Trying Not to Cop an Attitude With God 


I sat down to read my scriptures tonight while I was in a really crabby mood. Don’t you just love how God can call you on your bad attitude or mess-ups using words written over 2000 years ago? Okay, so that might have been a little sarcastic. I am grateful He can do that, but sometimes I just don’t want to hear it right away. 

I’ve really got to learn and remember that it’s better for me to take my problems to God and ask for help, rather than sit around whining about them. 

I’m just grateful I have the scriptures to help get me back on track when I have a temporary derailment and forget in whom I need to put my trust. Even if it takes me a little time to get there. 

Alma 36:2-3

“2 I would that ye should do as I have done, in remembering the captivity of our fathers; for they were in bondage, and none could deliver them except it was the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; and he surely did deliver them in their afflictions. 3 And now, O my son Helaman, behold, thou art in thy youth, and therefore, I beseech of thee that thou wilt hear my words and learn of me; for I do know that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions, and shall be lifted up at the last day.”
