The Lord always says he will never give us more than we can handle. He knows our strengths and our weakness. He says that he will make weak things strong. I have had to ask my Heavenly Father to help me find my strength to carry on. I was prompted to go to one of my old journal's and read it. This is what I found as soon as I opened the journal. What a comfort this has been to me.........my own words.......my own Testimony. Another of His tender mercies shown unto me. That I am strong enough with his help to carry on. He gave me these two hands to accomplish great and marvelous things. I will not let him down just as my Savior has never let me down.
With these two hands, I promise my Father in Heaven, Jesus Christ, Joseph Smith, my Family, and my Son that I will only do good with them. I will help others, and serve others. I will be a friend. I will do things to bring others up. I vow to be a good Mom to my Son Will and to my future children. At the end of each day I will look at my hands and think of all the things they did and how neat it will be to see where they will take me. I will choose the right. And hold fast to the Iron Rod. I will pray daily and read my scriptures daily. I will remember my Father who is in heaven. I know the Savior died on the Cross for me and I know He lives. With these two hands I will do what the Lord needs me to do.
