A Child of God

So one of my new year resolutions was to actually get up in fast and testimony meeting and share my testimony. I don't know why but it is so hard for me to do that! I have never been able to say one with out crying and I just don't like getting up to share my testimony. I have given myself the excuse that I share my testimony with others through music. But today I finally got up and bore my testimony. As soon as they turned the time over to us, my roommate and I sat up and were the first ones. I just semi talked about how the gospel is like a universal language. Just like a smile, or the word "love", no mater where you are, they mean the same thing. In a world that is constantly changing, Pluto is a planet...now it's not; eat 6 servings of carbs a day....now limit carbs as much as you can. I'm just so grateful to have the gospel as my constant guide. No matter where you may find yourself in the world, the gospel will always be the same.

This testimony meeting has been one of the first in a while where there was never a moment of silence. There was always someone getting up to share their testimony. It was so refreshing to see how eager everyone was to share their testimony with others. The spirit was so strong and I am so grateful that I was able to add my simple testimony. One such testimony that touched mine was my roommates. She talked about the phrase, "I am a child of God" and how we would all treat others as such and think of ourselves as such if we only knew always the true meaning of that phrase. It's such a simple doctrine but yet I feel it's the hardest to grasp sometimes. We are always our worst critic and the hardest on ourselves. If we all knew we were children of God, how better would the world be. We would see those we may not get along with in a different light. Most importantly of all, we would see ourselves in a different light.
