If Ye Love Me, Keep My Commandments

I would like to share with you some notes a most recent General Conference Sunday afternoon talk called "If Ye Love Me, Keep My Commandments."
The talk is by Sister Carole M. Stephens.
"We can choose to see commandments as limitations. We may feel at times that God’s laws restrict our personal freedom, take from us our agency, and limit our growth. But as we seek for greater understanding, as we allow our Father to teach us, we will begin to see that His laws are a manifestation of His love for us and obedience to His laws is an expression of our love for Him.

If you find yourself figuratively parked on the side of the road, can I suggest a few principles that, if followed, will help you get safely back on the path of faith and obedience?

First: Trust God. Trust in His eternal plan for you.

Second: Trust Jesus. 
The ultimate expression of obedience and love is the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

Third: Trust the whisperings of the Spirit.

Fourth: Trust the counsel of living prophets.

There is safety in following the word of the Lord through His prophets."

Stay Tuned until next time.
