Favorite Scripture!

I feel so awful that I have missed my day to post the past two weeks. Last week my computer was down and I have been really sick with the flu this week. Anyway, I figured I would try to post today instead (sorry for two posts in one day). I wanted to share my favorite scripture with everyone.

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you." John 16:20-22

I love this passage of scriptures because it is such a wonderful reminder that although we may experience trials and sorrows in this life, we will have joy in the eternities if we prove ourselves faithful. Whenever I am struggling or going through something difficult in my life I turn to these scriptures and remember that I will only suffer for a short while and that once the trial is over I will once again have joy (joy that no one can take from me). So the next time you are struggling with something in your own life, turn to these scriptures. I know that they will bring you comfort as they have brought me comfort.

  1. Oh, I like that scripture! I think I especially like it because I will be having a baby soon, and I know that the joy will make all the discomfort I am feeling now worth it.

  2. Can I just echo Amy's comment? Not that my pregnancy has been super hard but it will be nice to be able to move like a normal person once again. But I love your thoughts, Meagan! And I've definitely missed your posts! Hopefully you get feeling all better and don't get sick again for a long time! Love ya!
