This week was pretty solid. We had another crazy rain storm and I think they get worse every time! There was a lot of lightning and hail, too! We were just about to leave to work but I suggested that we waited 5 minutes to see if the little drizzle would pass, or multiply. and boy did it multiply! for about two hours we couldn´t leave!! And when we did, we were in rivers!!! There was absolutly no luck in trying to teach, cuz everybody was inside and didn´t want to get wet, So we decided to go buy some sandwiches. While we were eating there was a lady on the radio begging for help cuz her casa got flooded. so we wrote down the direction and headed over. But we couldn´t do anything cuz we have to wait til it stops raining for like 2 days to be able to help or something like that..?
This week as I finished Alma, I found a really solid scripture that made me think.. Alma 60:21
Or do ye suppose that the Lord will still deliver us,while we sit upon our thrones and do not make use of themeans which the Lord has provided for us?
Thats so right!! we have to make use of the things God has given us! we cant just sitting around all day waiting for him, when he has given us the means to do stuff ourself!!
Then it goes onto say in 23
We need to take action with our lives and clean our inner vessels to be in harmony with him!
Do ye suppose that God will look upon you as guiltlesswhile ye sit still and behold these things? Behold I sayunto you, Nay. Now I would that ye should rememberthat God has said that the inward vessel shall be cleansedfirst, and then shall the outer vessel be cleansed also.
Christ is coming, and SOON!!! We NEED to be ready! The church is putting a lot of empesis on phisical and spiritual selfsufficiency!! WHY? Because we need to be prepared spiritually and phisically for when he comes, and we don´t have too much time left to prepare!!!!
I love you guys, hope you have a great week!
