My life is better today.
None of my major stresses went away. Nothing big changed. It was a small change. The same one that's gotten me through a thousand other tough times.
I remembered to turn to God.
My life is always heaviest when I try to carry it alone.
Then something happens, like a reminder from a good friend, and I turn to God. And he smiles and says, "No wonder it's so heavy; you're carrying it all wrong. Plus, you're trying to carry all this other stuff that isn't even yours. Let me help you figure out what you really need to carry and how it fits just right on your shoulders."
I'm grateful for a good friend that reminded me to turn to God.
I'm grateful for the power of the priesthood that allows me to receive the blessings I need in difficult times.
I'm grateful for prayer, which enables the conversations I need to have.
And I'm especially grateful for an understanding that I am doing a good job, that He is there, and that we are in this together.
