I’ve been thinking about the question, “why I choose to believe” for a few days.
One gift I was blessed with was the gift of belief and trust. Life is hard for everyone - but one of my favorite scriptures is Proverbs 3:5 - “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Growing up, I never struggled to know if the Gospel was true - I just knew. And I wonder sometimes why I don’t have a “questioning” mind ... I choose to believe. As I have watched friends and family leave the church, it reinforces to me that I need the extra help of the church and my Heavenly Father in raising my family and life in general! In a world with not a lot of peace - I am grateful for the peace the Gospel brings in my life.
