How do we learn everything?

How do we learn everything?
.
I always wondered how I was supposed to learn everything about the Gospel. I felt lost at times in seminary school, young men’s, Sunday school, and other church functions—everyone seemed to always know more.
.
Then one day it struck me like a ton of bricks.
.
They knew scripture mastery; they knew scripture stories; they knew church history; they knew a lot. BUT, I was the only one with the power to bear my own testimony. No one else could bear my testimony for me.
.
I have done my best over the years to read, study, read, study, ponder, pray, ponder and pray.
.
I haven’t been able to memorize many things and I am never going to be a biblical scholar or anything like that.
.
I wrote a post similar to this a little while ago, but this one I want to emphasize something different.
.
My spirit has memorized everything I have ever read and everything I have ever done.
.
What do I mean by that? When I hear scriptures, hymns, and teachings about Christ, my memory and feelings are brought back. There is a sense of peace and calmness.
.
When I’m put in situations where I don’t know what to do, the spirit redirects my mind to do what I’ve learned over the years. I couldn’t lead you to exact scripture on the spot, but I can tell you what the Lord has commanded me to do by showing you my actions.
.
Just because I can’t memorize or quote passages of scripture, doesn’t mean that my spirit hasn’t memorized how to respond and help me take the appropriate action.
.
We hear Him as we learn about Him. We hear Him as we do what’s right. As we study and learn, our spirit is being fed. Then when the time comes to react, the spirit will guide us. We will be able to hear Him.
.
Don’t worry about what you remember and don’t remember. Do the right things and do what you’re asked to do by your leaders. Your testimony will strengthen and people or worldly things may challenge you, but you’re testimony is something no one can take from you if are steadfast.
.
Hear Him!
