Come Listen to a Prophets Voice

And hear the word of God.

For those of you who aren't aware. I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This weekend is our church's semi annual conference. As church members we gather together to listen to our leaders.

Thomas S. Monson is the president of our church and he is the Prophet of the Lord in this day and age.

The heavens are not closed. God speaks to us today. You don't have to take my word for it. If you would like to watch or listen in and hear what they have to say you can go here.

I've been looking forward to this conference for weeks now. I've had some struggles and I've felt a little lost. As this weekend has drawn near. In my heart and mind I've had some conversations with God, asking Him to send me guidance through the messages that I would hear.

Today as I watched the first two sessions I listened for those messages. They were there. Messages for me. And while it wasn't necessarily what I wanted to hear it is what I needed to hear.

God knows me. He knows my struggles. He also knows what is best for me. I know that. I've seen His hand in my life too many times to deny it.

I await tomorrow anxiously. To hear what other messages are there for me as I'm sure there will be messages for all who want to listen.

It is truly interesting how when listening to those talks --we usually find something that feels it was directed right at YOU. (You talking to me??) yup, so I better listen

I agree that we can always find the answers to what we have been searching for.

I always hear one talk that I KNOW was written just for me. How does God do that?

LOVED Conference. I really need to read it in the Ensign though - the kids make it hard!
