Spring of Anticipation

Ferris_wheel[1]Beautiful spring weather gives me carousel-like feelings. While the carousel lifts certain chairs high in the air, others are lowered. For me, the rising chairs represent spring. They remind me of high hopes for a new growing season in my garden, renewed faith in Jesus’ resurrection which we celebrate at Easter time, and the anticipation of hearing the Lord’s direction from living apostles and prophets. On April 4-5, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will hold a Scripturesgeneral conference for the whole world to hear. The words spoken become living scriptures to draw us closer to Christ. “When we heed the words of the prophets, we build our homes and our lives upon an eternally sure foundation, the ‘Rock of our Redeemer’ who is Christ, the Son of God” (Carol F. McConkie). When we build our foundation upon the Rock of our Redeemer, we are safe from the adversary’s grasp. “That when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to…misery and endless wo” (Helaman 5:12). I want to have ears to hear and a heart open to understand the personal revelations of God in this inspired broadcast. These are Reasons to Rejoice!
