What blessings have come through your faith in Jesus Christ?

  • The most recent Blessing I have received was a vision which I have been instructed to share as often as I am able. Through that vision I have a 100% assurance that Jesus Christ is not only our Saviour,but is also the creator of this world in which we live.This vision also gave me a 100% assurance that Joseph Smith is the Prophet of the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. My Faith in Jesus Christ has never been as strong as it is now. There is no doubt in my mind at all that the Church is true. I know that my Faith in Jesus Christ has increased tenfold since that wonderful experience occured. Show more

  • Our little family's world was shaken when our son was born with severe, intractable epilepsy. He has since received a surgery that has healed him, however for 15 months we watched as he seized 20-40 times a day, and regressed developmentally. There were many times that we teetered on the brink of hopelessness. However, it was at those times that a prayer, a scripture, or a visit from someone would remind us of the divinity and power of Jesus Christ. He who calmed the winds and waves during his mortal life could calm our hearts. He who knows everything could help us know how to deal with the realities of our son's illness. Show more

  •  Believing that Jesus Christ is my Savior has brought me a lot of comfort throughout my life. I try to keep in mind how the Bible describes his life as being full of service to others. He performed so many miracles to bless and uplift other people. I believe that he has not changed at all in the past 2000 years I believe that he still performs miracles in the lives of those who love him. I believe this because I have seen miracles in my life. There have been times when my future seemed so bleak that I wasn't sure I wanted to keep going, but I have always found peace through prayer, and I believe that this peace is only possible because of Jesus Christ. The Old Testament prophet Isaiah prophesied that Jesus would carry our griefs and sorrows, and I have felt that in my life as I have prayed for strength to make it through the hard times in my life. Because of Jesus Christ, I have been able to feel joy even when I felt like nothing was going my way, and that joy has seen me through some very lonely days. Show more

  • I was out of work for almost a year. We were praying and searching the internet for me a job. One day I was feeling really down and I went down on my knees to pray to Heavenly Father. I said" Heavely Father you know what jobs are out there in the world that I would be able to do, I am putting my trust in You to find me the right job and I am not going to worry about it anymore. It was not even 2 weeks went by that my husband was looking on the internet for jobs and He told me about the job at John Deere. When he told me about it, I said "That is the job I am going to get." Not even a week went by they called me in for testing and interview. To make a long story short, I got the job. I thank Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ everyday for my very great fortune. Show more

  • One of the most amazing blessings is my perspective. I know that we were with God before we were born, and that this life is not the end. Our life on earth is a time to prepare to meet God. Having this beautiful view of the bigger picture comforts me everyday. Because I am going into medicine I am frequently in the hospital. I've seen death and the impact it has on loved ones. I have been blessed with comfort and peace knowing that they are not gone forever. When I was little my younger brother passed away after a fight with cancer. I could never allow such a thought as that I could never see him again to enter into my mind. The clear perspective the gospel brings is brilliant light that cuts through the smoke of doubt and fear. I know I will see my younger brother again, that this life is not the end. Show more

  • My oldest son passed away at the age of 32. My youngest son passed away at the age of 39. My love for my sons is, and has always been at an all time high. My sorrow knew no bounds. However, my faith held me up; without which, I would have been a basket case. Yes, I grieve. Yes, I cry. Yes, I miss my sons immensely. I am at peace with their passing. I know I will be blessed to be with my sons again because; we have been sealed in the temple for time and all eternity. Show more

  • My life in general is a blessing, I have had a good life. I believe that my life growing up to now has been a great adventure. My family would agree with me when I say that every day would could see blessings from our Father in Heaven, they could have been small blessings like making it to school on time or a big blessing such as finding a hundred dollar bill hidden in the hidden pocket of my wallet and using it to pay a bill. We have seen blessings throughout our lives because we have had faith in Jesus Christ. I thank my parents for that. We just need to recognize when we are blessed. I do not believe in coincidences, I believe God has a hand in everything and blesses us when we do what He asks us to do. Show more

  • In my teenage years, every week at church I would recite the Young Women's Organization's theme. "We are daughters of our Heavenly Father who loves us and we love Him. We will stand as witnesses of God at all times, in all things, and in all places as we strive to live the Young Women values, which are faith, divine nature, individual worth, knowledge, choice and accountability, good works, integrity, and virtue..." I never thought much of it then. Although, three years later this theme changed my life. I was living in Brazil with my husband for the summer while he completed his internship for college. While living there, I was surrounded by beautiful, thin, and intelligent women. I was comparing myself to them which brought me incredible despair day after day. Finally one morning, as I was sobbing out of self-pity, the words came to me, "I am a daughter of God and HE LOVES ME." Over and over these words came and at first I didn't know where I had learned them. Then it dawned on me. This was the Young Women Theme I had learned in my youth. I then continued to recite the theme and again, the spirit whispered again to my soul, "Never does it say that you have to be a certain weight or look a certain way. You are a daughter of God who LOVES YOU!" Wow, what comfort was I brought! From that point on, my focus had changed. I remembered that I am a daughter of God and that no matter how I look, He will always love me. Show more

  • Technology to the Rescue The Sunday started out normally that day in July 2010. While in our choir practice we noticed a family looking up and down the aisles in the chapel and especially around the organ. They left, but soon returned again to look with more intensity around the organ. They asked if they could interrupt our practice. It seems like one of their two younger girls, probably around six years of age, had lost a valuable diamond friendship ring. The other sister had a similar ring….a small diamond and a thin gold ring. Afterwards while outside, I noticed that the family was thoroughly scrutinizing the grass on either side of several sidewalks that are in front of the church. The girl has apparently tried to put her ring in her purse then ran and skipped up and down the sidewalk steps in a playful fashion. They found nothing. I asked them if they thought a metal detector would help. They didn’t know, but were willing to try anything because of the sentimental and monetary value of the ring. I got in the van and drove home and got my old metal detector out of the garage and drove back. Luckily the battery was still good. The father took the detector and began scanning the areas on either side of the sidewalks. I left the van unlocked so they could return it when they had to leave. I then went into church. Lo and behold, when I came out later, there was a note under my windshield wiper blade that says it all. “Thank You So Much. We found it. You saved the day for a little girl !!!!!” I still don’t know if the metal detector actually detected the ring or just the fact that they systematically swept it back and forth across the lawn when they noticed the ring? I, of course, will think that my metal detector was what found the ring. I suspect that they even said a prayer, but science has a tendency to help prayers get answered when used. What do you think?
