Week 12.5 Finding Happiness at the Temple 9/26/2016

3 months!!!! that is crazy... like really crazy
in this world we are all seeking for happiness, but how do we get it that is the real question.
1. Foundation
first and foremost we must have that foundation in Christ
How firm a foundation, ye Saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in his excellent word!
What more can he say than to you he hath said,
Who unto the Savior, who unto the Savior,
Who unto the Savior for refuge have fled?
In ev'ry condition--in sickness, in health,
In poverty's vale or abounding in wealth,
At home or abroad, on the land or the sea--

As thy days may demand, as thy days may demand,

As thy days may demand, so thy succor shall be...

2. you choose
you choose everything, whether to take the easy path or god's path.
You can choose to break you habit
It will be hard but it will be worth it. whenever you have a bad thought, think that its a bad thought then change it!
3. look toward perfection
if you look to the rules, and what are the limits, you will never be happy because you will never have the peace of mind and be free from guilt. Rules are not what we look to it is the mark to know when we have gone too far. If you always aim for perfection, you may end up short but you will be a lot closer then the person who aims for the rules.
4. ponder
put the phone down!. We all need to know and understand the Gospel. We have to take time to be able to understand what we have read. I know that as we connect all aspects of the gospel together and we make the gospel one single thing instead of lots of strings, our testimony will be strengthened because it is all bonded together.
5. Pray
Talk to you Heavenly Father. He wants to here from you. Thank him for all he does. And ask him about the things you have ponder and that you have thought about. Its like in Ether 12:27 that we can know our weaknesses through him and by praying we draw upon the infinent power of God. and if we do all these things. and if we do not boast (alma 38:11) and like ammon give all the glory to god
6. God will bless us
He will bless you to know what you have to do to become happier and tell you how you can have your happiness in him.

The Gospel is the only thing that can make us truly happy. And if we turn to god and have him do it for us, we will new able to conquer any challenges that do come our way, in his name Amen.
