Strength in Numbers

I have a testimony of the Law of the Fast. Today was "Fast Sunday" in our little branch, as next week will be Stake Conference.  Last night, my husband and I gathered those of our children who are old enough to fast in our room, and started our fast together. I love that.

I also love sitting in Sacrament meeting on Fast Sunday and listening to the testimonies of others, hearing them declare what they know and why they believe. It strengthens me so much. Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend the baptism of a dear friend, and I also had the opportunity to bear my own testimony concerning baptism and our Heavenly Father's plan for us to return to Him.

There is no substitute for the feeling of shared testimony. There is no replacement of the strength I draw from the fellowship of the saints. Truly, there is strength in numbers. I am grateful for my little spot among the followers of Christ. I am grateful for the chance to witness for Him, and to be uplifted by the witness of others.

What have you been blessed with today?

  1. hearing testimonies is my favorite part of church. I look at all the people and listen to their experiences and feelings and just know that I am in the right place.
