We went to the Empty Nesters Family Home Evening. It was nice to get together with everyone.
“I ought not to harrow up in my desires, the firm decree of a just God, for I know that he granteth unto men according to their desire, whether it be unto death or unto life; yea, I know that he allotteth unto men, yea, decreeth unto them decrees which are unalterable, according to their wills, whether they be unto salvation or unto destruction.
Yea, and I know that good and evil have come before all men; he that knoweth not good from evil is blameless; but he that knoweth good and evil, to him it is given according to his desires, whether he desireth good or evil, life or death, joy or remorse of conscience.
Now, seeing that I know these things, why should I desire more than to perform the work to which I have been called?” (Alma 29:4-6)
I often have to remind myself to be happy and grateful for that which I have. I should not envy. I have been given much. I need to learn how to work with that which I have been given, and I need to trust in the Lord that He will give me what I need and deserve.
This is what I previously wrote after reading Alma 29: God Grants Us Our Desires
