Anyway, my unhealthly eating habits aside, I want to talk about what Hermana Morales said. She was saying that there are levels of faith: hope, initial faith (faith, but there is also room for doubt), advanced faith (when people say I know), and Certainty (when you believe and act and there is no room for doubt). She said that we need to pray with such faith that we are certain that what we are asking to come to pass is in reality already happening. She said that we need to be able to visualize this thing happening as we are praying. This was interesting when we think about this in context of my zone meeting. If we plan specifically, then we can visualize this plan happening and have greater faith, but if we don't plan specifically, then we will have a harder time. This applies not just to being a missionary, but in all decision making that we do. Heavenly Father wants us to use our brains and make a plan, then pray about the plan asking if this plan is according to His will for us. He will then answer us in His way and His timing to let us know. If our plan is not according to His will, He will let us know. If our plan is according to His will, then He will bless us as we go about fulfilling our plan. Sorry that this isn't as spiritual as the other weeks, but it's something that made me think a lot this week. It made me evaluate my work as a missionary and made me see how I can improve, so I wanted to share this with all of y'all.
I love y'all!
