Day Twenty Five: #lighttheworld

Today marks day twenty five of #lighttheworld. "Jesus’s Disciples Followed Him and So Can We"

When the Savior was born, a new light appeared in the heavens. He is the Light of the World not just on Christmas Day, but every day. Follow Him, and never walk in darkness again.

Today's scripture reference is found in Luke 9:23 and it reads the following; “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.”
I would like to share with you a video above about why we need a Savior and I know it is a very inspiring video. I encourage you to watch the video in your own time. If you can not see the video, here's the link to the video below. www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ly7c9scxB9I

Today is Christmas Day. I encourage you to think about and seeking answers to the following questions;
"Why do you celebrate Christmas?" "If you do not celebrate Christmas, what do you celebrate instead?"
"Do you celebrate Christmas?" "If you do celebrate Christmas, how do you celebrate Christmas?"

"Do you celebrate Christmas with your family and extended relatives?"
"Do you celebrate Christmas with your friends?"

"Do you remember the birth of Jesus Christ during Christmas season?"
"Do you think about all the presents that you receive on Christmas Day?"

"What does Christmas truly means to you?" "What does Christmas means to your extended relatives?"
"What does Christmas means to your immediate relatives?" "What does Christmas means to your friends?"

"What does Christmas means to your neighbours?" "What does Christmas means to your neighbours' relatives?"

In the world today, there are many people who are celebrating Christmas with their relatives and extended relatives. In the world today, there are some people who are celebrating Christmas alone. there are some people who does not celebrate Christmas.

I know we all can become like Jesus Christ if we choose to follow him. I know when we all choose to become like him, we will feel blessed and I know we will be able to acknowledge ourselves of how much he has done for us. He set continuous great examples. I know we can follow his examples and when we follow his examples, we can share it to others the happiness of the gospel that brings into our daily lives.

It may be hard at times to follow Jesus Christ's examples and that is okay. I know we all can choose to become a light to the world especially to the non-believers. I would like to you to watch the video in your own time.
If you can not see the video above, here's the link to the video below.      www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJmAV0gTp_Q
Merry Christmas to everyone, safe travels if you are traveling on this Christmas Day. Please remember the true meaning of Christmas during this Christmas season. I hope you will have a great day.

Day Twenty Four: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks twenty four of #lighttheworld. My goodness, is it really Christmas Day tomorrow? Can you believe it?

"Jesus Cared for His Loved Ones and So Can You"

Some of the most touching moments of Jesus Christ’s ministry involved His family and close friends. This Christmas, we can honor the birth of Jesus Christ by following His loving example of serving those who matter most in our lives.

Today's scripture is found in John 11:5-6 and it reads the following;

“5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.

6 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.”

I do not know if the Image that I have shared goes well if this post or not. If you can not see the Image below, it says "Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day ... unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear."

Well I actually did two Christ-like services last night, so a night early. Oops. So last night, I visited a close friend who I have not seen for awhile and I thought to have a quick catch up with her. I ended up being with that friend for almost two hours and half. It was really good because it has been a few weeks since I last saw her. While visiting her, I gave her a card and mentions a lot about me and her. I know it really cheered her up.

Another one was visiting my next door neighbour, I ordered a late dessert meal, dinner and drink for her, me and my two younger siblings to share. It was good because I know when people are less fortune than I am, really appreciate unexpected surprises and always good to know that I felt good by doing that for her.

Day Twenty Three: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day twenty three of #lighttheworld. "Jesus was a Peacemaker and You Can Be One Too"

During the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus Christ taught that peacemakers are called the children of God. We can earn that blessed title when we reach out to others in the spirit of forgiveness, reconciliation, and resolution.

Today's scripture is found in Matthew 5:9 and it reads the following;
“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”
I have shared an Image above and if you can not see it, it says "Blessed are the PEACEMAKERS."

My goodness, my evening was interesting. I would like to share with you one experience that happened tonight and it relates to this post's topic.

While I was working, I noticed my manager was not happy with a customer, he was getting frustrated and he was angry. I know how he felt. I must admit, at first, I did not know what to do because I was not able to find a quiet place to kneel down in prayer to ask forgiveness and soften his heart to change to become happy again.

So during my driving time to delivery to someone's order to their house, I was able to express to Heavenly Father how I felt, ask about forgiveness and change his heart. When I arrived back to one of the stores where I work at, I smiled and showed that I was very happy. I noticed my manager seemed happy again and he was grateful after dealing with that customer.

There is a saying that I like and that is "At times, we do fall short. At times, we do get frustrated at things even the little things. By the end of the day, we can always overcome those times in life by learning and acknowledging what we can do better next time when it happens again."

Day Twenty Two: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day twenty two of #lighttheworld. My goodness, can you believe it, Christmas is in three days? Aaah! I am excited but I do not think I am ready for it. I still have to go and do some Christmas shopping.

"Jesus Showed Gratitude and So Can You"

During the Last Supper, Jesus Christ told the Twelve Apostles that they weren’t just His disciples, they were His friends. Think about how those words must have made them feel, and remember that we, too, have the power to raise spirits as we show gratitude to others.

Today's scripture is found in Luke 10:21 and it reads the following;

“In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.”
I love the Image above, and if you can not see it, it says "gratitude changes everything."

I encourage you to think about the following question in your own time;
"In what ways can you apply gratitude in your everyday life?"

Day Twenty One: #lighttheworld

Today marks day twenty one of #lighttheworld. Can you believe it, today has reached three weeks ago since I started doing day/evening by day/evening of #lighttheworld. My goodness, time flies too quickly while I am working and sleeping in on most days. Less than five days left of doing #lighttheworld.

