It is such a strange feeling to see the end of my life approaching. My mind and thoughts of my future doesn’t contain things of an earthly nature but my sights are of continuing and strengthening my relationship with my Savior.
I was reading a book by Wendy Nelson, the prophets wife. It was called “The Heavens Are Open”, it was an extraordinary book. She talked about when we turn our lives and hearts completely over to the Savior to lead us; our prayers and thoughts become thy will be done.
I sat and thought about this and it really hit home. Now when I pray and give gratitude for my blessings. I still pray for people on their behalf but as for me and my wants and desires are now just, THY WILL BE DONE. So simple and yet so profound. I don’t worry and fret because as I live each day and everything I do from here on out is only for my Savior.
When I try to start something or make a decision, a still small voice asks me, “Is this going to bring you closer to your Heavenly Father?” I then can turn away from that choice and refocus my life. I feel much happier and am more at peace this way.
I don’t know if this will work for everyone and it has taken me over 60 years to get here. And all I can say is that it works for me here and now.
