also sunk down, being overpowered by the Spirit."
I love how king Lamoni experiences his conversion being overcome by the Spirit and shares his testimony with his wife and his household. As I serve my mission I am so excited to be able to share my testimony with others and how I have seen Jesus Christ in my life and the power of his atonement I have experienced. I know Jesus Christ is my Savior and my Redeemer. I love the scripture John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: No man cometh unto the father, but by me."
Today- Alma 20: 27
"And I will also grant unto thee that thy brethren may be cast out of prison, and thou and thy brethren may come unto me, in my kingdom: for I shall greatly desire to see thee. For the king was greatly astonished at the words which he had spoken, and also at the words which had been spoken by his son Lamoni, therefore he was desirous to learn them."
Now king Lamoni's father was saying this to Ammon and Lamoni that he is impress with them. As Ammon and Lamoni listened to the Spirit and did as they were asked they were able to act as an instrument in the Lord's hands. I hope that as I listen to the Spirit and serve the Lord throughout my life I can be an instrument in the Lord's hands in building is his kingdom upon the earth!
