My Life to Give

Patience is something you are never done proving you have.

Well, life has been moving very slowly for me recently. And it is really hard at times. But I have many blessings in my life that I am grateful for. I have a wonderful family, fantastic friends, a good LDS ward to attend and a lovely calling (which means a responsibility to serve others at Church in a specified way).

I have a roof over my head, food to eat, and my knee gets stronger each day. I have a knowledge that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live and love me. Even though I am not where I would like to be in life, remembering my blessings keeps me going. They help me to feel of worth.

Despite my setbacks, I have been trying hard to make something with my life. Even though I don't know what's ahead for me, I try every day to keep going. But taking that step forward often takes courage. 

Through all this, I have been brought to a low I did not foresee. And the choice is mine to sink or swim.  Of course I want to swim, but the only way I can at this point is to rely on my God—to choose to be completely dependent on my Heavenly Father to guide me.

I've realized that I can't make anything with my life without my Heavenly Father. Everything I have accomplished already has been because of Him. And everything I desire to accomplish, will be done best through Him. My life is mine to live, but at times I feel that it is not my life to live, but my life to give. If I desire to make something out of this life, then I have to fully submit to the Lord and His will. I have to dedicate my life to following Him and serving Him. I have to prove my faith.

So, I continue to move forward.
