General Relief Society Meeting

This past Saturday I had the privilege of attending the General Relief Society Meeting in Salt Lake.  What a blessing it was to go into that beautiful conference center and here the words from our General Relief Society Presidency and beloved Prophet.  I could feel the love of my Heavenly Father pour through them as they spoke to us about covenants, families, and the blessings of Relief Society.
One part that particularly stuck out to me was in President Monsons message about a sister prompted to take some homemade bread to another sister in need.  She tried to ignore the prompting and even rationalize that it would be inconvenient but eventually gave in.  It turned out to be an enormous blessing and act of love that the sister receiving the bread couldn't of been more grateful for.  I thought to myself how many times have I rationalized myself out of a prompting?  Sadly far to often I do not follow through for various reasons and have later felt the sting of a missed opportunity.  That failure to me is a win for Satan and it breaks my heart.  I have promised myself to be more diligent when receiving a spiritual prompting recognizing it may not seem rational to me, but Heavenly Father is very aware of why that prompting is necessary and that I need to act!

I encourage you to watch this wonderful broadcast and feel of the love your savior and Heavenly Father has for you!
