As I now look back on the day, I realized that there were so many times that the 3 of us could have decided that "it wasn't worth it" or just not go; but we did not choose that. We chose to push through and get to the temple. I look back on today and realize that Satan does NOT want us in the temple and will do whatever it takes to keep us away. We must remember how important the temple is in our lives. I LOVE the temple and LOVE the closeness I feel to my Savior inside. Satan does not want us to feel that closeness so he puts trials in our way to try and discourage us. DO NOT LET HIM. With the power of Christ on our side, we can destroy Satan! Satan and the adversary will always be there, but so will Christ. Lean on Him and He will help you overcome anything.
I promise you that if you do whatever it takes to regularly attend the temple, your life will be so incredibly blessed. You will have a sense of joy and happiness that only comes from within the walls of His holy houses. You will have a new found love for your family and friends around you. And you will especially have a new found love for your Savior. The temple is truly the most amazing place on earth and I wouldn't trade my experiences in the temple for anything. Let the temple be your goal and always strive to reach it. I love the temple. I love my Savior. I love this church and I know it's true.