"Jesus Forgave Others and So Can You"

Jesus Christ showed compassion for those who loved Him and even for those who didn’t. On the cross, Jesus asked His Father to forgive those who crucified Him. We, too, can bring light into the world as we follow His example of forgiving others.

Today's scripture is found in Matthew 18:21-22 and it reads the following;

“21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.”

I encourage you to think about the following questions;
"When was the last time that you have forgiven someone?" "Was it last night?" "Was it this morning?"
"Was it a few days ago?" "Was it a few months ago?" "Was it a few years ago?" "Was it ages ago?"

"How did you feel after forgiving someone?" "Does it make you feel good inside?"
"Does it make you happy and look forward to move forward?"

I know it is hard to forgive people at times, but we need to forgive each day and each night because it is the right thing to do. I would like to encourage you to forgive others often through your daily prayers and nightly prayers.

I would like you to read the talk or watch the talk that is about a powerful story on forgiveness in your own time. I love the subheading and the subheading says "If we can find forgiveness in our hearts for those who have caused us hurt and injury, we will rise to a higher level of self-esteem and well-being."

Day Twenty: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day twenty. "Jesus Saw Potential in Others and So Can You"

The world saw fishermen; Jesus Christ saw Apostles. As we try to see the people around us the way Christ sees them, we can help them understand their potential.

Today's scripture is found in Mark 1:17 and it reads the following; “And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.”

Would you like to know what is our divine potential? If you do like you are one hundred percent certain, I strongly encourage you to click on the following link to find out and of course read it in your own time.
www.lds.org/general-conference/2003/10/realize-your-full-potential




I would like to share with you a little part of the talk that I love and it says,
"You are a precious young man or woman. Realize your full potential. Be the leader and example the Lord expects you to be. Young man, be a part of the greatest generation of missionaries. Worthy youth, prepare to receive the temple ordinances and to raise your eternal family. God loves you. I testify that as you seek His help, He will guide you to fulfill your worthy dreams."

Day Nineteen: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day nineteen of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Calmed the Storm and So Can You"

Jesus understood that life’s storms can take many shapes. Some storms rain down from the sky; other tempests come from within. The Master can calm all storms. When we follow His example, we can be a light in the lives of those going through turbulent times.

Today's scripture is found in Mark 4:37-40 and it is found in the following;
“37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.

38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?

39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?”

I encourage you to think about the following questions;
"Do you have a seventy two hour/two to three days survivual pack for when a bad natural disaster comes?"
"Are you prepared?" "Are you going to teach your neighbour how to be prepared right now instead later?"
"In what ways can you make sure that you are prepared?"

I really like the video from a link below and I would like you to watch it in your own time because it shows that when there is more helpers/more hands equals less work.

Day Eighteen: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day eighteen of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Honored the Sabbath and So Can You"

On the Sabbath, Jesus did His Father’s work as He healed the sick and attended to the needs of His disciples. As we strengthen the quality of our worship on the Lord’s day, we will find that Sunday truly is a day of rest, not just for the body but for the soul.

Today's scripture is found in Matthew 12:11-13 and it reads the following;
11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?

12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.

13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.”
I love the Image above and if you can not see what it says, it says "Always remember HIM" I know it is important for all of us to always remember the Savior on Sunday.

I always love making new goals, and always when I make goals, I always make sure some of my goals is gospel related. I made goals for me to go to the Temple often, have personal prayers each day and every evening, have scripture reading each day, and many other goals. It is just some ways that I know that if I accomplish of doing those things, I am drawing myself closer to Heavenly Father.

Day Seventeen: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day seventeen of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Cared for His Mother and So Can You"

Mary was in Bethlehem to bring Jesus Christ into the world. And as He left the world behind, she was there, as well. In the midst of His deepest suffering, Jesus looked upon His mother with love and concern. He commanded the Apostle John to care for her as if she were his own mother. Today, Christ’s words apply to us, too: “Behold thy mother.”

Today's scripture reference is found in John 19:25-27 and it reads the following;
“25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.

26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!

27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.”

I didn't have a close relationship with my Mum as I was growing up from birth to my mid teens. I started and strived my hardest to have a close relationship with my Mum when I was sixteen years or seventeen years. I know that may seem late but to me, it was not late. It was better to be late than never.

I am very grateful to have a Mum who cares about me, who supports me, who loves me, who supervise me when I was learning how to drive, who I can learn some lessons from her and I am very grateful for many other things.
I like the Image above and if you can not see it, it says "A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take."

Day Sixteen: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day sixteen of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Showed Compassion and So Can You"

The most succinct verse in the Bible tells us simply, “Jesus wept.” And yet it speaks volumes about the compassion Jesus Christ felt for others. Like Him, we can respond to suffering with concern, mercy, and healing.

Today's scripture reference is found in Matthew 14:14 and it reads the following;
“And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.”

I constantly pray for people who is aflicted so they can get healed quicker. It is wonderful how prayer works. It is wonderful whenever I pray for asking my sore back to be at ease like not being sore much, it heals. It is a matter of strong faith and trust in Heavenly Father that it will happen.
I really like the Image says above. If you can not see the Image above, it says "If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. - Dalai Lama."

Day Fifteen: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day fifteen of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Worshipped through Song and So Can You"

During the Last Supper, on the eve of the most difficult and trying moments of His life, Jesus sang hymns with His disciples, showing us the strength we can find as we worship through song.

Today's scripture reference is found in Matthew 26;26-30 and it reads the following;

“26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.

30 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.“

Day Fourteen: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day fourteen of #lighttheworld. Isn't it crazy, it has been two weeks ago since I started sharing #lighttheworld each day? My goodness, time flies while I have been keeping busy in between of updating this blog, updating another two blogs, working at Dominos Pizza, attending sessions at Brisbane Temple once a week and spending some time with my relatives.

