A Son Committed to His Father

"I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me."
John 8:28

"The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do...For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth."
John 15: 19-20

"Commit your works to the Lord and your thoughts will be established."
Proverbs 16:3

Prayer moves God, and when God moves in your life, things get exciting!
-Joni Eareckson Tada

I often question my real commitment to our Heavenly Father, and strive to be the kind of daughter He would be proud of.  I desire and pray  to ever be mindful of:

the spirit of love
the needs of others
to be as a pitcher of water pure and clean
pouring goodness into the lives of others
being a vessel of the spirit
remembering I am a temple
 leading others to Him
being a teachable daughter
guiding others toward His unconditional love for them
learning from Him unconditional love
remembering I have far to go
and that He is patient.  ; )

What commitments have you made to your Father?

I think the world is glorious

I think the world is glorious and lovely as can be.
The birds and bees and blossoms bring sweet messages to me.

I sing, and sing, and sing, and sing
A song of joy and love.
I sing, and sing, and sing, and sing
My thanks to God above.

~Anna Johnson

Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

What songs of gratitude do you sing this day?

Praise Him...

"Dear mother earth, who day by day
Unfoldest blessings on our way,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
The flowers and fruits that in thee grow,
Let them His glory also show."

St. Francis of Assisi

The Family of Adam

2 Ne. 9: 21
And he cometh into the world 
that he may save all men if they will hearken unto his voice; 
for behold, 
he suffereth the pains of all men, 
the pains of every living creature, 
both men, 
 and children, 
who belong to the family of Adam.

Christ is the Light to All Mankind

Christ Is the Light to All Mankind
Gordon B. Hinckley

"We are far short of the goal he set for us, but we must never lose sight of it; nor must we forget that our great climb toward the light, toward perfection, would not be possible except for his teachings, his life, his death, and his resurrection. I testify that Christ is the light to all mankind."

an eye single to His glory

And if your eye be single to my glory, 
your whole bodies shall be filled with light,
and there shall be no darkness in you; 
and that body which is filled with light 
comprehendeth all things.

D&C 88:67
