This week has been… a wonderful learning opportunity 🙂
Have you ever studied the attributes of Christ? There are many and He was/is the perfect example of every virtue. At a first glance it is easy to say that one is more important than another. Perhaps it is our nature to assume that one thing is more important to attain than other, but I’m not sure that is the case.
When working out you don’t just bench press or only do pull ups, but you try to be well rounded. Back in high school I remember working out for sports and the coach would always have different exercises that we did each week so we would be well rounded in our heath. Some days would be agility, others endurance and my least favorite was core. The coach provided us with the work out plan and then it was up to us to give it our all and actually work and progress. In life it seems that Heavenly Father is the coach and He gives us the work out plan to increase and grow, but it is up to us to actually make the best out of the work out that we are going through. Some athletes that I have worked with would resent the coach and slack off if they were not being guided every single step of the way. Others took little to no prompting to push through and make the most of the opportunity they were given because they understood that it was all for their benefit.
This week has been an endurance workout and I have learned a lot 🙂
Enough random stuff. Let me tell you a wonderful thing-
One of our investigators has come to church not just once, but twice now! He brought his daughter with him and she told her primary teacher that she was surprised to see her father in a church and about how much she had enjoyed coming 🙂 It is so wonderful to get to teach this man! In the few weeks that we have known him an incredible change has been taking place. Literally every time we meet with him there is a tangible increase of light within him that can be clearly seen. He doesn’t just understand what we are teaching him, but he remembers and applies it as well! It is such a blessing and privilege to get to work with him and Sister Winkel and I could not be more grateful 🙂 The gospel is true and it changes lives! The light of Christ chases away darkness and illuminates possibilities that would not be accessible to us if it wasn’t for the atoning blood of our Savior Jesus Christ 🙂
