I hate it, but “it must needs be, that we have an opposition in all things.”
According to a Book of Mormon prophet, Lehi it is part of our Heavenly Father’s plan. The plan that allows us to choose and experience life on earth.
The part that is not my favorite, is the part about going through bad, so we can appreciate the good.
I have been sick for the last few days. I was dealing with a lot not pleasant things that my body was doing. And I had many thoughts cross my mind that I hate being sick. I don’t ever want to be sick!
I hate it!
Then I remind myself, if I was never sick, I wouldn’t appreciate how good it feels to be healthy. We actually had this illness going through our family. I told Kelsey, I don’t know how people who have to deal with a long term sickness do it. These people who don’t feel good for weeks, or years, and seem to still be able to have a positive attitude and a smile on their face. They are amazing. I’m grateful for their example.
I am so happy I’m feeling better.
And pray others who don’t feel good, will feel better as well.
Yay, for opposition!!! Yay, for bad and good! God is great and I’m grateful for His beautiful plan of happiness!
