A little bruised, but grateful

Figuring out how Rare Faith works is not always a smooth process. But for those who are willing to keep trying, and who learn something from each of their toe-stubbing experiences, the process does get smoother. Our life experiences provide the education, but it’s still up to us to get smarter with each lesson.

The following share comes from Mindset Mastery Program participant Daniel Adams, who writes:

“Last November I left my job … I sculpted what I wanted my days to look like, and they have been that way, for almost a year now.

“…The Mindset Mastery Program showed up … and miracle after miracle kept lining up… money from places we had never expected, rich relationships, and transformational healing events with scholarships to them. SO MUCH to be grateful for!!

“So, in module 13 I was so pumped to make something really impactful. I’ve always wanted to run seminars and retreats, and now I had all the tools to do it. I went all in. I posted the goal statement all around my house about running a seminar. And I felt it, and I knew it was happening.

“I meditated and visualized and sensitized on the specifics: where it was, who was there, programming for guests, how they would feel, how I would feel, …content for the workshops, how much to charge… and asked everyday ‘what do I do next’?  I went WAY out of my comfort zone, making requests and inquiries and building relationships all over the community and the internet.

“The spa gave me a discount on space rental… Two powerful marketers showed up and offered free, detailed advice about how to fill the event. Various contacts invited me to come to their yoga studios and promote the event. And then people started showing interest!!

“And then the terror barrier showed up, as we used our savings month after month… and many of my music therapy clients moved on… and all of a sudden we needed this retreat to sell (can you feel the lack creeping in?). And I fought inside myself: can I really live this life? Who am I to make a difference and live my dreams? …one by one guests backed out, or postponed for one reason or another. Monday the resort asked for a final count, and I got to report ‘Zero, this time.’

“…The goal was that I would ‘Create & facilitate a powerful retreat for 12 women at such and such resort on Aug 8-11’ (‘Facilitate’ in Spanish means ‘to make easy’.)

“Ironically, the goal statement did get fulfilled—every word. …The spa general manager set a meeting for Aug 8. During the meeting, the resort said they were willing to partner on the event, and discount both my cost and guest’s costs even further, take on the marketing, and offer it multiple times a year. Pretty miraculous, and it happened ON the day for which I set the goal—Aug 8.

“There I was, at the resort ON Aug 8, ‘creating and facilitating a retreat for women’. …Rad. 😆 and frustrating 😠 because I put a lot of energy into getting that goal statement just right, but apparently December is when I’ll be paid for it. …

“All our learning always counts. Nothing is wasted. And now I get to set some different goals, with complete confidence that this process really works.

“SUPPORT has overflowed through this whole process. And even though this is the first month in 10 years of marriage we’ve needed to carry a balance on the credit card and borrow money from family for rent …there is a peace behind this…and a sense that our manifesting powers are extra heightened right now… In the last 3 weeks our grocery bill has been nil, because people keep taking us to dinner, and we’ve had a few family reunions. Synchronicity really is the new normal.

“Perhaps the largest shift is the one in myself. I’ve been so worried… about how to make money, that I forgot that when you provide more value than you consume, money is a natural flow.

“I’ve looked at the path, (and PB & J) so disdainfully since last November, and to be applying for part time jobs … is a pretty awesome slice of humble pie 🥧 because gratitude is needed in every leg of the journey. But I really can make impact on the path, or off it. And when you catch multiple rabbits, does it really matter how long it takes? Nope.

Randy Mollup’s line about being grateful for sandwiches and watching them get bigger and better brought tears to me, and I realized where I’ve been in conceited mis-alignment.

“And we’re still safe…a little bruised…and pride wounded. [But] I choose even that to be on the plus side of the stickman.

“…Grateful for your support, Leslie. Being connected to the laws through this process has preserved our sanity & hope & strengthened our faith. Hearing the context of what lead to the broom snapping incident (salty windows, your moves to Arizona where the market was wildly different) has been mirroring our own journey. To see you on the other side of that is so comforting. Gratefully, Daniel and Tina Adams”

$6500 from nothing in just a few days

Here’s another installment in our collected chronicles of Tender Mercies.

