Here´s my short little thought for the week! I´ve been thinking about this a lot but I only have 6 minutes to explain so here we go:
"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
"But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also"
When we put our heart and mind into the gospel, not just our actions, we will be truly converted. We can put everything we have into Heaven and trust that Heavenly Father will protect it for us and shape our whole selves into what he needs us to be. Sometimes it is hard at the beginning but in the end it will be the easiest and best decision that we could have made. We won't have to deal with extreme guilt or regret, we won't have to look back on our lives and wish that we would have just given it all up to the Savior like we knew we should, and we will have the peace that comes from knowing that we have truly repented every single week during the sacrament and centered our lives around the Savior. The gospel is truly the best-and easiest way to live our lives.
I love you all so much. Thank you for every letter, email and prayer. They mean so so much to me. Have a fantastic week!
Love, Hermana Nielsen