"Jesus Taught Us to Clothe the Naked and You Can Help"

Jesus Christ taught that our possessions are most valuable when we give them away especially with His admonition to clothe the naked. Through the act of giving, our clothing can provide the same warmth provided by the swaddling clothes that encircled the newborn King.

Today's scripture reference is found in Matthew 25:38-40 and it reads the following;
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
I do not have a clue of what Image that goes along well with this post, so I selected a random one. If you can not see the Image above, it says "Smiles are always in FASHION!"

There is another scripture that I really like and it goes perfectly for today's #lighttheworld. The scripture talks about we can learn from a wise king how we should love those in need and the scripture reference is found in Mosiah 4:14-27. I encourage you to read the scripture in your own time and the link of the scripture is below.

Day Thirteen: #lighttheworld

Oops, two posts that has been posted yesterday. I hope you didn't mind. This post is short and sweet. Today marks day thirteen of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Showed Humility and So Can You"

Whether washing the feet of His Apostles or bending under the weight of unimaginable suffering, Jesus Christ showed us that true strength comes from true humility.

Today's scripture reference is found in Luke 22:41-42 and it reads the following;
“41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,

42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.”

I encourage you to think about the following questions.
"How can you apply humility in your everyday life?"
"In what ways can you show humility to someone who is related to you?"

"In what ways can you show humility to someone who is a friend to you?"
"In what ways can you show humility to someone who is your neighbour?" 


I like the Image above, and if you can not see the Image above, it says "Humility isn't denying your strengths, it's being honest about your weaknesses."

Would you agree with what the Image says? What are your thoughts about the Image?

I am Successful!

This post is short and sweet. 

What do successful means to you? Did you know that you successful in this life even when you do not think you are? 
Have you ever think about you are successful in many things more than you think you are? 
What are some successful achievements have you accomplished in this life so far? 
I like the Image above. If you can not see the Image above, it says "I am successful in all areas of my life, and every day, in every way, I get better and better." 

In life, I am successful in many things and even some things that I thought I won't ever achieve. It has been two years and a few months ago since I obtained my driver's licence. It has been a little over three years ago since graduating High School/Senior, completing some certificate courses and graduating Seminary successfully. 

At this present day, I know I am successful and doing well in life because I run my own Photography Business for five months and I am an employee at Dominos Pizza for almost three weeks. I have completed many courses. I always start my day with personal prayer and scripture reading. I always strive my best to have great attendance to go to the Temple often. 

I always strive my best to be involved with Missionary work. I dedicate a lot of my time to the gospel a lot because the gospel brings me true happiness! 

I encourage you to think about in what ways do you think you are successful in your life for the future.

Day Twelve: #lightheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day twelve of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Taught Others and So Can You"

History’s most powerful lessons weren’t taught in a classroom, but on a hillside, aboard a ship, and along the dusty roads of Palestine. Like Jesus, we can find important teaching moments anywhere all we have to do is look for them.

Today's scripture reference was found in Matthew 5:1-3 and it reads the following;
“1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:

2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Day Eleven: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day eleven of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Ministered to Children and So Can You"

As we reflect on the babe in swaddling clothes this Christmas, we should also reflect on the actions of the adult Savior, who asked His disciples to “suffer the little children to come unto me.” If He made time for them, so can we.
Today's scripture reference is found in Mark 10:13-14 and it reads the following;
“13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.

14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.”

Day Ten: #lighttheworld

Today marks day ten of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Helped People to Walk and So Can You"

Jesus does not just invite us to follow Him. He gives us the power to do it. In His day, He healed those who could not walk and helped them rise physically and spiritually. Today, we live in a world that offers more ways than ever to assist those living with limited mobility, giving us an unprecedented opportunity to follow the Savior.

Today's scripture is found in John 5:5-9 and it reads the following;
“5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.

8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.

9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.”
I like the Image above, and if you can not see the Image above, it says "Always walk like you deserve to be right where you are. Black Lapel."


For you to know, I do not know how to walk so I know it feels for people who does not know how to walk. This life is not easy for not knowing how to walk, but I know one day I will be able to walk.

Day Nine: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day nine of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Visited the Lonely and So Can You"

Through His words and actions, Jesus taught that “the last shall be first.” With limitless compassion, He reached out to those isolated by disease, sin, and grief. When we strive to ease the loneliness of others, in the Savior’s words, we “have done it unto [Him].”
I like to be alone but I hate being lonely.

Today's scripture is found in Matthew 25:35-36 and it reads the following;
“35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.”

Day Eight: #lighttheworld

Today marks day eight of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Prayed for Others and So Can You"

Some of Jesus Christ’s most enduring words weren’t directed to His disciples but rather to His Father in Heaven as He prayed on behalf of others. As we seek to improve our prayers, we can look to Christ as our ultimate example.

I love Image above and if you can not see the Image above, it says "When you can't put your prayer into words, God hears your heart."

Today's scripture is found in Matthew 6:9-13 and it says the following;

“9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”

I encourage you to think about and answer the following questions in your own time.
"Will you pray for others today?" "Will you encourage someone else to pray for others today?"


When was the last time that you prayed for others who isn't related to you?"
"When was the last time that you prayed for others who isn't your friends?"

"When was the last time that you prayed for your friends?"
"When was the last time that you prayed for your family?"

 "Have you ever prayed for others?" "Do you know how to pray?"

When a multitude of thousands gathered to hear Jesus speak, He miraculously turned five loaves and two fishes into a meal for all, leaving none hungry. Today, it is our opportunity to help feed others. Explore the many ways you can help make the Christmas season a feast for everyone.

