I beleive in Christ

As I have been going about my daily routine, I keep getting sidetracked.
I feel a little overwhelmed- I pause to try and regain a sense of direction. I try and focus a little, and then I feel pulled in a different direction.

I keep reminding myself to focus on what is most important.

I sing to myself when I am happy,
when I am troubled,
when I am thoughtful,
when I am searching for answers,
when I am bored.

And this is the song (I believe in Christ) that keeps going through my head ...

I believe in Christ; he is my King!
With all my heart to him I'll Sing;
I'll raise my voice in praise and joy,
In grand amens my tongue employ.
I believe in Christ; he is God's Son.
On earth to dwell his soul did come.
He healed the sick; the dead he raised.
Good works were his; his name be praised.

I believe in Christ; oh blessed name.
As Mary's Son he came to reign
'Mid mortal men, his earthly kin,
To save them from the woes of sin.
I believe in Christ, who marked the path,
Who did gain all his Father hath,
Who said to men, "Come follow me,
That ye, my friends, with God may be."

I believe in Christ- my Lord, my God!
My feet he plants on gospel sod.
I'll worship him with all my might;
He is the source of truth and light.
I believe in Christ; he ransoms me.
From Satan's grasp he sets me free,
And I shall live with joy and love
In his eternal courts above.

I believe in Christ; he stands supreme!
From him I'll gain my fondest dream;
And while I strive through grief and pain,
His voice is heard: "Ye shall obtain."
I believe in Christ; so come what may,
With him I'll stand in that great day
When on this earth he comes again
To rule among the sons of men.

I think that it might have been because of the middle line in the 4th verse "so come what may"
that I have had this song on my mind today.

There has been so much topsy turvey stuff going on- recovering from sickness, being with out electricity, car repairs, things not going as planed, broken dishes, missing shoes, preparing for Christmas, and vacations, preparing for a baptism, having the electricity go out again for a while-
sometimes you just feel in done, enough. Ready for things to slow down or just stop.

I needed to remember ...
I can handle things-
I have strength-
I know where to turn-
He will ease our burdens and make them light on our backs.
"so come what may"
I believe in Christ.

This is lovely. Thank you. I told Hillary that I read your blog and you know what she said?

"She is the best Mormon I know. She is the kind of Mormon I wish I was. If anyone were moving out or moving in and she and her husband saw them they went right over an offered to help. She is like that with all kinds of things. I love her."

I just thought you ought to know that. Hillary misses you.
