This is not to boast or brag, I just want to get my thoughts and experiences out. I was called to be a Relief Society president for our branch. President Blau asked me on Sunday 9/14, and it was minutes before sacrament was to start. So of course my heart and head were pounding. But, ever since he asked me that question (that everyone else knew was coming but me) I have felt different. Not of feeling like "I have the power" (just kidding by the way), but that I am really feeling like I am a part of Heavenly Fathers plan.
You know when you have deja vu. Well I kind of felt like that with my patriarchal blessing. Has something ever happened to you in your life, and all of a sudden your fulfilling what your patriarchal blessing had said. Well this was it, this was the moment. Well actually it was during my set apart blessing that Pres. Blau gave me. His words were the same words in my patriarchal blessing. I truly felt the hand of God on my head that moment. Brint and I talked about it after the blessing, and the words were so literal that it even startled him. I feel different, I feel empowered. By that I mean I feel more confident, that Heavenly Father is behind me 100%. That I know there will be struggles and sacrifices with this calling, but I will not be alone.
All I can say it's amazing when you finally see your purpose in this life, and all the possibilities that are out there. That doors start to open, you step outside of the box, your comfort zone. And you feel like you have accomplished something and made a difference. What better thing to do but to be on the Lords errand.
