76. What would God have me do?

This might be one of the most important questions I ask myself, and I should ask it more often. I can charge through life wrapped up in my thoughts and my own wants, and forget that God has a different plan for me.

There are some things that I regret: I feel that I have failed or I have given up. But I forget that God knew where I was going in life, and prepared a way for me to do His will.

I can get overly focused on big things or on the past or the future. But God wants me to start doing little things right now that matter: spending a few minutes here or there in study, reflection, and service.

When I think of what He wants me to do, I better remember the gospel and the covenants I have made. I think more of other people, increasing in charity and love. I see my children and my family; my neighbors and my friends. And I feel that doing those little things that God wants of me is enough.

  1. Beautiful picture. I told a friend once that I was worried about really doing what God wanted me to. She just kind of looked at me and said I really didn’t need to worry about that, my life was in line with His will because I was trying. Or something like that. anyway it was comforting.
