A few weeks ago one of my daughter's best friends returned home from her mission and I was so excited to see her, she is so sweet and so beautiful and it was wonderful to hear her talk in church about her experience. One thing that she mentioned was that her mission president gave them all a challenge to read their scriptures every day and every time they came across the word "heart" to highlight it. I really thought this was a great idea and as I have been thinking about it, I wanted to do this same experiment, but I wanted to choose a different word, one that would help me through my current challenges. I have thought about it and prayed about it and have decided to watch for the word "peace."
Since my anxiety started around 2005 or 2006, I haven't felt much peace. A few years later was when I had my first full-blown panic attack, then later I started therapy and so on to now. Also, as I have been working through these latest childhood issues, I had wondered what I wanted at the end of this, what am I looking for? After much thought and prayer, I realized that I was looking for peace. I'll randomly update this blog on my progress of looking for peace, not only in the word in the scriptures, but also in my life.
What word would you look for?
