How blessed am I

This sunday, I decided to look at how blessed I truly am. 

How blessed am I to have been born a member of such an incredible church. How blessed am I to have the opportunity to know the truth. How blessed am I to know that I have a Heavenly Father and a Savior who love me completely. To know that the Savior suffered for me personally. And to know that because of his suffering, there is nothing I can do that I can't be healed from. How blessed am I to know that the atonement can not only bring complete healing, but it can bring complete comfort and peace. And to know that if I keep the commandments and live the gospel, that I can one day return to the arms of my loving Heavenly Father and Savior again. I am so thankful that I was born into a family that taught me the importance of the gospel. I am so lucky that I know what it feels like to be truly happy because of this amazing church. True happiness comes from the gospel of Jesus Christ. True happiness comes when we follow the Lord and obey the commandments. True happiness comes when we trust in God and in His plans for us. How blessed am I to have the keys to true and everlasting happiness. And how blessed am I to have the tools to share this happiness and to share this amazing gospel with the world. How blessed am I to have the knowledge that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I am so thankful for the counsel and comfort I get from the wonderful pages of this book. The Book of Mormon is so wonderful and I feel the spirit every time I read it. How blessed am I to know that my prayers are heard and answered. The fact that I can pray and feel my Saviors love is such an amazing blessing. How blessed am I to be surrounded by so many beautiful and perfect temples. The temple is such a holy and perfect place and I feel nothing but pure joy and love every second I spend in one of Gods holy houses. How blessed am I to know that we have living prophets on the earth today that receive revelation for us from God. How blessed am I to have family and friends that love me and share standards with me. How blessed I am to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I could not be more blessed. I love my Father in Heaven. I love my Savior. I love this church and I know it's true. 

My heart is full because I am truly blessed.
