More Exhaustion

Wow. My Internet went out and I had no way of posting. And I was exhausted anyway. Sorry.

I think that today I'm just tired. And stressed. And I'm not really sure what is going to happen in my life. But that's ok... because I'm sure God will take care of me.


  1. I just found your blog. I've been reading back through your posts and I say: good for you! Here's the thing. (tell me if I'm wrong) Every single person has temptations, frustrations, trials, sins ... we all fall short and we all need the Atonment. Some of us give in to our temptations and take what we think will be the easier road. Some of us fight against our temptations every single day and find there is peace in pushing through it and not giving in. For some of us our temptations are obvious to others, for some of us they are well hidden. As I listened to conference, particularly President Packer's talk, I thought how important it is to find what the prophets are saying to ME and to rededicate myself to fighting my own personal battles, knowing that through the Atonement I have the greatest team on my side. Being "gay" and staying stalwart is no different than being "alcoholic" but not drinking, being "angry" but holding my tongue, being "greedy" but paying tithing and avoiding debt anyway. Best wishes for your continued stalwartness (is that a word?) And thanks for sharing.

  2. Denalee: We do each have our own individual trials. Our own individual blessings. Our own individualized experiences here on Earth designed to help us on our unique path to return to God. Some things we have in common... and some things are completely different from one person to the next.

    I'm glad that you found the motivation to continue to fight your battles, for the Lord is on your side. And, most of all, I agree with looking for what the prophets are saying to YOU. And then reach out to others and share your love and your testimony of the truth.

    Thanks for your comment. Welcome to (Gay) Mormon Guy.
