When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Sabbath Day Scribblings - Not Perfect

God is fully aware
That you and I are 
Not Perfect.
Let me add,
God is also fully aware
That the people you think
Are perfect,
Are not.

And yet, we spend so much time and energy
comparing ourselves to others - usually comparing
our weaknesses to their strengths
...As a result, we never celebrate our good efforts
Because they seem to be less
Than what someone else does.
Deiter F. Uchtdorf

I hope today, that we each celebrate our own strengths.  Our own efforts.  Our own successes.  They are there within.  Our Heavenly Father did not send us to this earth without strengths.  He did not send us here to compete against everyone else.  The only person that we should ever compare ourselves to is the person that we were yesterday.  Honor your trials and your journey, and especially honor the overcoming of your difficulties.    
Ether 12:27 And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them.

  1. Just some very lovely thoughts today and we do need to look deeper at our own strengths. I needed this one today.
