Did you answer the Apostles call to present an offering to the Lord?

General Conference concluded 125 days ago.
.
Why is this a significant thing to remember? For me, I had a change of heart. How about you?
.
Did you answer the Apostles call to present an offering to the Lord?
.
123 days ago, I solidified my offering I would present to the Lord, and I haven’t broken my commitment to Him.
.
You may be wondering what I’m talking about, or you may know precisely what I’m talking about.
.
Elder Ballard, a member of the 12 Apostles, addressed us during the Saturday morning session. At the end of his talk, he asked us to do something extremely important.
.
”As we listen to the Spirit during this 200th-anniversary celebration this weekend, consider what offering you will present to the Lord in righteousness in the coming days. Be courageous—share it with someone you trust, and most important, please take the time to do it!”
.
There are only a few people I’ve shared my ”offering to the Lord.” Those of you whom I’ve shared, by now, you know I’m committed.
.
I took the time to listen to an Apostle of God, and in return, I’ve been blessed tremendously. There have been many things come into my life over the last 123 days that I can’t describe.
.
My Father in Heaven has guided me to a better place. The adversary has been more present and robust than I’ve ever felt; however, the voice of the Lord has been clear.
.
Through the loud noise, I have reminded myself to stay focused on hearing Him. I’ve done this through prayer, daily study (more than I’ve ever done in my life. Yes, more so than on my mission), and music.
.
I know I have a loving Heavenly Father, and I know more than I’ve ever known that Jesus is the Christ. He is the Savior of the world & my best friend.
.
The scriptures are a guide through life, and I am indeed grateful to have testimonies from Prophets and Apostles in both the Bible and Book of Mormon.
.
I’m honored to hold & understand the priesthood authority. How blessed we are for a young boy to have such faith in God that he was trusted to bring to pass the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ to earth once again for the final time.
.
I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be true. Hear Him!
