Something Wonderful!

Something wonderful is waiting to embrace you
I know when you're tired
and feel like fading
and there's nowhere left to go
When tears are falling down
and your heart is on the floor
Keep on walking my friend
cause something wonderful
is right outside your door

Something wonderful awaits you
to take you where dreams have never gone
And though you're still in this moment
holding on, just holding on
And no one knows what you've been through
or gone a miule in your shoes
Keep on walking my friend
cause something wonderful
is waiting for you

When the walls come down around you
and you want to throw the fight
and the mighty winds surround you
what an unforgiving night
keep looking up to heaven
and you will see the light
Endure the reasons why

Something wonderful is waiting to embrace you
and although your heart is on the floor
keep on walking my friend
cause something wonderful
is right outside your door
Something wonderful is right outside your door!

"What A Friend We Have In Jesus"


As I was reading in a book written by Cheiki N. Okazaki, she talked about this hymn that has helped both her and her husband through the trials and rough seas of life. As as I was reading it, it has started to take meaning for me as well.
" Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
oh, what needless pain we bear.
all because we do not carry
everything to God in prayer!

Have we trials and temptations?
is there trouble anywhere?
we should never be discouraged;
take it to the Lord in prayer

can we find a friend so faithful,
who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows out every weakness;
take it to the Lord in prayer.

are we weary and heavy-laden,
cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge!
take it to the Lord in prayer.

do they friends despise, forsake thee?
take it to the Lord in prayer.
in his arms He'll take and shield thee;
thou wilt find solace there.

Prayer Journal


On Friday I had one of my closest friends in the ward, Jenn Nielson, and she came over to visit me. She brought by this journal, and we visited for a while. After she had left I noticed that she had written in the first page, and she wanted to give me a special gift, its called a "Prayer Journal" and whenever I kneel down to pray, to just imagine that I am sitting next to Heavenly Father and just talk to Him about anything, and then while I am praying have the Journal close by to write down any inspirations that come to me or feeligns that I have through the prayer. That next morning I tried that and it was amazing the feelings that I felt was his powerful love for me. I started crying because the feelings were so overpowering that all I could do was cry, and I realized that He does love me so much, much more than I could ever realize. That he wants me to return to Him. I am going to endeavor to stand a little taller, serve a little better, and love with fullness of heart. I hope and Pray that the Lord will help to accomplish all that is in His and the Fathers will.
