Something hard to find...

Everything we do in this life whether its work, school, parenting and so forth, is always revised, looked over, criticized or maybe even put down.  Sometimes we feel inadequate, unworthy, unloved and no one cares!  What goes on in your life?  You're maybe that person that has no "Special Talent" or "Special Gift" as the world may see as something special in your life.  We all have these feelings one time or another in our lives.  Our message to you and everyone that sees themselves as being worthless or put down by the world is GOD DOES CARE, and HE LOVES YOU!!

This is one of my favorite talks by one of our church leaders, I hope you like.  :)  P.S. this is just a little part of it!!

The Love of God

By President Dieter F. Uchtdorf Second Counselor in the First Presidency
"Think of the purest, most all-consuming love you can imagine. Now multiply that love by an infinite amount—that is the measure of God’s love for you.
God does not look on the outward appearance. I believe that He doesn’t care one bit if we live in a castle or a cottage, if we are handsome or homely, if we are famous or forgotten. Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we are imperfect, He loves us perfectly. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God’s love encompasses us completely.
He loves us because He is filled with an infinite measure of holy, pure, and indescribable love. We are important to God not because of our résumé but because we are His children. He loves every one of us, even those who are flawed, rejected, awkward, sorrowful, or broken. God’s love is so great that He loves even the proud, the selfish, the arrogant, and the wicked.
What this means is that, regardless of our current state, there is hope for us. No matter our distress, no matter our sorrow, no matter our mistakes, our infinitely compassionate Heavenly Father desires that we draw near to Him so that He can draw near to you."

I know God loves each and everyone of us, no matter what color race, gender, age, talents or capability we have.  We can come closer to him by following his son Jesus Christ, and by keeping his simple suggestions he has given to us.  I love being a Missionary, unfortunately I am very new at this blogging activity. Still trying to figure everything out so if you have comments about how I can improve, let me know. :)
