Choose This Day

This post is based on a April 2007 General Conference talk called "This Day by Henry B. Eyring." I loved listening and watching the Video below. If you have 5 minutes now or find 5 minutes in your spare time, I encourage you to watch the Video.
If you can't see the Video above, here's the link below

Readers, what did you think about the Video if you did watch it?
What did you learn from watching the Video? Do you like the Video?

I will be sharing with you some highlights that I liked while reading the talk.

"The quiet invitation to you may be to do so simple a thing as to forgive someone who has offended you. You can do that from a hospital bed. It may be to go to help someone who is hungry. But if you decide not to wait until you have more strength and more money, and if you pray for the Holy Spirit as you go, you will when you arrive know what to do and how to help someone even poorer than you are.

You may find when you get there that they were praying and expecting that someone like you would come, in the name of the Lord.

For those who are discouraged by their circumstances and are therefore tempted to feel they cannot serve the Lord this day, I make you two promises. Hard as things seem today, they will be better in the next day if you choose to serve the Lord this day with your whole heart. Your circumstances may not be improved in all the ways which you desire.

But you will have been given new strength to carry your burdens and new confidence that when your burdens become too heavy, the Lord, whom you have served, will carry what you cannot. He knows how. He prepared long ago. He suffered your infirmities and your sorrows when He was in the flesh so that He would know how to succour you.
You may remember the scripture: “I say unto you, I would that ye should remember to retain the name written always in your hearts that ye hear and know the voice by which ye shall be called, and also, the name by which he shall call you.

By serving Him this day, you will come to know Him better. You will feel His love and appreciation. You would not want to delay receiving that blessing. And feeling His love will draw you back to His service, wiping away both complacency and discouragement.

As you serve Him, you will come to know better the voice by which you shall be called. When you go to sleep at the end of a day, the words may come back in memory: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things.”

In your own time, you can read the whole talk, Here's the link below, and I hope you will enjoy reading it.

Stay Tuned until next time.
