A very good friend of mine told me that the Lord gives trials for a reason. Maybe it is to teach us something for us to learn now or maybe it is to prepare us for something that we will need for the future. Whatever it may be its not easy, but when we realize what the blessing will be in the end it would have been worth it to go through the trial. The night after my friend gave me this wonderful advice I decided that I was going to just flat out ask the Lord what I needed to learn. I knelt down and said Lord help me understand what I am suppose to learn from this trial. My answer never came. So I continued to pray every night. I don't know if I received the full lesson or not but what I do know is that I learned patience, I learned trust in the Lord, I learned that I can't tell the Lord what I want or what I think I can handle. I am grateful for these things that I learned they have brought me closer to my Heavenly Father and have helped me understand more fully of the love he has for me.
I can't wait for this Saturday it is going to be the best day of my life. I will be sealed to my best friend and nothing else makes me more happy than that.
I love you Brendan Owen.
