The House of the Lord.


The House of the Lord.
.
What a great day. The town I live in received an announcement for the new location of the Temple. It was originally to be located in a different place in town but there were conflicts.
.
Today, they announced it and it’s within walking distance to my home. The name was changed from the Tooele Valley Temple to Deseret Peak Utah Temple.
.
I’m grateful for Temples. They provide many opportunities to hear Him. I will never forget four specific moments. They have stuck with me and are vivid memories. The time I went through for myself, the time my wife went through for herself, when I was sealed to my wife and the time we had our two nieces sealed to us.
.
These are memories where I have never before felt closer to my Savior and my Heavenly Father. They are sacred moments.
.
The Temple of the Lord is a sacred place, and can bring much soothing balm to the troubled soul. It’s something to really embrace and take advantage of.
.
Ask yourself this, If you could go to the House of the Lord, and He invited you, what would you do to prepare today?
.
It’s that’s simple. The Lord has invited us, and He wants us all to return (obviously, when they are-open). That doesn’t mean you should hold off on obtaining a recommend—Always be temple ready—just like you should be prepared for when the Lord comes.
.
“Just as our Redeemer gave His life as a vicarious sacrifice for all men, and in so doing became our Savior, even so we, in a small measure, when we engage in proxy work in the temple, become as saviors to those on the other side.” President Hinckley.
.
“You are never lost when you can see the temple. The temple will provide direction for you and your family in a world filled with chaos. It is an eternal guidepost which will help you from getting lost in the ‘mist of darkness.” Gary E. Stephenson.

Hear Him!