I will strive my best to invite someone for dinner but most likely it's not going to happen because I will be working this afternoon to this evening. However I did paid fast offering with tithing on Sunday just gone. Today's scripture is found in Matthew 14:19 and it reads the following;

Day Six: #lighttheworld

Today marks day six of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Read the Scriptures and So Can You" - Jesus Christ’s mastery of the scriptures began in His boyhood. When we search the word of God, we can also find inspiration, refuge, and power.

I must admit, I used to be very lack of reading my scriptures daily and I have been reading the scriptures for the last three months and two weeks. It has been great to read the scriptures daily.
Today's scripture is found in Luke 4:16-18 and it reads the following;

“16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,

18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.”

I encourage to think about the following question.
"What is your favourite scripture?"

I would like to share with you my favourite scripture. It is found in Doctrine and Covenants, 90:24 and it reads the following; "Search diligently, pray always, and be believing, and all things shall work together for your good, if ye walk uprightly and remember the covenant wherewith ye have covenanted one with another."

Day Five: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day five of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Healed the Sick and So Can You"

Jesus Christ had unique empathy for the suffering of others. While many in His day overlooked the sick, Jesus sought them out. Today, we can provide comfort and love to those struggling with physical ailments just as He did.
Today's scripture is found in Matthew 8:2-3 and it reads the following;
“2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.”

Today, I will be praying for those are sick and unwell to get better soon.

Day Four: #lighttheworld

Today marks day four of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Worshipped His Father and So Can You" - Though Jesus was praised as a master teacher and miracle worker, everything He did was to glorify His Father in Heaven. Like Jesus, we can worship God to find strength and guidance for everyday challenges.

Today's scripture is found in John 17:1-2 and it reads the following;

“1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.”

I encourage you to invite someone who is not a member of your faith to church service with you. If you do, I have that someone will have a wonderful day. Remember it is a Sabbath Day and remember to keep this day Holy. I also encourage to think about the following questions;

"In what ways can you worship God?" and "In what ways can one of your friends worship God?"
I love the Image above because it is a great quote about Sabbath Day and I hope you like it too. If you can not see the Image above, it says "Keeping the Sabbath Day Holy is much more than just physical rest. It involves spiritual renewal and worship. - James E. Faust."

Today, I will be attending Church in my area.

Day Three: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. Today marks day three of #lighttheworld.

"Jesus Helped Others to See and So Can You." - As the Light of the World, Jesus Christ was born so that no one would have to live in darkness. He miraculously healed the blind, but that’s far from the only way Jesus Christ can open our eyes. Today, there are many ways we can help others and ourselves to see the things that matter most.

Today's scripture reference is found in John 9:6-7 and it reads the following;

“6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,

7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.”
I like the Image that I have shared above about blind. I hope it relates to this post. If you can not see the Image above, it says "The Only Thing Worse Than Being Blind Is Having Sight But No Vision."

I can not imagine myself of being blind. I encourage you to think about the following question,
"In what ways can you help others to see?"

I also encourage you to watch a video about a guy who is blind. The link is www.mormon.org/jasons

Day Two: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. This day marks day two of #lighttheworld. "Jesus Honored His Parents and So Can You" - Jesus Christ is the King of kings, but as a child He loved and respected His earthly parents, Mary and Joseph. As we find ways to honor our parents, we can learn from our parents, just as Jesus did.
Today's scripture is found in Luke 2:46-51 and it reads the following;

 “46 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.

47 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.

48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.

49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?

50 And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.

51 And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart."

Today, I honour in everything what my Mum has said by being obedient.

Day One: #lighttheworld

This post is short and sweet. I have a friendly reminder and that is each day/evening, I will be posting something to do with #lighttheworld. Today marks day one of #lighttheworld.

"Jesus Lifted Others’ Burdens and So Can You" - No shoulders have ever borne as much as those of Jesus Christ. By descending below all things, Jesus put Himself in a position to lift our burdens. When we lend our strength to those who are weighed down by life’s challenges, even the heaviest load can be made lighter.

Today's scripture is found in Matthew 11:29-30 and it reads the following;
“29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

I encourage you to think about the following questions and before watching the following video.
"In what ways can you lift others' burdens?" and "In what ways can you lift your own burdens?"

All Responsibilties Starts in the Home

This post is short and sweet. I must admit for the past few days has been a little different to my schedule from last week. I am serious. I have been planning a lot better and planning back up plans a lot better. I have been slowly to become the best person who I can be.

For the past few days including today, I have been helping my Mum. She has asked me to drop off my two siblings who still lives at home to take them to their schools. My first day, I failed because I love my sleep ins and I totally forgot.
When my Mum finished work that morning and after she arrived home after work, I felt discouraged and I decided to hug her. I encouraged myself to say that I was so sorry. Sometimes it is not easy to show that I am truly sorry other than seeking forgiveness through personal prayers.

I learned that I do have a responsibility and that was to drop off my two younger siblings to their schools because my Mum has work in early mornings. I encourage you to always remember your responsibilities in the home and all responsibilities starts in the home.

Take responsibility to either cheer someone up who is feeling down, help someone if you see someone is moving into their new home, help someone if they need help with transport to places, and many more ideas.

I promise you if you do take responsibility, you will feel a happier person.

Happy Birthday Christine

This post is short and sweet. Today is one of my close friends's Birthday today. My close friend's name is Christine. I still remember meeting Christine for the first time. Christine told me the other day what was her first impression when she first met me and she thought that I was a Returned Missionary because I have so much knowledge and understanding about the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Christine,
if you are reading this post right now, I would like to wish you a Happy Birthday and I hope you had an amazing day.
I love talking to you about anything, I love talking to you via long phone calls often, I love texting you and I love messaging back and forth with you via facebook messages. The longest phone call has over three hours and it makes me so happy that you are one of my close friends.

