Well, there they are and there they go,
Of the requirements in life, on a scale of ten,
They came from the other side of the veil
Many talk themselves out of believing in God,
Now, me, on the other hand, Iím not the same.
Now that need has created a heavenly bond,
Only a few truly know that the Savior lives
Officer Samuel Jeppsen #3751 (Ret) R# 140, October 2002-gwww.LDSCOPS.com
Though Iím rough around the edges, not very polished., made my share of mistakes, perhaps more, my love for the Savior is unmatched. There are those who love Him as much, but there is none who love Him more. I donít think about Him from time to time, or when I pray. I can honestly say there is never a moment when He isnít on my mind. I donít pray daily or even morning and night; I pray all day long. There is never a time when I am not in a state of prayer.
Of all the blessings He has personally endowed me with, my greatest blessing is my inability to make it on my own. Life requires a certain level of ability to make it. Some people come in at 120, 130% or more of that mark. The everyday requirements, the struggles, etc. are easy for them. But I come in there at about 95 to 96%. Everyday, not having quite enough to make it. This inability has resulted in a tremendous need for the Lord in my life. This tremendous need, through many personal experiences, has turned into a sure knowledge that the Savior lives. If I know anything for an absolute certainty, I know this: He lives. And I know that He loves us and I know that He leads, guides and blesses those who love Him ...and seek Him.
