humbled

Lately I have been acting a little selfish. And I am being schooled.

I've been losing, out of carelessness, small items of value; my camera battery, my driver's license, amounts of cash, my temple recommend. I have been letting myself become so discouraged over such minuscule losses that I have barely been able to think, resulting in a loss of faith and hope. I realize that I have been so very petty, and I am feeling quite humble this morning; especially humbled and at the same time uplifted through the following video showcasing great strength through loss.


"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."(Ether 12:27)

Although I am far from perfect, I know that I can be made better than I am. Each day brings a new opportunity for growth! Anything is possible!

Did you ever find it interesting that in this scripture, he says "weakness" instead of "weaknesses"?

I have never really thought of that, Krista. What a neat thing to point out. I get the feeling that it's sort-of referring to the human condition in general. Say, the natural man. I have far more than one weakness, that's for sure. Very interesting. I will ponder.
