Revelation

I woke up this morning and promptly climbed into bed with OlderAndWiserToo. We started telling eachother about our outings the night before, but the conversation quickly turned to school and classes. She is taking a D&C class, as am I, and we shared some of the insights we have gained in just a few weeks of study.

I was inspired by her goal of recieving personal revelation through her study. I was hit once again with just how much the Lord has in store to pour upon us if we but search diligently and be believing. After conversing for nearly an hour, we both decided to get up and after grabbing a quick brunch, sitting down at the kitchen table and opening up the books of revelation made so accessible to us. The warm sunlight that illuminated the pages spread out on the table was a physical confirmation that I can be enlightened by the Spirit. I opened up to the Section we had been studying in class the time we last met and the words, like the sunshine, seemed to warm me, to wrap me in a feeling of pervasive fire that burns, eminating outward. My eyes began feeling their way through the verses and I stopped on these words:
For by my Spirit will I enlighten them, and by my power will I make known unto them the secrets of my will - yea, even those things which eye has not see, nor ear heard, nor yet entered into the heart of man.
D&C 76:10
It was incredible to know again in that moment that I can receive insights divinely tailored to fit my needs; needs that sometimes feel so big, I can't predict what will be large enough to fill the void. But true to what I have been taught and understood, there is power in the Comforter which so often resides within arm's reach.
