May 30, 2011


We had a great week. We didn't have any meetings or conferences or things like that. It was a pretty normal week, but it was still great.

God has not ceased to be a God of miracles (Mormon 9:15). I know that miracles happen. They occur every day. The Bible Dictionary says that, "Miracles should not be considered as deviations from the ordinary course of nature so much as manifestations of divine or spiritual power. Some lower law was in each case superseded by the action of a higher." To forgive and be forgiven is a miracle. To live with faith instead of fear is a miracle. To feel the prompting of the Holy Ghost is a miracle. To show love for another person is a miracle. To pray and know your voice is heard is a miracle.

I know that our Heavenly Father lives and loves us. The greatest miracle we have in our lives is the Atonement of Jesus Christ. He extends His arms to us daily, inviting us to come unto Him. It is a privilege, an honor, and a joy to be a voice of that invitation and see the peace and light and blessings that come into the lives of those who accept it.

Elder Fagersten
