Day 260, September 27

"I experience the joy of coming closer to the Savior and of His coming closer to me most often through simple acts of obedience to the commandments."--Henry B. Eyring, First Counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Do you ever think that you have to accomplish some tremendous feat, perform an unbelievably selfless act of service, or maybe give a kidney to a stranger to come closer to the Lord?  I sometimes think that, wonder how I, a sinner, can ever get closer to the Savior.  Then I realize that all I have to do is to follow Him.  To obey Him.

I say "all I have to do," but, in fact, it is a huge thing to follow Him, to obey Him.  If I truly do that, I will let go of my selfish tendencies, my doubts, my hurts.

Joy for today:  obeying the commandments.
