Happy Sunday: God's Words...Never Cease
Twice a year, the president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints--as well as the apostles and other general authorities of the Church--address us in a 2-day conference of spiritual instruction, council, and edification. They talk about things that are especially pertinent in our day and age (getting out of debt, raising single-parent families, the media, etc.) and things that have been pertinent since the beginning of time (forgiveness, charity, repentance, overcoming trials, etc.).
What a blessing it is to know that God still talks with His children. That he hasn't left us to fend for ourselves in this mad world. That he continues to have a prophet on Earth to be His mouthpiece--a solid guide for us to know God's will, how to be genuinely happy in this life, and what we must do to return to Him. God has worked through prophets since Adam and He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. This in no way rules out the blessing of receiving personal revelation through prayer and scripture study. He's just got our backs twice over.
Curious about what God's prophet has to say this weekend? Watch General Conference here.
