on sunday i was really inspired by this talk by Elder Oaks which our relief society lesson was formed around. My favorite quote from the talk: "We have to forgo some good things in order to choose others that are better or best because they develop faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and strengthen our families."
this is exactly what i was needing to hear. i recently got out of a relationship and it was really hard for me because i was really compatible with this young man. out of all the people i have dated i have never felt so relaxed and so much myself around someone. i was devastated when we broke up because i truly couldn't imagine ever being so compatible with another person. after a while i realized that although i was very compatible with this person we were not on the same level spiritually, which is so important. on sunday this talk really hit home because although things were good, they weren't the best they could be. i had been praying for heavenly father to help me get over this break up, and on sunday it was as though this lesson was meant just for me. another tender mercy.