Maybe you’re not a millionaire. Maybe you haven’t yet realized that big vision for your life. Maybe your relationships aren’t what you want them to be. Maybe you’re still waiting for that breakthrough that never seems to come. Maybe you struggle with your health, or maybe you’re caring for someone else who is.

But even so…

Have you seen God’s hand in your life, sustaining you from day to day?

Have you been given just what you needed, when you needed it, even if it was small and simple? Think: a tiny droplet on a blade of grass. It might not be full-on rainfall, but as the dew distills from heaven, have you noticed what God has done for you today?

Today’s share comes from Vanessa Kay, Fundamentals Ecourse participant and professional photographer (www.vkayphoto.com). She writes:

August 2, 2018

It’s been such an interesting week, so full of ups and downs – more specifically downs followed by ups! July has been a very challenging month for many reasons, not the least some very tight financial situations. When creating our vision board for this year, we really wanted to have a family trip (we hadn’t been able to do anything like that together for a couple of years because of my husband’s illness) – and to be able to send Kate to EFY. Well, the second goal was accomplished early in the year when thanks to some very generous relatives and earning a scholarship, Kate’s EFY spot was funded for us! The available date was for the end of July/beginning of August at BYU in Utah, so we decided to try to plan our family trip around that, since we have lots of family to stay with there, and so many things we love to do, such as hiking, visiting the temples, spending time with cousins, etc. As the end of July approached, things were very tight, and I had barely enough money for gas to get to Utah. I had booked some photo sessions for while I was there to make it a “working” vacation that would pay for itself, so I knew once I got there we would have enough money to get back. But getting there was looking to be challenging.

My husband and I had felt prompted several times that we needed to pay our tithing this month. Since he has been too ill to work, paying tithing has been a lot more of a sacrifice, because there is ALWAYS more month than money at our home and rarely enough to cover even the necessities. But we still managed to stay current on it usually at the end of the year when I have the majority of my business and can figure out what my actual profit has been after deducting expenses. But I had just enough in the bank to pay tithing on the one big order I had gotten from a client and we decided together we would do that in faith and trust that things would work out.

Two days later, just a week before our planned trip, I got a phone call from my husband in distress that his medicine/supplements had run out so much faster and that he needed $240 right away to get some more or he would be sicker than ever. I had only $50 in the bank after paying our tithing and I tearfully told him that I couldn’t make it happen right now, but that I would try to figure something out. I didn’t realize that the gal who leases my horse and was helping me clean at the barn could hear bits of our conversation, and before she left for the day, she told me she was going to be out of town the next week and offered to pay for next month’s lease 2 weeks early. It was exactly the amount I needed to get my husband’s medication. I gratefully accepted and he was able to go without skipping any doses. Tender mercy #1.

We had planned to leave on Sunday after church so that we could drop Kate off Monday morning for EFY and then stay until time to pick her up and take her home. On friday, both of our family cars refused to start. On our van, which I was planning on taking to Utah, the key would not even go into the ignition, in spite of all of our efforts (and liberal application of WD-40). To make matters worse, it was parked in an area that was going to have street sweeping in the morning and would be towed if left there. So we had to have it towed across the street in front of our house. The same day, the smaller car in our family just refused to start. We thought it might be battery related but were really not sure. I had a photo session with one of my best clients that night and I had to borrow a friend’s rental car just to get to my session. It was quickly looking like the trip we had planned for and dreamed about was just not going to happen. I didn’t have enough to fix either car OR pay for a rental car. I had barely enough money for gas. Kate would be sorely disappointed to miss EFY -and the family member that had helped pay to get her the spot wouldn’t be too pleased if she didn’t show up!

I was in need of a miracle, and fast! This wasn’t the result I had hoped for after paying my tithing. But I remembered all of the times that great setbacks have been followed by even greater blessings in my life and I prayed. I knew that the solution to our current problems was just an idea away. After my prayer, my thoughts were immediately directed to the beautiful sample image box I had purchased for $350 at a photography trade show in March. I was saving it for the perfect client. I thought about my client for that very evening – a family visiting from Singapore. I had already photographed their family once this month and their company also but had not received any orders yet. The idea that came to me was to create a beautiful set of prints to go in this matted image box and bring it with me to the session and offer it for sale. I got right to work and spent hours putting it together, finishing it barely in time to have my friend drive me in her car to the session.

