The Church of Jesus Christ is rooted in the truth of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s vision for mankind as communicated through scripture. It represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a gateway through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.
Today, we're continuing the week's theme of answered prayer. This testimony, related by Sister Sarah Watson, reminds us that God cares about the natural needs of our lives, especially when we have a need that feels like a very big deal.
It was after World War II and houses available for rent or sale were scarce. We were living with my husband's parents, and although they were very good to us, we were terribly crowded. We had one little girl, and we were expecting another child. We didn't have any money to buy a home and we couldn't find one to rent.
Today's experience, related by Sister Brenda Dominguez is about the comfort God provides while we're waiting to have our prayers answered. When we are struggling with His timing and His plan for us, He does not leave us alone.
I woke up one morning exhausted after a long night of crying. I had a massive headache, and I still felt discouraged and broken from the things that I'd been battling against. As I continued to feel broken and cried inside of me, I asked the Lord to help me.
