There is no unknown in Christ

There is no unknown in Christ.
.
How do we calm our troubled minds? I understand this may seem easier said than done, but it’s really pretty simple. The following scripture from the Lord teaches us how.
.
“Draw near unto me, & I will draw near unto you; seek me diligently, & ye shall find me; ask, & ye shall receive; knock, & it shall be opened unto you.” D&C 88:63.
.
As we serve Jesus Christ, He comes to us— It’s that simple.
.
So, you’ve had a terrible day, & things haven’t worked out the way you expected them to work out. What’s your plan of action? I can tell you this, pouting & idleness isn’t going to help you draw nearer to the Lord. You’re going to need a new approach.
.
As I think back to President Nelson & his challenge the week before Thanksgiving, I reflect back on all the social media posts prior to it. I read a lot of ”pouting” from grown adults—a lot of idleness, too. Everyone was pouting about our current situation instead of thinking outside of the box to make things better.
.
Then, a wise man named Russell M. Nelson, the Prophet of the World, asked us to stop. The mouthpiece of the Lord told us, grown adults, to change. He thought outside of the box. He was directed by the Lord for drawing near unto Him.
.
These destructive arguments & disagreements between each other are nonsense.
.
The Prophet of God taught us how to change the world. The world as a whole saw social media change for seven days—members & members of other faiths.
.
We listened, & we acted; in other words, we drew nearer to Him, & He drew nearer to us.
.
How did this make you feel? It made me feel better about opening my social media. I was curious about what different people were grateful for & anticipated the next day to see what they again were grateful for.
.
Through US & through OUR posts, we were able to feel the Lord.
.
He said this to us last week, “I have spoken unto thee because of thy desires; therefore treasure up these words in thy heart. Be faithful & diligent in keeping the commandments of God, & I will encircle thee in the arms of my love.” D&C 6:20.
.
He loves you & wants you to know; there is no unknown in Him. Hear Him!
