And promised blessings to look forward to!

Our dear prophet, President Russell M. Nelson, spoke three times at general conference. Each time, he expressed his love for us. He also invited us to do certain things, promising blessings in return:

  1. Invitation: “Spend more time in the temple, and seek to understand how the temple teaches you to rise above this fallen world.”2
    • Promise: “Increased time in the temple will bless your life in ways nothing else can.”3
  2. Invitation: “Cherish and honor your covenants above all other commitments. … Let God prevail in your life.”2
    • Promise: “I promise you greater peace, confidence, joy, and yes, rest.”2
  3. Invitation: “Ask [God] to enlighten your mind and send the help you need.”2
    • Promise: “Our Heavenly Father and His beloved Son, Jesus Christ, stand ready to help you.”3
  4. Invitation: “Each day record the thoughts that come to you as you pray; then follow through diligently.”2
    • Promise: You will “find rest from the intensity, uncertainty, and anguish of this world by overcoming the world through your covenants with God.”2
  5. Invitation: “Take charge of your own testimony. … Work for it. Nurture it so that it will grow. Feed it truth. … Make the continual strengthening of your testimony of Jesus Christ your highest priority.”2
    • Promise: “Watch for miracles to happen in your life.”2
  6. Invitation: “Live the higher laws of Jesus Christ.”2
    • Promise: “Our hearts and our very natures begin to change.”2

Peace, joy, help, miracles?! Those are some pretty awesome promises! Let’s put the prophet’s words to the test and see how the Lord can change our lives and hearts over the next six months!
