Having Clean and Pure Thoughts

This week basically flew by. We were doing divisions and Elder Skrivanelli (from Argentina) was with me here in Colinas, Queretaro. We worked well. It’s always great to be rotating, moving, changing, and adjusting a lot. It helps you adjust to situations quickly and progress in knowledge.

Lately I’ve been thinking more about having good thoughts. In 2 Corinthians 10, it talks about bringing thoughts into obedience . Our thoughts we have are very important, because we usually end up acting on the thoughts we have, and if they’re not good, we won’t be doing good works among men.

I feel like sometimes, we get too focused on negative thinking, because of bad experiences we’ve had in the past. But we can’t let those ‘’road blocks’’ prevent us from pressing forward. What’s important is praying, studying the scriptures, attending church, all with positive thought thinking in mind and simply forgetting the past. So many miracles can happen if we do this with faith in Jesus Christ.

This week sure passed by quick but the work of God moves forward. Sometimes it’s slow, but as I focus just on the next step, the big picture comes into sight. I pray and hope all of you are doing well, and that we stay strong in the gospel. Have a great week!
