Just Talk

After Alma recounts the events of his conversion to his son Helaman, he goes on to give him advice on how to conduct his life. As part of this advice he says, "Yea, and cry unto God for all thy support; yea, let all thy doings be unto the Lord, and whithersoever thou goest let it be in the Lord: yea, let all thy thoughts be directed unto the Lord; yea, let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever" (Alma 37:36).

I love that verse and feel like it sums up everything there is to know about conducting our lives. If we love the Lord constantly, and direct all of our thoughts to Him, we can't go wrong. In other words, if we just talk to Him all day long we will be in good shape.

Simple? Yes, but powerful.

This has been one of the things that I've done a lot more of over the past couple of years and it has been a great blessing to me in keeping my thoughts focused and anchored on positive things. :)
