Life Decisions

I haven't blogged in forever, and maybe after reading this post you will realize why i haven't for awhile. Life has been all over the place. But this much I know. That throughout my whole life I have always been guided by the spirit in my decisions. I knew when I was supposed to move to Idaho Falls, I knew that I was supposed to live with my sister, even though at the time, things weren't working out for her to be able to do it. But did it all eventually work out? Of course it did, because the Lord wanted it. I know that the things that the Lord wants to have happen, will happen, even if we don't see how they ever could. It is one thing I have prided myself in throughout my life; recognizing the spirit and how it speaks to me. It never leaves a question in my head, even when there are a zillion options. To me, there only ever seems to be one, and it is the one I take.

Recently my sister has been feeling like she needs to move to Utah. Before she even brought it up I knew that something felt off and that things weren't supposed to continue as they were. She presented me with the option of considering going with her. I thought it out, and prayed about it. For that following week, my emotions were very near the surface, and all I could feel was this overwhelming love for Idaho Falls and my friends here. No mistake, this was the voice of the spirit whom I have become so familiar with throughout my life. I recognized it as that, and prayed no more on the subject. I am staying. I will miss my sister, but I feel like this is what is best for both of us, and if Utah is where the Lord wants her I won't ever try to stand in her way. I told my sister that I didn't know where I was going to live or what would happen, but if its meant to be, it would all work out in the end. I have that faith, and now I face the unknown of housing and roommate situations, but I KNOW it will all work out, cause it always has in the past. :)

I'm glad you both are following the inspirations that you are receiving. It will work out for you, even if you have to go through some challenges too. :)
