Choose Faith

This quote by Bishop Richard C. Edgley, First Counselor in the Presiding Bishopric, has quickly become one of my very favorites from last General Conference:

Choose faith over doubt, choose faith over fear, choose faith over the unknown and the unseen, and choose faith over pessimism. Ensign, November 2010, 31.

In regards to my last post, these words have bolstered not only my faith, but also my confidence. I don’t know what the future will hold with this new endeavor, but I know that the Lord is asking me to go down this path and as such He will prepare a way for me to do it.

In the past couple Relief Society meetings I’ve attended, I have been reminded to be conscious of my internal dialogue. When I find myself thinking negatively or feeling like something is too hard for me, I need to stop and choose faith instead. I’d like to start choosing faith instead of pessimism which so often invades my thoughts without me even realizing it. I don’t think I am the only one that does this and if you do too, please stop and choose faith with me.
