1. Someone I love & trust very much repeated inspiring things to me that I told him once.
2. I listened to this song:
3. I read this passage:
16 Behold, my soul delighteth in the things of the Lord; & my heart pondereth continually upon the things which I have seen & heard. 17 Nevertheless, notwithstanding the great goodness of the Lord, in showing me his great & marvelous works, my heart exclaimeth: O wretched man that I am! Yea, my heart sorroweth because of my flesh; my soul grieveth because of mine iniquities. 18 I am encompassed about, because of the temptations & the sins which do so easily beset me....[description of how the Lord has blessed Nephi] 26 O then, if I have seen so great things, if the Lord in his great condescension unto the children of men hath visited men in so much mercy, why should my heart weep & my soul linger in the valley of sorrow, & my flesh waste away, & my strength slacken, because of mine afflictions? 27 & why should I yield to sin, because of my flesh? Yea, why should I give way to temptations, that the evil one have place in my heart to destroy my peace & afflict my soul? Why am I angry because of mine enemy? 28 Awake, my soul! No longer droop in sin. Rejoice, O my heart, & give place no more for the enemy of my soul.
-from 2nd Nephi 4
4. I prayed.
It was a good recipe for peace. I'd recommend it.
I think I went a little heavy on the ampersands, though. I don't recommend that.
I'm so grateful for the testimony I gained today of hope
