"Come, Follow Me."

A few days ago, I was reading through one of my favorite apps,
 LDS Words of Wisdom, and came across this quote by 
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf that has stuck with me all week.

 "Yet midst the multitude of voices and choices,
 the humble Man of Galilee stands with hands outstretched, waiting. 
His is a simple message: 'Come, follow me."

I had never read the phrase "Come follow me" quite like I just had. 
I felt as if the Savior was talking to me specifically.
Our sweet Savior longs for us to do our best and try our hardest.
 He wants us to be happy, to learn, and to be teachers. 
He wants us to follow Him, and to strive to be like him.
To reach for his hand when we're drowning in the chaos of life.

Come...follow me. 

All week I have tried to keep my thoughts and actions
directed towards Christ. I have kept my heart open to promptings of the spirit,
and have seen my love for my Savior grow.
My hope is that you too can follow in the footsteps of the Savior.
In every thought, every action, every happiness, and every sadness.

Follow Him.

"Come, follow me," the Savior said. 
Then let us in his footsteps tread,
For thus alone can we be one
 With God's own loved, begotten Son.

"Come, follow me," a simple phrase,
Yet truth's sublime, effulgent rays
Are in these simple words combined
To urge, inspire the human mind.

Is it enough alone to know
That we must follow him below,
While trav'ling thru this vale of tears?
No, this extends to holier spheres.

Not only shall we emulate
His course while in this earthly state,
But when we're freed from present cares,
If with our Lord we would be heirs.

We must the onward path pursue
As wider fields expand to view,
And follow him unceasingly,
Whate'er our lot or sphere may be.

For thrones, dominions, kingdoms, pow'rs
And glory great and bliss are ours,
If we, throughout eternity,
Obey his words, "Come, follow me."

-Come, Follow Me-

    1. You will LOVE the app. I've been trying to limit my social media time (easier said than done. haha) and every time I get on my phone I go straight to this app! It has the best quotes and somehow always shows ones that I need to hear. It's the best! Hope you like it as much as I do! ;)