Again, Happy Birthday and have a great day.

Keep Reading the Scriptures

This post is based on scriptures. First and foremost, I would like to encourage you to think about and answer the following questions in your own time.

"What is your honest purpose while you are reading the scriptures?" "Do you read the scriptures for direction?"
"Do you read the scriptures for seeking unanswered questions?" "Do you read the scriptures with real intent?"
"What is your understanding about the scriptures?" "Do you have a lot of understanding about the scriptures?"
"Do you have a little of understanding about the scriptures?"

"What does the scriptures mean to you as an individual?" "Does the scriptures mean a lot to you?"
"Does the scriptures means a little to you?"

"What does the scriptures means to your family?" "Does the scriptures means a lot to your family?"
"Does the scriptures mean a little to your family?"

"How often do you study the scriptures?" "When was the last time did you studied the scriptures?"
"Was it this morning?" "Was it this afternoon?" "Was it this evening?" "Was it a few days ago?"
"Was it a few weeks ago?" "Was it a few months ago?" "Was it a few years ago?"

"When was the last time did you take the time and read the scriptures?" "Was it a few days ago?"
"Was it this morning?" "Was it this afternoon?" "Was it this evening?" "Was it a few days ago?"
"Was it a few weeks ago?" "Was it a few months ago?" "Was it a few years ago?"

I encourage you to read the scriptures for one page or read the scriptures for at least five minutes a day. If you do read the scriptures for one page or read the scriptures for at least five minutes a day, you will feel that you would like to continue reading the scriptures more often and learn how to appreciate the scriptures more in your life.

We can liken the scriptures to our lives. The scriptures was written for our day/the last days. Always remember to pray to invite the spirit to be with you before reading the scriptures because it makes more meaningful while you read the scriptures and you will learn something new.

Do Not Ever Self Doubt Yourself

First and foremost, I am not amazing, I am a human being like you. Heavenly Father is amazing. Heavenly Father kept making me feel so much happiness, he also kept comforting me whenever I am feeling down, he also kept teaching me new life lessons including the little ones, he also kept ensuring me to know that I am not alone whenever I am physically alone and so on.

This afternoon, I had almost one hour sleep because I was feeling very tired and I did not want to think about food. It was Fast Sunday. After almost one hour sleep, my Mum woke me up and told me that the home teachers are here. At first, I complained a little bit because I was still feeling so tired.

After I spoke to the home teachers, I was not able to go back to sleep and I started to think about what I would like to achieve for the remaining of this day to this evening. Complaining is definitely one of my current weaknesses that I need to work on. I need to stop complaining.

I self doubt myself because I thought I did not have enough fuel in my car to go to a Young Single Adult fast breaker. I contacted two inactives Young Single Adults in my ward to invite them to come along to the Fast Breaker and they mentioned that they were not able to come.

I also have contacted two active Young Single Adults in my ward to invite them to come along to the Fast Breaker and they mentioned that they are not going either. I knew three other Young Single Adults who active in my ward were not able to go because of family commitments. I was starting to feel a little frustrated. It is okay to feel frustrated at times.
I have been informed via text messages that Forest Lake Ward Young Single Adults was having a Fast Breaker this evening but it is about forty minutes drive east away from home, I also have been informed via text messages that my stake Ipswich West Stake YSAs was also having a Fast Breaker but it is about thirty five minutes west drive from home.

Luckily, I was able to contact one of my great friends and the moment when she eventually sent me a text message of the address to her ward Young Single Adult Fast Breaker, I was very happy. Her ward Young Single Adults Fast Breaker was about fifteen minutes north drive from home.

I learned to not self doubt myself, and I know that I rarely self doubt myself at times. I know whenver I do self doubt myself, I do also feel discouraged and feel down.

I strongly encourage you to do not self doubt yourself in things that you do not think that you can achieve things, because when you have faith and trust in Heavenly Father, you are able to achieve things.

A Very Good Week

I thought this post is going to be short and sweet. First and foremost, I encourage you to think about and answer the following questions in your own time.

"When was the last time did you experienced a very good week?" "Was it this week or has it been a few weeks or so?" "What do you consider a very good week?" and "When you have a very good week, how does it make you feel?"

This week was a very good week to me because I have achieved many great things during this week and that makes me so happy. I love using my time wisely, being productive and keeping busy. Each day during this week has been involved a lot of SERVICE.
If you can not see the Image above, it says "By Love Serve One Another."

Some highlights during the week:

Monday:
During the daytime, it was spending time with both Camira Ward Sisters and Goodna Ward Sisters on their pday.
During the evening, it was attending a Family Home Evening at a members home/a family with the Goodna Ward Sisters.

Tuesday: 
During the daytime, it was taking Camira Ward Sisters to be dropped off in their area, also going out with the Goodna Ward Sisters for going to their Zone Conference and I learned a lot. During the evening, I attended a Baptistry Session and then I attended Institute.

Wednesday: 
During the daytime, I did five hours service project with both Camira Ward Sisters and Goodna Ward Sisters and it was fun teaching a non-member English with the Forest Lake Ward Elders.

Thursday: 
During the daytime, it was taking my two younger siblings who still lives at home to help with transport to their schools and helping next door neighbour with getting her shopping done.

I would like to encourage you to think about and answer the following questions in your own time.
"How was your week?" "Did you have a most favourite day during the week?"
"Did you serve anyone during the week?" "Did you go to the Temple during the week?"
"Did you achieved a lot? It is alright if you did not achieved a lot, always next week to do better."

