The Church of Jesus Christ is rooted in the truth of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s vision for mankind as communicated through scripture. It represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a gateway through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.
Right now, my life is in this constant stage of waiting. I’m waiting for May 6 because I’ll finally be done with college (for now!). I’m waiting for the first week of July because I’ll be back at GMBA camp with all my out-of-state friends and family. I’m waiting to move out, to buy a new car, and to find the person I get to spend the rest of my life with. I’m waiting.
The difficult thing about waiting is that I live in a society where everything is instant. If I hear a song on the radio and like it, I buy it on my smartphone and play it in a matter of minutes. If I don’t know the answer to a question, I ask Siri or Google it and get the answer immediately. If I find something I like, I can buy it with one click on Amazon, and two days later it comes in the mail. Patience is hard to practice when I live in a world of instant gratification.
Today's Miracle Monday was submitted by Sister Cindy Henderson, and it highlights the power of prayer and God's healing touch.
Have you ever been immediately delivered from a physical affliction? Today, I share a blessing times three. Back in 2000, I was in the chemotherapy phase of treatment for breast cancer. A few months into the treatments, I found myself getting weaker, lacking energy, and extremely fatigued. My husband had carefully altered his work schedule so that I was not left alone for any long periods.
