The Gift of Choosing

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Lately in a couple of my classes we have talked about life and how God has given us the gift of agency to make our own decisions in life, and how no matter where you come from, or what your circumstances are you have the power to choose for yourself the kind of life you want to have. What a wonderful thing! There are definitely some things in my life that I wish I could change, but at the same time I am grateful for. The experiences I've had in my life so far have made me who I am today and I have learned so much about myself and the potential I have as a child of God.

I know that we have all made the decision to come to this earth to have our faith tested and that if we nourish our relationship with our Father in heaven He will lead us in the ways that are best for us and for all of those who we have an affect on.

I have been blessed tremendously in my life. 
Just to name a few of my greatest blessings...

A loving family who will do anything for me
My amazing fiancé and his wonderful family
An amazing and prestigious college to receive an education at - BYU
Friends who have always been there for me when I needed it most and continue to do so
A country where I have the freedom to express myself and make something out of myself

There are definitely many others things that I have been blessed with in my life and I sometimes wonder why someone like myself has so many blessings. What did I do to deserve them? Then I remember - it's because I am loved by so many people and above all I am loved by my Heavenly Father. He's happy with me when I'm doing what's right and when I mess up He's there to help me realize I could be doing better and gives me the necessary tools like scriptures, prayer and church leaders that I can use to improve. 

Wanna know somethin' cool? He does this for everyone! I can promise you that. :)

Vida es bonita.
