This week was wonderful! We had an activity with all the teens in the ward. Lots of them came to do divisions. These youth are fantastic. The majority of them are the only members in their homes; however their testimonies are so sincere. They have a deep excitement to share the Gospel with their friends and family. In lessons they teach doctrines and share personal experiences. They aren´t waiting to be called on a mission to serve the Lord, they are spreading the gospel to everyone now. What inspiring youth! As I was filled with their enthusiasm I couldn’t help but think of the scripture that says "Let no man despise thy youth, but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in spirit, in faith, in purity." (1Timothy 4;12)Those teens and many others follow this creed. They are examples, lights to their friends and family, little pillars of happiness that hold up so many other people who otherwise would be blinded by the injustices of the world. They have found happiness because they TRUST in the Lord and keep his commandments. I love the words of Alma to his son in the Book of Mormon when he says "O, remember, my son, and learn wisdom in thy youth, yea, learn in thy youth to keep the commandments of God." (Alma37;35) I know that if we keep the Commandments of God we will have lasting happiness throughout life. Nothing compares with the satisfaction that we feel when we obey God´s command.
Trust in the Lord! He loves you!