Please keep yourself busy, keep striving your best to become a better person than you were yesterday,
keep smiling, keep praying, keep going, keep making new plans, keep making new back up plans,
keep looking up, keep making new short term goals, keep making long term goals,
keep looking up, and so on.

Kind

This post is short and sweet. I encourage you to think about and answer the following questions,
"What does the word kind means to you?" "Do you like striving your best to be kind to everyone?"
"Do you speak kind words to everyone who you meet for the first time?"

This post is based on a song called "Kind" by Jenny Philips. The vocals is by Brooke Stone. The song is in EMBARK In the Service of God ablum; Songs for Young Women. I would like to share with you my favourite parts while I was listening to the song.

"So much hurt, so many heartless words in this world.
Too much pain, too many souls who ache needlessly.

We need more tenderness. Oh, how this world needs. More thoughtfulness,
more words filled with gentleness. Let the Savior's love inside your heart.

It's part of who you are. You were designed to be kind.

Chorus:

Kind when wronged. Kind to enemies.
Kind to conflict. Kind when you are weak."
If you can not see the Image above, it says "BE KIND. For everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."

We all need to be kind to our loved ones who we do not get along with.
We all need to be kind to our enemies and need to be kind to our friends.

Start being kind today! I encourage you to listen to the whole song in your own time if you can find the whole song.

SERVICE

Service makes me feel happy. Does service makes you feel happy? I miss using my time wisely with a lot of service lately. I miss helping the Forest Lake Elders, helping the Goodna Ward Sisters, helping the Camira Ward Sisters and helping the Karana Downs Ward Elders. I would like share with you what was my highlights for today.

When I woke up this morning, I felt like I did not want to stay at home because I was used to a new routine of being away from home for the most of the day. It was not until around 1pm when I left home for today and I drove to the mechanics because the fan belt of my car needed to be tightened and it was free to fix.

While I was waiting for that to get done, I was thinking and writing some plans for the remaining of this week and all plans for next week. I decided to call next door's neighbour to see if she would like to go to the bank, go to the library, get her shopping done, and get other things done. She said "Yes."

The moment when she said, "Yes," I was filled with happiness because I was looking forward to do more service. My fuel for my car was half-full when I picked up the next door's neighbour. We went to the bank at Riverlink, then we went to the department of transport in Ipswich, then we went to the Ipswich Library for one hour and ten minutes, then we went to Drakes/Super IGA at Yamanto, and then we went home.
While we were at the local Library; we both used the computers, I was able to contact my Mum's parents to find out if they can look after my brother after school and I was able to contact my brother's school's office to say to my brother to go to my Mum's parents after school. The next door's neighbour was able to do a few other things.
 
She was suggesting that she would like to get only cheese at a local supermarket. I told her I would be happy to drive elsewhere to go to the supermarket that might want to change her mind about buying one item. It amazes me so much that while I was doing service by providing a lift for the next door's neighbour and helped with the shop, it made me happy.

I strongly encourage you to help someone, it can be anyone starting from today. You can help brighten someone's day by visiting him or her. You can call a friend that you have not spoken to for a long time, you can go and volunteer at a local nursing home, etc.

If you can not see the Image that I have shared for this post, it says "By giving SERVICE to others, I give SERVICE to God."

Five Hours Service Project and Helping in Other Ways

This post is another long post like the previous post. This post is based on some highlights of my day today and my evening tonight. It was all about service! I had a massive day today and long evening this evening. I set alarm to wake up around 9:20am, but I was woken up early around 8am by my Mum because she has other plans and she would like me to take and drop off my two younger siblings to their schools.

At first, I was not happy about it but not long after I said my personal morning prayer, I felt glad that I woke early because I was able to achieve so much today. After saying my personal prayer, I read a few sections of The Doctrine and Covenants. I did not have a proper breakfast, oops.

After dropping off my two younger siblings to their schools, I went to a job agency where I have to go every two weeks to report my job search for two weeks and I arrived super early. I arrived around one hour earlier than my set time for my appointment. After walking out of the appointment, I received a phone call from Forest Lake Ward Elders, a phone call from my Dad, a phone call from Camira Ward Sisters and Goodna Ward Sisters.

Please do not call me Miss Popular. Hahaha! I am serious because all phone calls was not long, it was about three minutes to five minutes each. I spent five hours service project with Camira Ward Sisters and Goodna Ward Sisters to help cleaning at a non-members's family home. It was fun! Before the service project, we had prayer and a scripture that is found in Doctrine and Covenants, Section 88: verse 119. We were all listening to church music as we were cleaning the house.
Another highlight was eating pizza and drinking softdrinks (soda) for lunch. After spending time with the Sisters, I started heading my way to Forest Lake Ward Boundaries. The Forest Lake Ward Elders called me and it was fun to have a conversation with them because I was lost and they were able to assist a little about what to do. 

After the phone call, I did not prayer for direction. I tried to use my old phone as a GPS and it did not work. I felt down because I kept taking the wrong turns, I was getting annoyed and I wanted to cry. I did not like arriving at appointments super late even if it is a little late. I called the Forest Lake Ward Elders.

I expressed to the Elders that I was lost. The Elder answered the call, put his companion on to give me direction of how to get to their appointment. I was arriving super late. When I eventually arrived, I felt peace and felt relief. Thanks to the Forest Lake Ward Elders so much for directing me how to get to their appointment. The appointment that the Elders went to teach was a nonmember family and the background of the family is not English, it is Iraq (Middle East, Asia).

One Elder was helping a young girl with her math, the other Elder was helping a teenage young woman with her literacy and I was helping a young boy with his reading and sight words. It was so much fun! Afterwards, a Elder encouraged the teenager to read the first page of The Plan of Salvation pamphlet. It was wonderful to understand that she was striving her best to read in English.

