I have been tossed about quite a bit in my life but I have always known where I am supposed to be and when I am to be there. The Lord had inspired me to act and do things that would provide the BEST learning experiences and the BEST blessings. I just needed to have the faith to do it. Recently he allowed me to choose whether to move to Utah. I was given a blessing that stated that I would be blessed for whatever decision I made. Yes, the Lord wouldn't stop blessing me if I didn't move, but by doing what I felt inspired to do, I am now in a position to receive the blessings that are BEST for me. The other faith defining feats were smaller in comparison to the one I just made but had prepared my faith so that I would have enough to do it.
One of my friends who I would say is a faithful member of the church was confronted with a situation. She decided to choose the opposite of what she felt inspired to do. I often think about what amazing blessings she is missing out on based on that decision. Yes, she still has a good life, but does she have the BEST one that she could possibly have? I know that when we do what we are inspired to do, that the blessings will be poured out on us. And who wouldn't choose that? I would, and I have!
