Exactly What I Need...

As now seems to be my early Sunday morning routine, I watched a Mormon Message video clip on YouTube. Today's was: Good Things To Come.

It was exactly what I needed to hear. Or rather, the gospel is exactly what I need.

Every so often, I feel down. And every time I do, I try to escape those feelings. On the internet you have access to just about anything so this is usually the tool I use. I try music, movies, manga, facebook, and whatever else I can think of. As a result, what was intended to be a late night usually turns into an early morning and a whole lot of zzzs to catch up on. More, more, more and it just never seems to be quite enough. It is when I turn myself to God that I get exactly what I need.

At the same time, I acknowledge that a person cannot always be happy. Life can't always be smiles and sunshine. To live you must experience both the bad and the good. I think I talked about this in my last blog entry, but I want to add to that. It's like what Elder Holland talked about in the video clip. We need to trust God that He knows what he's doing and that things will get better.

God knows exactly what we need.
