I feel that this week I was a little too stuck in my head....like when I get on the roller coaster and I freak out cause I think that Im gonna die, or pee my pants, instead of thinking...oh its okay! We got this. Someone is in CONTROL of this machine. ...but I have some stuff in my head...DECISIONS to make. I´ve actually been studying a lot about decision making, why it´s important...and everything. Ive been having problems with a balance. I want him to guide me in EVERYTHING. But he wants me to make some of my OWN decisions too. So Ive been studying that in the liahonas and in the scriptures...and its made a BIG impact on me. Also...I was thinking about the story the wizard of oz. ...about dorthy. and her desire to RETURN HOME. I know thats what we want...what we NEED. ...and guess what? There were LOTS of paths, but there was only ONE WAY for her to do it. AND FIRST she had to have three important things....A MIND, A HEART, AND COURAGE. Those things are what WE need to be able to make decisions. ...we also have to trust in the wizard (in the spirit) to click our heels THREE TIMES (or be willing to do three things) which for me are praying, reading the scriptures, and going to church. As we do those things we will be ABLE TO GET HOME!!! ...its a process but he has given us not only a path, but the way. I need, and want things, and I know if I follow this path...even though its USUALLY A ROLLER COASTER, that he will guide me and I will get what I need.
I love you all!!!
HURRAH FOR ISRAEL!
