Keep all the commandments and covenants by which ye are bound; and [God] will cause the heavens to shake for your good, and Satan shall tremble and Zion shall rejoice upon the hills and flourish.
Marcus B. Nash, Seminar for new mission leaders, June 23, 2022
We all need to be truly converted to the Lord. Elder Nash gives 3 points in order to do that. 1) Believe, 2) Stay on the covenant path, and 3) Know and trust God.
We live in a world full of temptation, full of unbelieving voices speaking very loud, full of propaganda to do incorrectly and selfishly (you, do you, they say), and full of natural disasters.
But, if we do the things to keep us continuously converted to the Lord, and keep standing on sacred ground (home, church, temple), we will be happy amidst everything happening around us. We will find strength and joy. And, more importantly, we will be protected from the evil around us. Maybe not natural disasters, but we will be happy despite them.
And do we not need that protection? Especially now?
Its all about mindset. When Satan is hitting you...
Stop - notice what's happening to you
Drop - sit with those feelings and be uncomfortable to get stronger (like exercising)
Breathe - breathe through it
Be mindful. Be wise. Be aware.
