Doubt not, Fear not

This morning I read D&C 6:36, "Look unto me in every thought, doubt not, fear not."  At first I thought that I do that, then it occurred to me that I look to my Heavenly Father in practically every thought, but I doubt and fear, a lot.  I doubt where I am at in my life right now, I doubt what I am doing, I fear that I make bad decisions, I fear that I am not doing enough.  I doubt and fear that I am not doing what He would want me to do.  But then I thought about how much I do trust my Father in Heaven, how I have completely put my life in His hands before and all turned out well.  If I truly trust Him, don't I trust that if I weren't doing what He wanted me to do, He would tell me?  If He wanted me to do something different wouldn't He guide me to that?  In that one little scripture today I realized that I must be where I am supposed to be, doing what I am supposed to be doing or He would lead me to somewhere else, to something else.  Maybe I truly can doubt not, fear not, because I truly believe He loves me and guides me in all I do!

You are Receiving Revelaton Every Day

I'm a little behind in my Ensign reading, I'm currently reading the July 2013 issue.  I was reading an article today and came across this quote by President Eyring to a group of Stake Presidents:

Brethern, you are receiving revelation every day.  You are receiving it right at this moment.  What are your major concerns, and what is the Lord telling you about what to do about them?

I had to stop right where I was and write this quote down.  It is not just stake presidents that this applies to, I know that it applies to me as well.  It was the perfect reminder that I needed in that very moment, that I am receiving revelation every day regarding my major concerns.  The question is am I taking the time to pay attention to what the Lord is telling me what to do about those concerns?

So I took a quiet moment to pray and listen to what is being told to me.  I find that me and several others around me right now are in a great change of life and those concerns are weighing heavy on us.  Taking that moment to listen gave me a small glimpse into the direction that I need to go.  I just hope that each day I can do the same as I know without a doubt that He will guide me if I just listen.
