Waiting on the Lord - Jeffrey R. Holland https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DVpRFRFKME We get so tired with our desire to wear diapers.  Something that has been placed on our shoulders that we didn’t ask for.

Seeing and perceiving, hearing and understanding

During a talk I recently listened to the following scripture was paraphrased from Isaiah 6:9: “And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.” It is estimated that we make ~35,000 choices each and every day.  Some choices are proactive, and the majority … Continue reading Seeing and perceiving, hearing and understanding