I was able to share a brief testimony about The Book of Mormon that it relates to our day, when we start reading it, we would like to read more, etc. Sometime after that appointment, Elder Winter has thanked me for sharing my testimony and complimented about my testimony, He mentioned my testimony was short but powerful which makes me feel so good inside that my testimony was powerful. This evening, I was looking after my two younger siblings.

That is all for now. If you can not see the Images that I have shared for this post, it does not mention anything. It just shows three photos that was taken today. Top photo is me and Alexis. Bottom Right is me wearing a hat.

Bottom Left is me and Sister Li - she is one of Goodna Ward Sisters.

Blessings plus Miracles equals happiness and joy

I would like to share with you some of my highlights about what I have been doing for the past few days. I have witnessed a lot of Blessings and Miracles. I have been so busy with focusing on Missionary work.

Both Camira Ward Sisters and Goodna Ward Sisters does not have the use of a car. 

On Sunday afternoon; I was with my current ward Elders to teach an investigator about The Book of Mormon. The questions based around The Book of Mormon from that investigator's friend was amazing. The investigator's friend quickly looked through The Book of Mormon and he decided that he would like to start reading The Book of Mormon before the Elders visit the investigator and his friend again.

On Monday: It was a busy day. I spent the morning with my Mum. Sometime after 1pm, I filled up my car. I picked up Camira Ward Sisters and Goodna Ward Sisters from Goodna, we went to a library for them to email home and of course, I joined with them. Eventually, I dropped them both to their flat and I joined with the Goodna Ward Sisters for Family Home Evening at a members home and the members's background is Tongan.

It was so awesome for the Family Home Evening because there was a non-members's family was present. I shared a few great insights during Family Home Evening. After Family Home Evening, we all had dinner and dessert. Eventually, I dropped Goodna Ward Sisters at their flat and I went to a close childhood friend's house to stay over night.

Today: I woke up after having three hours and thirty minutes to four hours sleep. I had personal prayer and some scripture reading. While I was driving to the Sisters's flat, it was raining and the rain stopped not long after I arrived at there. Camira Ward Sisters got picked up by a van full a Missionaries, it was super crazy thing that I ever seen.

I picked up the Goodna Ward Sisters and I went to their Zone Meeting. It was fanstatic. I really enjoyed the Meeting. I shared a few great Insights. After the Zone Meeting, we had lunch out and then sometime after that, we went back to the flat. Camira Ward Sisters was back. I dropped off the Goodna Ward Sisters and I picked up the Camira Ward Sisters.

I was going to take the Camira Ward Sisters to the bus stop, but I have offered them that I will take them to all the way where they are going to track/finding/door knocking. I noticed my fuel kept displaying full as the area where they went for track/finding/door knocking is near Forest Lake Ward boundaries.

My fuel was slowly not being so full after dropping them off. I drove back to the flat and I picked up the Goodna Ward Sisters. We went to visit a few less actives but they were not home. We also went to the Post Office to send something to the Mission Home. Sometime after that, we went back to the flat.

After a long day with providing service for both of the Goodna Ward Sisters and Camira Ward Sisters, I decided to go to the Temple. While I was at the Temple, I was sitting in the Waiting Room and I was holding a spare skirt. I did not fully understand why other than I would like to wear the skirt myself.

I was waiting for about ten to fifteen minutes, I met a young woman named Sarah Williams. She did not have any skirt or wearing any church clothes for attending a session at the Temple. Thank goodness, I had that skirt that I was holding on and I gave it to Sarah to borrow. The skirt perfectly fits her better than it does on me. Hahaha!
Me and her was able to attend a Baptisty Session together. It was wonderful opportunity because the names that I did on behalf, most of the names was immediate family members as sisters. I felt the names that I have done on behalf, has accepted the Gospel and must have waited for so long to be baptised.

After attending the session, I went to Institute. I thought I was running late to Institute. When I found out that I was not running late, I was so amazed and so happy. I learned heaps at Institute and I shared a few great Insights. Sometime after Institute, the teacher who taught the lesson has thanked me for my great insights.

I was so proud of myself. After socialising, arranging plans with the Goodna Ward Sisters and Camira Ward Sisters via text messages and calls and on Facebook for a short two minutes, I decided to go back inside the Temple. I felt so much happy.

As I walked outside the Temple, I seemed to be so happy and filled with so much joy! I learned "I may seem to be tired because of not getting enough sleep but I do know one thing for this topic and that is Heavenly Father always make sure that I have a good night sleep/plenty of rest/wake up refresh in the morning whenever I pray for it to happen."

I eventually decided to go home. As I driving further away from the Temple and about thirty minutes from home, my car did not like me because my fuel was not as a full than it was this afternoon around fifteen minutes before arriving at the Temple and it was on track to go on halfway and I was not happy. Oh well.

I know I will always receive blessings whenever I am striving my best to be exact obedient to Heavenly Father, the promptings of the Holy Ghost, and so on. I know that sometimes I do not acknowledge the blessings straight away because of distractions gets in the way but when the blessings do come, I always filled with happiness and joy.

My Two New Favourite Scripture Verses

First and foremost, I am sure that you may find it annoying after for awhile of me sharing short and sweet posts. Haha, I am serious. Am I right? It is alright if you answered no, I am wrong. If you answered yes, I am so sorry.

Did you notice that I was off Facebook for the most of the past three weeks?
You may ask me, "Where have you been for the past three weeks?"

For the past three weeks, I have been so busy. I have been so busy reading The Book of Mormon and I have learned a lot. I have completed reading The Book of Mormon this morning and I was able to commit to stay off Facebook for the most three weeks. Instead of being on Facebook; I was able to use my time more wisely and effectively. I seemed to be a more happier person than I was four weeks ago.

