Still

Peace.

Finally.

I stopped.  I breathed. I listened.

And suddenly, it was all so clear.  I almost missed it in all of my constant rush to figure it out.

But remarkably, the answers seem to have been slowly building all along.  Line upon line.

Why is the control always so hard for me to let go of?

Yet, it’s only when I do that I finally find peace.

It’s only then that I finally see.  I see that all along, the answers were there, all around me, quietly leading me on, even if I didn’t know it.  The answers are found in everything.

I feel so full of gratitude today.  My heart is light.  Yes, there are still trials to face and worries to sort out.  But somehow today, I am reminded that God is everywhere.  Everywhere there is evidence of the Divine.

I am so grateful that Easter is coming.  I love the Savior.  Not in some cheesy-I-was-taught-to-say-this kind of way.  I love Him.  I love Him because I know Him.  He has helped me to go on when I never thought I could and to become who I never thought I’d be able to be.  I know He is there, and that He truly is the Son of God.  I’m so grateful for the price of knowing Him.

Today, in spite of the things I still cannot see, I do see this:  My life is blessed, my life is guided, and step by step, I’ll be led to where I should be.

“You show your trust in Him when you listen with the intent to learn and repent and then you go and do whatever He asks. If you trust God enough to listen for His message in every sermon, song, and prayer, … you will find it.” –  Pres. Henry B. Eyring
