#5: The Scriptures

Have you ever had a perfect moment of clarity? A moment where something touched you so strongly you couldn't contain it within yourself? A time when with your mortal understanding, you gained a glimpse of something divine?

Remember that feeling. How often does it accompany reading the words of God? How often do you treasure doctrine, feast and come away filled?

My favorite scripture changes depending on my mood. Here are my two favorite today:

Doctrine and Covenants 84:88
And whoso receiveth you, there I will be also, for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up.

Psalms 46:10
Be still, and know that I am God

What are your favorite moments with scripture?

  1. Lately, my favs are about the temple from Hubders class.

    This post is a great reminder for feast more fully.

    (and nice prose, too)

  2. Your last favorite has been one of mine for many years, although different referances. Whenever I'm feeling overwhelmed and wondering how to deal with it all, "Be still, and know that I am God" comes to mind and I step back and take a deep breath and see the wisdom in that scripture. Thanks for the reminder.