After the session, I nervously presented the family the box full of beautiful images. They loved it. Even with the high price tag of $4000 (including all of the digital files). But she had to think about it. If she was going to buy it, she wanted to have the images I had just taken that evening included as well. Given the timeline of hoping to be ready to leave town by the next day and I still hadn’t downloaded, culled or edited any images from this shoot it felt impossible. But I told her I would make it happen. They were leaving to go back to Singapore on Monday evening and it would need to be completed by then.

I got to work right away after our session, but realized there would be no way I could have it culled, edited -and have them select their favorites – retouched, and printed by the next day. I would need to work around the clock until they left on Monday. And Kate had to be there Monday morning. Hmmm….next idea. Ask for pre-payment for one of my sessions I had booked in Utah. Sent a text and got enough money from that to book a flight for Kate early Monday morning. Then I had the idea to contact a few of my other Utah clients offering free delivery in person and a discount on their order if they wanted to order prints from their sessions – the would just need to choose their images right away so I could get to work. Well two clients took me up on this and they paid me enough to get a rental car for the week and a little extra.

So I booked a flight for Kate and reserved a car and got to work hoping that if I did a great job editing images from the Friday session that the client would decide to purchase the $4000 box. I worked all night Friday, all day Saturday and then all night until the wee hours of Sunday morning editing files for the client. I took the day off of work on Sunday, with many prayers of gratitude for all the answers and help I had been given. Sunday night my client emailed that she loved the photos I had worked on all day Saturday and would purchase the box with all new images from the most recent shoot. I was ecstatic.

I got up super early Monday morning take Kate to the airport, and came back and got to work creating prints and folio boxes. I was able to finish her box just before she left to go back to Singapore. Not only did she love the box, but her husband decided to order a whole set of matted prints for their company to give as gifts to their employees from the corporate shoot for another $1000.

I now had to fill all of those other print orders I had added to bring to my Utah clients and that took all day Tuesday, but I was finally able to leave on our trip with $6500 coming in that hadn’t been anywhere on my radar just a few days earlier.

I worked right up until we loaded the car Tuesday evening and was exhausted heading out. Wednesday morning I woke up and checked my email and found that my ex-husband, who hasn’t paid child support since April (and I hadn’t been counting on receiving any at all this month as his payments are sporadic at best) had made a payment that day, and it even included some arrears. I was astounded. My thoughts turned immediately to Malachi 3:10. “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”

I am amazed and humbled by what has unfolded in the last few days. This vacation we had dreamed about as a family is now a reality, albeit a few days shorter. I went from barely being able to pay $100 in tithing on a $1000 order, and then having barely enough for gas to travel and nothing to pay for car repairs to bringing in more than $7000 in just a few short days. All of which came as blessings from the Lord and inspiration as to what actions to take and who to call. I have learned (again) that even when things seem at their most desperate and impossible, there is always hope that things can turn around very quickly! And that it often seems to get worse before it gets better, as when right after paying tithing I didn’t have enough money to pay for medicine and then both cars broke down on the same day when things were already tight! And yet always, mostly at the last possible moment, something comes through.

Two more scriptures came to mind to me today as I was writing. One is Luke 12:24-28

24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?

25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?

26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?

27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?

And the other is Mathew 7:9-11

9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

Warmly,

Why choose joy

Today’s amazing share comes from Mindset Mastery Program participant Stephanie Lee (stephanieleeart.com). Worth reading to the end…

Hi All,

I’m taking a FB fast through the rest of June but HAD to break it just long enough to log in here and share some cool experiences I’ve had this week. It’s a little long, so grab a cup of tea or box of donut holes and settle in. 🙂

1. I’ve been sleeping too hot lately and decided we needed a ceiling fan for our bedroom. Something small and low profile and JUST enough to draw the cool air in from the window. I don’t like sleeping in wind. 🙂 I made a little quick movie of how it would feel in my mind and then went about my day. Today, I went to help my daughter pick up a bed she bought off FB marketplace from up the road and while I was there, the lady said “We have other stuff we are getting rid of if you need any of this” she sweeps her hand across the room and I see a white ceiling fan sitting on a chair. I ask her how much she is asking for it and she said “Nothing. You can have it.”

