Get Me Through The Day

Things that get me through the day.
With a whole lot of craziness going on in my life
there are a few things in life that I NEED to keep me sane. 

1. John Mayer
2. Along Run
3. Chocolate Milk
4. A nap
5. A Beautiful Hike
6. Jack Johnson
7. And the Gospel.

Yup I am getting cheesy and going all out religious talk right now. 
But after conference, I have to lay it down.
To be honest, I don't know what I would do without the LDS Church.
Whenever I am at my wits end, and can't handle anything else
and no one can seem to make you feel better.
I have always turned to prayer and the gospel.
I have NEVER been disappointed by Heavenly father and his love for me.
When people ask how I know the church is true.
My plain answer is the fullness and complete joy that it brings me.
And that joy is still there in the hardest times of life.
This is because that joy, is not from clothes, iphones, how many likes I got
on instagram, or if I have the best car.
This joy, comes from the complete love that I feel from Heavenly Father.
Someone can take away your money, your car, happiness, family.
But no one, will never, ever be able to take away the 
love that Heavenly Father has for you.
And that is the everlasting joy that the church provides. 
The church shows me the way to keep close to my Heavenly father,
the way to get to him one day. 
So many people reject the church because of the few members who
think they have the right to unfairly judge another.
Just because someone at church said something rude to you,
and judged you, and made you feel like you weren't good enough.
They are the one in the wrong. 
And just because that one person, or few people were 
completely rude.
Why throw the church away?
Why throw away the true heart warming, ever lasting
 joy that the gospel can bring
And the love that Heavenly father wants to give to you.
He is there waiting, you just have to accept him and let him in.
You will never know that full joy and love he has for you, 
until you try to draw nearer for him.
Sorry for the long spiel
But I know the gospel is true.
And I know that no matter what happens in my life, I will get through it,
and I will always have a purpose and everlasting joy in my life.

Hope you all are having an amazing week, and for those of you in college,
Good Luck preparing for Finals :)
