False Limitations


This week was SUPER DUPER busy. We were swamped with work, meetings, reporting, practice, and a whole bunch of other stuff that we barely had any time to breathe. But we managed. It was great though! We've been practicing for the past couple of weeks for a choir performance this upcoming Saturday. Super nervous but also super excited! We also had MLC this week. All the mission leaders got together to discuss the needs of the mission and what might help it improve even more. It was great and I learned so much! We also had Zone Training which was super awesome. I love learning from insights of other missionaries. We were able to give a workshop too! 

That leads me to the topic of our workshop and the topic of the week: False Limitations. We all have standards. We all set goals and strive every day of our waking lives to achieve those goals. But do we know why our standards are the way they are? And the same goes for how high we set our goals. Sometimes I think we're too scared to aim high, to achieve what seems impossible. We give ourselves these false limitations and set for substantially less than what we know we are capable of. I think if we break that attitude and strive to do something more every day, we'll undoubtedly achieve all the goals that we've ever set and will ever set in our lives. Needless to say it won't be easy. It takes a push, or even sometimes a forceful shove, to get to where we've dreamed of going. But we can get there, through patience and our effort to do so. I know that our Heavenly Father has high expectations for each and every one of us. Although we might not be perfect, he's give us every capacity and capability in order to do not only what we want to do, but what He wants us to do. And with that the seemingly impossible becomes reachable. Mosiah 4:27 says, " is expedient that he should be diligent, that thereby he might win the prize." So whatever our "prize" may be in this life, we be as diligent as ever in obtaining it. And by that, the Lord will certainly help us in every step of the way. Thanks for the emails everyone. I'll catch you again next week.
