I went to a workshop about prayer and reciving revlation yesterday and they had us read our scriptures and come up with a question we wanted answered! as we did this we were supposed to pray to find the answer to the question and then ponder and read scriptures and seek revelation! as i pondered my question the spirit told me to do one question but i wasn't sure if i should do that one so i came up with another one just incase. as i started praying and reading my scriptures my first question was pounding in my heart and all the scriptures i read talked about that! I was amazed at the things i learned and as i was walking back to class the spirit hit me so strongly about the revelation i had recieved i started crying! i felt like a cry baby but the spirit was so strong i was amazed! i couldn't believe it! Stay close to the spirit! Pray alot! Be strong and of good cheer! I love you guys so much! Can't wait to talk to you guys next week!
