When the time for decision arrives, the time for preparation is past.
This week was amazing! I got to learn so much about faith and about how we rely so much on it and on Gods will to keep us on His path. In Moses 6 it says: 33 Say unto this people: Choose ye this day, to serve the Lord God who made you. This made me think of how sometimes we choose to serve the Lord when the time to act approaches but like the president says “When the time for decision arrives, the time for preparation is past."....... Let us not wait to visit that family in need, or to help someone. Let this day be the day that you serve God with all your love and strength and the reward will be seen not through your mortal eyes but through a sincere heart willing to see beyond.
35 And the Lord spake unto Enoch, and said unto him: Anoint thine eyes with clay, and wash them, and thou shalt see. And he did so.
36 And he beheld the spirits that God had created; and he beheld also things which were not visible to the natural eye.
Like Enoch we all have the privilege of anointing ourselves, maybe not with clay, but with continual prayer and service to all those around us. I can testify that through service, our own understanding of the eternal joy that God promises is opened unto us.
