Im trying to hard to keep myself sane these
days. theres so much im going through.
I want to be married so bad to the right now
and have a family. but could it be possible that
those blessings arent mine yet because im still
recovering and waiting on my new bishop to get
intouch with me? how do gain trust in the Lord and how
do u finally get that its all the Lords timing?


Being Single....    
"I often had the thoughts where I was mad at myself for doing things that have prevented me from being ready to marry. Often I was angry, thinking that if I just had a righteous boyfriend that I wouldn't struggle anymore. Often I thought how ironic it was that I was preventing myself from marriage when I thought marriage would be the cure...

These feelings of anger and depression did not help me. And they are completely normal and natural feelings but we aren't here to be natural. We are here to be supernatural. To cast off the natural man.

The other night I was laying in bed and thinking about how messed up my life is. And this thought came to my head and brought me peace. "Thank you God, for giving me this opportunity to prepare for a relationship." I realized that being single is a blessing right now. Marriage doesn't solve ANY problem. And so I have made more of an effort to thank God in my prayers for giving me this time in my life to be single and prepare myself."

eternal perspective    
"Dear friends,

I can understand you a bit, although I'm not a woman, I'm single as well and I'm still hoping to be married one day.
Right now it's not possible for me, but if our savior by the power of god die for us and was resurrected 3 days after, such a wonderful miracle, how he can help me to be married in the temple one day.

It is a matter of time and willingness to trust him everyday, but it require effort

May the lord help you in your recovery

Your friend from europe"

sit at his door...    
"The life of a Bishop is often "the sqeeky wheel" getting the oil....go sit by his office or call hid exec sec until he can see you. Don't give up on him."

"Now, my brothers and sisters, let not Jesus’ redemption for us stop at the immortalizing dimension of the Atonement, “the loosing of the bands of death”. Let us grasp the proffered gift of eternal life! We will end up either choosing Christ’s manner of living or His manner of suffering! It is either “suffer even as I”, or overcome “even as [He] … overcame”. His beckoning command is to become “even as I am”. The spiritually settled accept that invitation, and “through the atonement of Christ,” they become and overcome! "

— Neal A. Maxwell
