Captain's Message: You Matter to Him

Well team, here is a long overdue Captain's Message. I asked for ideas in team chat about Conference talks that lifted you up - You Matter to Him, by Dieter F. Uchtdorf was suggested and I really, really loved it. Here is a selection from the talk:

"....No matter where you live, no matter how humble your circumstances, how meager your employment, how limited your abilities, how ordinary your appearance, or how little your calling in the Church may appear to you, you are not invisible to your Heavenly Father. He loves you. He knows your humble heart and your acts of love and kindness. Together, they form a lasting testimony of your fidelity and faith.
….please understand that what you see and experience now is not what forever will be. You will not feel loneliness, sorrow, pain, or discouragement forever. We have the faithful promise of God that He will neither forget nor forsake those who incline their hearts to Him. Have hope and faith in that promise. Learn to love your Heavenly Father and become His disciple in word and in deed."

I really encourage you to read the whole talk here; it is wonderful!

Enjoy the rest of your Holidays - I will do one more Captain's Message before 2012!
