May 19, 2021 - Family History

You will find not only protection from the temptation and ills of this world, but you will also find personal power, power to change, power to repent, power to learn, power to be sanctified, and power to turn the hearts of your family together, and heal that which needs healing.

Elder Dale G. Renlund, RootsTech 2016 Family Discovery Day

A while back, I had an impression to learn and do family history work. I received another impression today. I was also guided to Elder Renlund's April 2018 General Conference talk. Then I came across the above quote by him.

I am starting to understand the blessings we receive when doing temple and family history work. Not just blessings either, but absolute power in our lives to overcome challenges, resist temptation, and flat out beat the adversary.

I am drawn to the word "healing". I need healing in my life. I'm sure we all do. But the healing I need is not only for the obvious physical struggles that I have, but other aspects of my life too. I long to be made whole.

So, I will trust the Lord Himself when He says, that I will receive healing. Maybe not in this life, but, nevertheless, it will come. What a marvelous thought and a powerful hope.
