My dear friend Becky Perry gave a lesson in church several years ago that I still remember. I think that's saying a lot dear Becky, because do I remember any other church lessons from years ago? Hmmmm... nope.
It was about asking questions. Being curious and asking God lots of questions. It's good whether reading scriptures or living daily life- to be in a state of curiosity and be often asking God whowhatwherewhenwhyhow. I LOVED this. I think asking God lots of questions makes me more open. AND it means I don't have to have all the answers- whew.
So today I asked God the same question I have asked for YEARS seriously no joke. "Dear God, why are some people's difficulties so public and they receive so much support for the hard thing they are going through, while some people's difficulties are so private and lonely? It seems unfair." And I very clearly knew the answer today: "Because, no matter how much support is around, each person has to find peace in their own heart through their own personal experience with the Savior."
Obvious answer? Yes! But it took me years to be ready to hear it, and I am grateful.
Moral of the story: Keep asking questions, even for years! God likes it and it's good for you! :)
