I am very excited to give the thought in front of my school for devotional tomorrow!
With the excitement though comes some CRAZY nerves...
I hope no one reads this before tomorrow morning when I give the thought...
If you do... then SHHHH... Don't give it away!
I can do ANYTHING goodby: ME
What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
· Would you have the courage to take challenging classes and do what it takes to be an “A” student?· Would you work toward accomplishing your goals?· Girls, would you go sit by that kid from your English class who is sitting alone in the café?· Boys, would you ask that sweet girl out that you have been making awkward eye contact with in class for the past month?
Brothers and Sisters, I testify the power and success that comes from positive thinking. I also testify of the even greater power that comes from trusting in our Savior, Jesus Christ.
In the April 2003 priesthood session, President Monson said:
“Life’s journey is not traveled on a freeway devoid of obstacles, pitfalls, and snares. Rather, it is a pathway marked by forks and turnings. Decisions are constantly before us. To make them wisely, courage is needed: the courage to say, “No,” the courage to say, “Yes.” Decisions do determine destiny.”
He then went on to say:
“…Though the task seems large, we are strengthened by the truth: “The greatest force in this world today is the power of God as it works through man.” If we are on the Lord’s errand, we are entitled to the Lord’s help. That divine help, however, is predicated upon our worthiness. To sail safely the seas of mortality, to perform a human rescue mission, we need the guidance of that eternal mariner—even the great Jehovah. We look up, we reach out to obtain heavenly help.”
With the Lords constant guidance in our lives we will not fail. As we live our lives righteously with a positive attitude, spirituality, faith, determination, and courage we WILL not fail in life. We... can... and will do... ANYTHING good.
Of this I testify, In the name of Jesus, Christ
BOOM, there you go. Three Minutes in front of a good number of students.
I really hope I don't wet my pants...
-Oh but I will be wearing a skirt-
