Hey! :) How are you all? I bet you all had a fantastic week!
We have an amazing investigator named Juan :) He really is interested! We had a really good lesson with him on Saturday :) We are going to teach him all he can before he goes back to Mexico for a couple months.
"When obedience ceases to be an irritant and becomes our quest, in that moment God will endow us with power"
I found this quote astonishing because it is so true! I know we become more and more converted to the Gospel when we are being obedient. The commandments turn into blessings and not burdens upon our backs. That is when we truly show our love to Heavenly Father. When we serve faithfully and cheerfully, letting Him guide us and holding nothing back. Last night we were able to attend a musical production and one of the songs said something I am rather fond of. It said
"He will ask what is the hardest thing to give, He will ask for you to lay it down for Him. Lay it down, lay it down for Him and you will find your life again"
Those lyrics really hit me and inspire me to want to lay down my wants and my cares and my desires to Him. This is really really hard. But I know, that we will find our true selves when we don't hold anything back from serving with our whole hearts for Him, our Beloved Savior Jesus Christ. And I leave these thoughts with you, until next week, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen :)
Love, Hermana Derges
