Shall we not go on in so great a cause?
Today for FHE we went to the Joseph Smith movie in Idaho Falls. I absolutely love this movie because I learn something new everytime and I have better motivation to share the gospel. I love the prophet Joseph Smith and his courage and pure patience to go through all that he had to. In the movie Emma says after a difficult experience, do you ever wonder if the Lord asks too much? Joseph answers and says, I don't let myself. That is so powerful to imagine and apply in our own lives. We need to control our thoughts and try not to ask the Lord, why me? But instead take advantage of the things that can be learned from this experience. My favorite part is the end, after Joseph finally passes away and is able to escape from all his trials, he looks to heaven and says "My Lord, my God." Then some text come across the screen explaining that Joseph Smith died for the truth, Should we not go on in so great a cause? That statement always gets me and drives to be better. Joseph did so much to bring this gospel forward and the least I can do is share it and live it. It makes me feel and greater need to step it up. Praise to the Man!
