And then the pain started. This pain joined up with some emotional pain I have also been experiencing this week.
This new pain started under my right arm, inside my rib cage - maybe it is my ribs, I actually can't tell. It hurts pretty bad and I am certain I just pulled muscles or bruised ribs or whatever. It's annoying. And I have youth conference this coming week. And I started to turn into a whiner baby and I began to feel discouraged... and then, this morning I was reading a friend's blog and I remembered.
I remembered the armies of heaven at my disposal. I remembered that I am here on this earth at this time for experiences like this. I am being shaped, corrected, tutored... I read Elder Holland's talk referenced in Laurel's blog post and this line jumped out at me:
“Oh, Lord, I am yet strong. Give me one more mountain” (see Josh. 14:11–12)
I love that. Love it. Caleb was 85-years-old when he said that. If he could say it at that age, I can say it now.
Give me this mountain.
