You know it to be true

I was so excited for today. The end of my "March Madness". The day I would complete my Book of Mormon in 31 days. Not only would I be able to say that I read it again, quickly, but I was looking forward to Moroni's promise in the very last chapter of the entire book. It reads... 4 "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. 5 And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things." Although I've read The Book of Mormon several times, and I know with a surety that it is true, I kneel down and pour out my heart to a loving Heavenly Father for the words that I have read. For His son, Jesus Christ. For the prophets and their obedience and diligence of keeping records. For my faith and the desire to have more of it. I realize that I am showing gratitude more than I am asking for things. I am humbled. Once I finish, I continue to kneel there silently clinging to Moroni's promise knowing that the Holy Ghost will manifest the truth to me. Today? "You know it to be true." Yes, I do. I'm grateful, thankful, and humbled to have such a gift. I love my Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ.

I so impressed and inspired by you! I have 1 kid, and I think it's impossible to find time to read the scriptures. That's sad, I know. I need to be better! Maybe I wont be able to read it in a month, but at least by the end of the year. That's my new goal. I want to have these feelings you have, and be closer to the savior. Thanks for sharing!
