This past weekend, I felt prompted to seek out the advice of a couple from our old ward regarding a stupid, bothersome trial we have been dealing with. We love this couple with all of our hearts and both of us think of them as spiritual mentors and parental figures. One of the hardest things about moving from our old ward to this one was leaving behind these treasured friends.
We walked away after two hours of counseling with them with some terrific advice that I have been thinking about. The counsel they gave was to submit our will a little more in one particular area of our lives. It reminded me of this talk that was brought up one day at Institute last Spring. (Man, I miss Institute! Can't wait til that starts back up in the fall.)
I have included parts of the talk here. It is from Elder Neal A. Maxwell and it's called "Swallowed up in the Will of the Father.".
I think I have some room to improve ....