Always remember Heavenly Father is the same, yesterday, today and forever.

While I reading The Book of Mormon, I kept marking new scripture verses that I loved and two of those scripture verses became my favourite scripture verses. I would like to share with you where those scripture verses are found, what do they say and why are they my favourite.

2 Nephi: Chapter 31, verse 20 
"Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold thus saith the Father; Ye shall have eternal life."

It is my favourite scripture verse because I know whenever I press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, I always seem to become a better and more happier person. Feasting upon the word of Christ is like reading the scriptures, and I know whenever I read the scriptures, it helps me to have a closer relationship with Heavenly Father.

Mosiah: Chapter 4, verse 30
"But this much I can tell you, that if ye do not watch yourselves, and your thoughts, and your words, and your deeds, and observe the commandments of God, and continue in the faith of what ye have heard concerning the coming of our Lord, even unto the end of your lives, ye must perish. And now, O man, remember, perish not."

It is my favourite scripture verse because I know if I am not careful about my thoughts, my actions, my words, etc, there are serious consquences and I know if I am careful about my thoughts, my actions, my words, etc, I would be more aware about the consquences.
If you can not see the Image that I have shared above for this post, it says "The Book of Mormon is the best guide to learn how well we are doing and how to do better. - Henry B. Eyring."

If you ever have a spare moment, please read the scriptures. Always remember to invite the spirit to be with you while you are reading the scriptures because it makes the reading more meaningful and helps you to learn something new.

Happy 14th Birthday Rebekah!

This post is short and sweet. This post is based on wishing my youngest sister Rebekah a Happy 14th Birthday.
Can you believe that Rebekah has turned fourteen years old today? Where did the time go?

I still remember holding Rebekah when she was a baby for the first time and I can not believe that was almost fourteen years ago. I would like to wish my youngest sister Rebekah a Happy 14th Birthday and I hope she had a very good day. It feels like just yesterday when I was turning fourteen years old and I still remember that day.
Yikes that was six years ago when I was fourteen years old. I can not believe it has taken Rebekah fourteen years to be taller than me. I feel so short next to her. Again, I would like to wish her a Happy 14th Birthday and I hope that she had a very good day.

I am a Princess

This post is short and sweet. If you are a young woman or elderly woman who is reading this post at this present now/right now, you do not have to have a tiara on your head to define you as a Princess. I already know that you are a Princess in your heart. While I was cleaning my bedroom recently, I found a very simple and little note and I would like this post to be based on that note.
If you can not see the Image above, it says "Im a princess"

It mentions, "I am a Princess
Deep inside my young heart lies the one I want to be. And deep inside my soul I find the seeds of divinity. Now and then I see glimpses of the woman I can become. I know someday I'll find her here if I don't give up.

Everyday I'm closer to the one I want to be. And slowly I'm uncovering my heavenly qualities and I'll continue working toward the woman I can become. Developing my qualities through service and through love. I am a princess, a royal Queen I'll be.

So I must choose to find and use my divine qualities. Daughter of heaven, a Queen someday I'll be."

I thought the note was beautiful said. What did you think?

Some Ideas of What to Pray About

This post is very similar to the previous post. I hope this post will give you a few new ideas or some ideas what to pray about and I do strongly encourage you to think about and answer the following list of some questions that I thought about recently.

"What did you pray about today?" "What are you going to pray about this evening?"
"Did you pray about your future plans?" "Did you pray about your current plans?"

"Did you pray about how to become a better person today than you were yesterday?"
"Did you pray about how to overcome your current struggles and current trials?"

"Did you pray about how to overcome your current challenges?" 
"Did you pray about how to overcome your current difficulities?"

"Did you pray about how to overcome your current hardships?"
"Did you pray about how to overcome your current habits?"

"Did you pray about your choices if it is the right choices that you have made?"
"Did you pray about getting a house?" "Did you pray about getting a job?"

"Did you pray about your short term goals?" "Did you pray about your long term goals?"
"Did you pray about your immediate family members?" "Did you pray about your friends?"

"Did you pray about your current relationship if you are currently in a relationship?"
"Did you pray about your current engagement if you are currently engaged to someone?"

"Did you pray about your current marriage if you are currently married with your spouse?"
"Did you pray about your current concerns that you have at this present time?"
"Did you pray about your current feelings that you have at this present time?"

"Did you pray about everything?" "If you answered no, did you about many things?"
I love the Image that I have shared above for this post. If you can not see the Image above, it says "The only way to worry about nothing is to pray about everything." I 100% agree with what the Image says and I may not pray about everything but I do know when I pray about many things, I can relate to the Image.

I always strive my best to pray about my future plans, my currently plans, my short term goals, long term goals, getting a job, my immediate family members, my choices if the choices that I am making is right and my friends.
I also always strive my best to pray about my current concerns and feelings at this present time.

Did it go well? Did any of the questions made you think more than one minute before answering?

How well did you think you went with answering some of the questiions from the list?
How well did you think you went with answering all of the questions from the list?
Before sharing with you some of the things what I pray for, I have shared a Image above relating to this post's topic. If you can not see the Image, it says "Pray, Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4."

I would like to share with you some of the things what I pray for.

In my prayers, I always pray for the spirit to be with me as I read the scriptures, I always pray for comfort, I always pray for forgiveness, I always pray for safety and protection while I am driving/travelling, I always pray for my family, I always pray for my friends wherever they are in the world now and I always pray for a few other basic things such as pray for direction.

In my prayers, I always strive my best to ask questions, pray for missionary opportunities, pray for my health and someone's health and many more.