2. At the concert mentioned next, we see someone walk right in front of us with a large Tupperware container of Rainier Cherries. It’s cherry season here and they are abundant but they are still as expensive as all get out. Rainier cherries are my favorite and I said to Vince “Dang, those look good! I want to get my hands on some. I wish someone we knew had a tree with more than they can eat that we could just go pick.” Within ten minutes I get a text from a friend that I didn’t know even had any cherry trees saying “I have too many cherries. If you want to come pick some, come help yourself before the birds get them.”

3. I get a text on Monday from my daughter who (also texting her dad at the same time) said “You two have a date Wednesday night to see Chris Isaak at the Britt.” It’s our favorite outdoor concert hall – small and surrounded by lovely trees – and Chris Isaak is someone we both have enjoyed for years.

She had purchased us lawn seating because that’s all that was left. Lawn seating meant getting to the box office at 3 to pick up our tickets and then getting in line at the gate to wait for it to open at 6. The line, by then, would already be quite long from the people who already had their tickets in hand and then the rush would happen when the gates were opened and we all clamored for a space on the grass. The concert didn’t start until 7:30 so the thought of 4 1/2 hours of waiting was dreadful. All this on the hottest day of the year so far – a heavy, muggy, 97 degrees. Rain showers certain.

In front of the grass is a 1/3 circle of comfy benches, reserved seating, of course. In front of the benches is a small, lower artificial lawn which doubles as an orchestra pit in during symphony season. The absolute BEST seats in the house are the front row of benches, within 40 feet of the stage, if that. Even if the people in front of you in the pit are standing/dancing, you can sit comfortably and see right over their heads.

At about 11 am, I called to see if, by chance, there were any seats available for an upgrade. There were two…on opposite corners of the benches. We debated and decided we’d rather sit uncomfortably on the lawn (where it’s hard to get comfy and there are people potentially crammed up close or standing up the whole time) than to sit separately.

The lady told me to call back at around 4 to see if any seats had open. I did and none had. She told me to call back at 5:05 when the calls would be transferred to the actual venue box office (rather than the downtown offices) and they might know if any had opened up.

Before this point, we had gone back and forth and back and forth about whether to go early and stand in line or just show up when we wanted to and hope for a good seat. At one point, I took a single deep breath and envisioned out loud to my husband, “We’re just going to go when we want and we’ll get the perfect spot.” That was that.

We left the house at 4:45 and drove toward the venue. At 5:50 I called the box office and asked if there were any seats available for upgrading. Here’s how the conversation went:

“Hi. My name is Stephanie Lee and we have two tickets we are supposed to pick up there tonight. They are lawn seating and i’m calling to see if there happen to be any seats that have opened up?”

Nice Box Office Lady (heretofore refered to as NBOL): “Were the tickets purchased in your name? I’m not seeing any record of them…”

Me: “No. They were purchased over the phone on Monday by my daughter, Annabelle.”

NOBL: “Annabelle Lee?”

Me: “yes.”

NOBL (in a suddenly enthusiastic tone): “Oh! We have been talking about her off and on all day!”

Me: “Really? Why?” (perplexed…they’d never met her so I know her dimples didn’t make an impression like they so often do.)

NOBL: “Oh, nothing bad. It’s her name. I’m a HUGE Edgar Allen Poe fan and his poem Anabel Lee is my favorite. I asked her if she knew it when she called and she was so cute on the phone. We chatted about it.”

Me: “Oh how funny! Yeah…She gets that a lot but only from well read people.” (we laughed).

NOBL: “So you’re wanting two seats?”

Me: “Yes, if there are any available.”

NOBL: “Is Annabelle the one picking up the tickets? Are you coming to the concert with her?”

Me: “No. She isn’t coming. She actually bought them as a gift for her dad and me. She texted us and told us we have a date and bought us the tickets. We’re so excited.”

NOBL: “Oh my gosh! How old is she? (I tell her 17 and she says) Seriously?! That is SO nice of her to do that for you two! What a great girl you’ve got there!”

