This post in is honor of Sister Mindy and the great work that she is doing. She is such an example to me and she inspires me to be a better person and to try to do my part in furthering the great work of our Heavenly Father.
This quote is about missionaries . . . but arent we all missionaries?
I just really liked this quote when I heard it and I thought that it is a good one for all of us regardless of our callings. We all must endure to the end and work hard at spreading the Gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ. We dont have to officially be called on a mission to do that.
So I thought I would share this with you all and hopefully it will give you a boost like it did me ~ to try a little harder and to push ourselves a little harder in doing the work of the Lord. We can do it with our families, in our church callings, in temple service, in reaching out to the ones around us that need uplifting, and in finding those who are searching for the truth.
We can help the work move forward in our own way and in our own little corners of the world.
"I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed. The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made; I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won't look back, let up, slow down, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future is secure. I'm finished and done with low living, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tinted visions, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals. I no longer need preeminence, positions, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don't have to be right, first, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk with patience, am lifted up in prayer, and labor with power. My face is set, my goal is heaven. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, divided or delayed, will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table with the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won't give up, shut up, or let up until I have stayed up, stored up, and paid up for the case of Christ. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops me and when He returns for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me”. - Elder Henry B. Eyring
