This weekend we received our conference edition of the Ensign in the mail. I always love opening the pages and looking through the beautiful pictures, seeing if there is anyone I know. I love revisiting what was said at conference. I love having a highlighter in my hand and marking the passages that I love.
Today I revisited Elder Cornish’s talk “Am I Good Enough? Will I Make It?” I loved this talk when it was given at conference because I often have those questions run through my mind. His talk is filled with hope and inspiration to continue down the path of discipleship.
He begins by saying “Isn’t it wonderful how many ways our loving Heavenly Father guides and blesses us? He really wants us to come home.” What a perfect reminder that we are not alone in the journey, trying to make it back to our Heavenly Father’s presence. He is with us on our journey and he can help us perfectly if we ask for His help. On the same note, he continues later in the address by saying “Our Heavenly Father intends for us to make it! That is His work and His glory.”
I think about my daughter and my relationship with her. When I really want her to accomplish something and learn something new, I am willing to help her in any way I can so she can gain the skills she needs to grow. Heavenly Father can help us more perfectly than I can help my daughter, and he wants to help us make it back to Him, what an amazing blessing.
Finally he concludes that “We can have hope in Christ because He want to help and change us. In fact, He is already helping you. Just pause and reflect and recognize His help in your life.” He is always there, the real question is are we able to recognize him.