Me: “Thank you! We adore her too!” 🙂

NOBL: “Do you mind holding for a minute?” (Of course not, I say) She says she has to run check on something.

Five minutes later I hear her whispering to her coworker and can only decipher “Annabelle’s parents…I asked Chris and he’s totally cool with it.”

NOBL: “We found you two seats, front row, section A”.

I am dropped jawed. These are LITERALLY THE BEST seats in the house. I thank her profusely and hung up. We detoured to REI to grab some $5 ponchos in case the dark clouds decided to dump on us.

The time comes that we are at the venue walking up to the ticket booth and I have four windows to choose from, one of which says “closed”. I make eye contact in passing with the lady behind that window and smile. She opens her window and waves “I can help you here”. I tell her my name and before i can finish it she says excitedly, “You’re Annabelle’s parents!” She turns and repeats to her co-workers “Hey, this is Annabelle’s mom and dad!” Then back to me “We love her name and love that she bought you guys tickets. You’ve raised a great kid, mom and dad.” Then she turns and says “I have your tickets right here”. She hands us the envelope and says “Theres a little something extra in there from us. Enjoy your evening and good job with that kid of yours. She’s a smart cookie.”

We look in the envelope and there, with our tickets, is a gift certificate to our favorite restaurant in that town. We are stunned. We thank them profusely and float through the gate.

We find our seats and discover a volunteer usher (they are EVERYWHERE here) is waiting near our seats. As we sit down she says “Oh, YOU’RE the ones who got a couple of the Artist’s reserved seats! Lucky you two! That NEVER happens!”

Evidently the performing artist gets X number of seats they can offer to traveling companions or whatever. Evidently, even if they don’t need them, they RARELY remember to give them up so they are rarely available to the public. They are the best seats in the house. Turns out, when she went to “ask Chris”, she meant THE CHRIS! As in Isaak.

As I sit down, I remember the little movie I made in my mind at home about showing up when we wanted and finding the perfect seats. And here we were…even better than I had imagined.

To top it all off, Chris Isaak walked RIGHT BY US during his first song as he walked through the audience and the weather was PERFECT! I cooled down as the sun set, there were no mosquitos, and not a drop of rain fell. It really was so amazing and Chris and his band were so entertaining, told amazing stories, and didn’t once say anything off color or unsavory (unlike a couple of his music videos from the 90’s). It was fantastic.

So, here’s the interesting common thread in all three of these stories:

When I try really hard to “manifest” stuff, it seems like such an unproductive struggle.

When I choose visions from a place of joy and “wouldn’t that be fun?”, they seem to happen almost “too easily”.

The trick for me is to remember what Marianne Williamson says that the Course in Miracles says about miracles: There is no degree of difficulty for God when working miracles.

Note to self: choose joy whenever possible.

So awesome, Stephanie! Thanks for sharing!!!

Learn how (and why) it works, and also learn HOW to tell your mind to choose joy, so that you can experience life this way, too. How can I claim to know such things? It’s been my fascination and obsession for over 18 years to study, learn, practice, and share all the ins and outs of the process. It’s based in science and therefore testable and duplicatable. The challenge is controlling all the variables in the experiment. So many variables! To make a true scientific experiment of it, you need to set all the controls and only test the one variable: your thoughts. I can help you do that, because I’ve helped hundreds if not thousands of people do it since it became my mission to coach people in Rare Faith (my unique angle on the Law of Attraction). I can help you navigate past all the ways it doesn’t work, and show you how to make those fine-tune adjustments that will finally spring your lock open.

I’m telling ya, the same activity with greater awareness and understanding of the laws always yields better results. So come find out what you didn’t know you don’t know! Click to learn more, and join me here!

Feeling guilty for spending money

Today’s Tender Mercies story comes from Mindset Mastery participant Stephanie Lee. She writes:

Something interesting happened to me this week.

Over a year ago I had started a business making baby clothes. A lot of thoughtful preparation went into launching it – product prototypes, professional photography of said products, website set up, etc. It felt so divinely orchestrated and I was excited about how it could grow.

