"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.
