Something I've Learned

STRESS. That is the word that has dominated my thoughts over the past couple days. I think I've literally spent a total of 24 hours doing english in the last week. We're doing this huge research paper that is really hard and time consuming and all the due dates are 1 day apart so I've been doing that and let me tell you...its turned me into a stressful wreck! For example, 7 hours of english homework tuesday night...track meet the next day...yea. But you know what I learned from all this. Well, it kinda goes right along with what we've been learning in seminary. Quick! Look up D&C 121:7-9! I'll make it easier and just put it on here. 7. My son {or daughter}, peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment; 8. And then, if thou endure it well, God shall exalt thee on high; thou shalt triumph over all thy foes. 9. Thy friends do stand by thee, and they shall hail thee again with warm hearts and friendly hands. I've really felt this in my life. As I've relied on the Lord through these crazy times I've felt peace. He's helped me so much. And it also helps when I have some great friends backing me up too :) "All these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good." ( D&C 122:7) Heavenly Father gives us trials for the benefit us. Trials are tests of our faith to Him. I feel like I have more faith in Him and Jesus Christ. I love the gospel. Always something new to learn. CONFERENCE IS THIS WEEKEND!!! WOOT!!! It's time for me to go catch up on my sleep. ♥ Hannah Lee

Hannah! Love this post. You're doing so great in school this year and you've got a great perspective on it all. D&C 121 is the best! Seminary is the best!
