A Simple Testimony

I wasn't quite sure what I should write about for today. Usually I know just what I want to share with all those who read my blog. I have decided to keep it simple and share my testimony with all of you. But not in the traditional way..but instead by simply making a list, that lays straight out what I know to be true. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is something that I am so blessed to be able to shout to the roof tops!! I am blessed that I will have the opportunity to do that everyday on my mission. So here we go. 

I know that Jesus Christ is the son of God, the savior, our brother.
I know that we are all eternal brothers and sisters.

I know that Jesus Christ died for us and through him we can find relief from our sins, pains, iniquities, afflictions, and all the things that seem unfair about life can be made right through him.

I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the one true church on the face of the earth.

I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God. It testifies of Jesus Christ and goes hand in hand with the Bible. 

I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. That he saw God the Eternal Father and Jesus Christ and restored the Christ's Church.

I know that families can be together forever.

I know that our Heavenly Father hears and answers our prayers.

I know that we are loved by our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ more than we could possibly imagine.

I know that as we lean on our savior we can find ultimate relief.

I know that the scriptures provide strength. They bring peace and knowledge, and though them we can gain answers. 

I know that we can receive personal revelation.

I know that as we live the commandments we will feel peace.

I know that we have a living prophet on the earth today, Thomas S. Monson. I know that he speaks with God and can give us guidance. 

I know that we can grow and change everyday thanks to our Savior.

I know that the Spirit of God can direct us in our lives and can be with us always if we are living worth of it.

I know that faith brings miracles.

I know that we can all return to our Father in Heaven.

I know that these things are true without a shadow of doubt in my mind. I can not wait for the time where I can share this testimony with all those I come in contact with. Testimonies can be the most effective teaching method as we share from our hearts that which we know to be true. Never EVER. be afraid to let your testimony shine, to share it with others because you never know who can be touched my your simple but extraordinary witness. I leave these things with you in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

If you don't know these things to be true, I encourage you to pray and find out. This is the truth, the way, and the light.
