One day recently after reading about a prophet "pouring out his whole soul" in a garden tower, I took the time to really pray. I was trying my best to pour out my soul to my Father in heaven, and I felt so much better for having done that. So, after thinking about it but not doing it all morning, I finally made myself kneel down and really talk to God.
I felt like the rest of the day was a gift. It felt like I had Heavenly Father walking beside me all day. I felt very loved when my perspective shifted so quickly, and I had more energy than usual and no headache. I had made good progress on the things I was worried about before I got the call that Dan was sick and I needed to go get him. In the car I got the idea of playing the thankful game. Ideas can be gifts from the Spirit too! I just listed things I saw that I was thankful for all of the way to the school. That is a happy activity.
I am trying to learn to pour out my soul to God on a regular basis, and to notice, and acknowledge all of the things around that I have to be thankful for. I am always glad when I take the time to do these things because it makes it easier for me to notice and feel Heavenly Father's love for me.