It did pretty well initially and I was excited. Without getting into all the details, I soon lost my excitement and coincidentally my sales decreased. I had ideas of new products I wanted to make but they would have required a very specialized and expensive machine. I couldn’t justify it and so my excitement and drive just sort of fizzled out. However, before the fizzle-out, I had very detailed visions of owning this machine. I would “see” the products I was making with it and feel them in my hands.

But I never went so far as to actually create any sort of plan for how to acquire it.

For some reason that makes no sense in the context of what I’m busy with in my life right now, I jumped on FB Marketplace the other day and searched for this machine not EVEN expecting to find one locally, let alone at a price I could afford. They are so specialized and if people have them they usually keep them so imagine my shock when I found one!

One year old, in mint condition, with $400 worth of expensive accessories. The very exact specialty accessories I would need to purchase additionally if I were to buy this machine new. The exact brand I had wanted.

I was shocked.

I messaged the woman and asked her about it. We arranged a phone call and there was something in her voice that felt so familiar. She had what I affectionally call “the Utah Lilt”. I said, “This is a super weird question…are you by chance LDS?” (It’s a rare thing here in many parts of Oregon).

She said “yes! Why do you ask?”

I told her it was her voice – that it sounded to familiar and peaceful and happy. She said that was the nicest thing any one has ever said to her. 😉

We chatted some more and made arrangements for my sister to pick it up. (She lives two hours north of me but my sister just happens to be coming down from even further north next week and can swing by and pick it up.)

She even told me that if I ever needed lessons using the machine or help of any kind, to call her or come for a visit and that she’d be happy to help me. She was feeling so sad to get rid of her machine (downsizing) but told me that all her sadness is gone and that she is THRILLED that it’s going to me!

We’ve messaged each other quite a bit since our phone chat and have become fast friends.

The night after sending her money via PayPal, I started to feel so guilty for buying it. I just “happened” to have made the exact amount of money for the cost of the machine in art sales the few days before finding the machine. It wasn’t earmarked for anything but I still felt like I shouldn’t have spent it so spontaneously on something I didn’t even have a really solid plan for.

I took this guilt to my journal and discovered how habituated I am to feel guilty for spending money. Even in things that will make me money or that I saved up for it that will allow me to expand my creativity. I felt prompted to write a list of all the “proof” that this purchase was exactly the right thing to do with that money including points like “It was for sale for nearly 1/3 if it’s value that also was exactly what I had made in sales the days before”. It felt like I was journaling what God’s reasons and ways of giving it to me. It was an awesome journaling experience and I felt so much peace about it.

Here’s what’s weird…

This machine doesn’t actually make sense in my life right now. And that feels, surprisingly, completely okay. It feels like one of the tumblers in the lock Leslie talks about and because I understand that analogy and the laws it relates to, I feel at peace knowing the other tumblers will continue to turn in perfect time and the reason I got this machine will become more evident. AND bless our family!

I am so grateful for the peace I feel at God’s pace. It hasn’t always been easy and tomorrow morning I might wake up completely unmoored from that peace for whatever reason and feel the impatience I have made into a living art form. 😂 But for now, I trust.

She later added this:

I was reflecting on many thing this morning and thought of the adage “just take the next right step” kept bubbling up. I’ve always assumed it meant the next logical step. It occurred to me that MY experiences have included a lot of steps that, at the time, seemed very out of order. So I’m reframing “the next right step” to mean “the next step you are being called to take even if it doesn’t feel like the next logical one.”

Wise words, Stephanie. I’ll end with this reminder: “…behold I say unto you, that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise. And the Lord God doth work by means to bring about his great and eternal purposes . . . (Alma 37:6-7).

This has been another installment in a series of articles about Tender Mercies. Stay tuned for more coming soon…

What about you?

Maybe you’re not a millionaire. Maybe you haven’t yet realized that big vision for your life. Maybe your relationships aren’t what you want them to be. Maybe you’re still waiting for that breakthrough that never seems to come. Maybe you struggle with your health, or maybe you’re caring for someone else who is. But even so…

Have you seen God’s hand in your life today? Have you noticed Him sustaining you from day to day?

“And in nothing doth man offend God, or against none is his wrath kindled, save those who confess not his hand in ALL things, and obey not his commandments,” (D&C 59:21, emphasis added).
