Essential takeaway: Be careful what you ask for
Monday I was meditating and praying about a quote I read from President Nelson. He said “Ask your Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, how He feels about you and your mission here on earth. If you ask with real intent, over time the Spirit will whisper the life-changing truth to you. … I promise you that when you begin to catch even a glimpse of how your Heavenly Father sees you and what He is counting on you to do for Him, your life will never be the same!” Monday morning I did what President Nelson suggested. What life changing revelation would I get?!
I don’t have a book to sell (yet). I don’t have a product at all. I am not doing anything the “influencers” are doing. Let’s be honest, I can barley keep my crap together. I get so overwhelmed when I scroll through Instagram. I see all of the things my “friends” are doing and I just can not compare. Wait, what? I CAN NOT COMPARE…. not because I’m not worthy, but because it doesn’t do me any good. Back to my prayer…. Heavenly Father, what life changing thing do you want me to focus on?
Very clearly and simply I got “Love and teach the three children left in your home. They must be your top priority. Teach your children truth. Focus on those three people. Do not focus on the people you see on Instagram. Do your very best every day for the three spirits that are with you now. They need you. You will need to know you did your best. Focus on them.”
Sometimes the answer is so simple. I wasn’t told to write a book, or create something, start a business, do “what everyone else is doing” or gain more followers. I was told to keep doing what I’M doing. My messy house is ok if truth is being taught. I do not need to stress about posting/or not posting if my kids are learning the truth about the world around them. I’m still perusing some outside goals and I think that is also good. I was seeking clarity about my mission. Clarity brings peace. Peace is needed in this world.
Have you asked, with an open mind, for clarification about your mission?
