Angel trusted the Lord to get her patriarchal blessing.

Her story is part of a series about this year’s theme.

We asked how you’ve come to trust in the Lord this year, and here’s one of the stories we heard!

“It can be hard to trust in the Lord. I was in the lowest of lows in my life when my patriarchal blessing appointment was approaching. The adversary made me think that I did not deserve to get my blessing. Then I heard the still and small voice to call the sister missionaries in my area. I didn’t know why—but I trusted in that prompting and followed through. When the sisters came, they comforted me, and I felt the Savior’s love for me so strongly and so very clearly.”

“This experience has shown me that as long as I trust in the Lord and especially in His timing, that line upon line everything WILL fall into place. Trusting in the Lord requires a lot of patience, but it also requires a lot of proximity. Though we cannot be close to our Savior physically, it is so important for us to always be drawing nearer to Him.”

“I can’t even begin to explain how much of an actual blessing my patriarchal blessing is now, especially in times of adversity. My patriarchal blessing strengthens me so much by continually reminding me that I am a divine daughter of God and that He knows me personally and knows my pains too. It has given me strength to wake up every day and try again and become a better person, line upon line!”

We’ll be sharing more of these stories with you throughout the month, so stay tuned!
