Stooping to New Lows

So, I’m not even going to tell you what buffoonery I encountered today…you wouldn’t believe me if I told you. This is actually becoming quite comical.

Instead I’ll remind you all:

In church a couple of weeks ago, my Sunday school teacher asked if anybody had gotten answers to their prayers in the scriptures that they thought would never in a million years be found there. This is happening to me quite frequently. The last significant one was Doctrine and Covenants 71:7-11

7 Wherefore, confound your enemies; call upon them to meet you both in public and in private; and inasmuch as ye are faithful their shame shall be made manifest.
8 Wherefore, let them bring forth their strong reasons against the Lord.
9 Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you—there is no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper;
10 And if any man lift his voice against you he shall be confounded in mine own due time.
11 Wherefore, keep my commandments; they are true and faithful. Even so. Amen.

I’ve accidentally read this passage at least 3 times thinking that was where I had left off.

God knows you, loves you, and hears you. This I know with a surety.

Goodnight and thanks for reading.

    1. This also brings to mind a story I have probably told you…
      I walked into my English class one afternoon. The power had gone out and it was dark. The teacher was out of the classroom trying to find out what was going on. One of the girls in my class decided it would be entertaining to spend that time saying rude hurtful things too me. I don’t remember what she said exactly. I just remember it stinging a bit. But as you know, my home life was kind of just a string of that, so I pretty much ignored it. The teacher came back and said that we were going to have class outside. As the rest of the class filled outside, I went to get a drink from the drinking fountain. As I stood there whiping the water from my mouth, Amber came running past me. Another girl came walking in, I asked what happened, she said that a seagull had shat on Ambers head.

      People usually refer to this as karma.
      But it is what the scriptures say .
      Todd refers to it as instant karma. Lol

      I hope they realize when it happens, repent and change.

      Just keep being you, precious sister. ❤️
