So this week has been a roller coaster for me. So many emotions. I have made some pretty big decisions this week that will affect me and my eternal progression in a big way.
I went to class with a lot of questions but was comforted by a scripture in 1 Nephi 17:1-3. It explains how Nephi was instructed to build a ship. We are all building ships at some point and this week I had a pretty big one that was troubling me. Sometimes we don’t get all the instructions at first. But from time to time, we receive bits and pieces, little visions on what we’re supposed to do next and how we’re to do it. Sometimes we receive instructions and wait for more, maybe because we’re not willing to do what was asked of us.
What I love about the way Nephi went about building a ship was the trust and confidence he had in the Lord that as he went to Him, he received little by little. His faith was so much that as he prayed often, the Lord showed unto him great things. This is something that I have been trying to do recently as I was thrown into a crazy week where suddenly everything I knew and thought was turned upside down. But as I have been taking it one step at a time, I could see my vision getting clearer and I have been able to see a little bit more and more what I am supposed to do right now with this ship.
