Invitations from a prophet: Renee Woolf

How do I go about accessing the power of Jesus Christ? 

The first two thoughts that came to mind as I thought about this question were accessing Christ’s power through prayer and scripture study. I have also discovered that faith, trust, humility and a grateful heart is required to access His power and blessings. 

A few of my ward sisters already know, the dynamics of my life have changed quite drastically over the last three years due to unexpected health challenges. During this time I have received an abundance of priesthood blessings and I testify that I have spiritually and physically felt Christ’s power to heal my discomfort and emotional discouragement. I love how Christ is always there for me and loves me. I know He knows what my circumstances and wants to and will help me reach my potential. I testify that I know accessing Christ’s power is available to us constantly if we will only come to Him with a sincere and grateful heart. 

How do I find spiritual momentum? 

I have several ways that I find spiritual momentum, including all the tools my Heavenly Father has given me to guide me through a chaotic world. I find it especially helpful to receive spiritual momentum when I listen to the words of our modern day Prophet (Russell M Nelson)and the twelve Apostles that are leading our church today. Reading or listening to their wise counsel and inspirational words always gives me a spiritual boost and an exceptional source for spiritual momentum. l also feel spiritual momentum when I listen to inspirational music and scriptural podcasts that have enhanced my understanding of the scriptures

How do I spend my time?

When I was younger, I wasn’t happy unless I was busy doing anything and everything. However, I often felt like I was just spinning my wheels and not actually accomplishing anything. Today, I realize that my Heavenly Father does not expect me to be perfect, at least not in this life. However, I’m striving to do my best to focus on the things that matter most such as family, my ancestry and personal history, going to the temple, and by reaching out to my family and friends to celebrate our relationships and those special occasions that fill my heart with memories and joy. 

I will end by sharing a quick testimony of my faith in my Heavenly Father’s Plan of Salvation I’m grateful that Jesus Christ implemented our Fathers plan through His Sacrifice and Atonement.  I am grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and for those who suffered and died in bringing forth the restoration of the gospel and the Book of Mormon. I’m grateful for the guidance of a modern day Prophet (Russell M. Nelson).  I  love his cute and comforting smile. Lastly, I know deep down in my heart that I’m continually being watched over throughout my story. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.
