A spiritual work
Begins on one’s knees
There’s guidance to seek
The Lord knows all needs

“As we serve in our councils and presidencies, we all constantly remind ourselves that ours is a spiritual work. While we do sit together in council meetings, our work begins on our knees as we seek the Lord’s guidance.”

—Neil L. Andersen, “A Spiritual Work

Reach every human heart
With what’s painted on your own
Love can teach and impart
What you wish to make known

“If you’re not a full-time missionary with a missionary badge pinned on your coat, now is the time to paint one on your heart- painted, as Paul said, ‘not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God.'” Elder Neil Andersen, April conference 2013“Do we begin again to commend ourselves? Or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you? Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshly tables of the heart.  And such trust we have through Christ to God-ward.” (II Corinthians 3:1-4, KJV)

( not just words- but spirit, not just something great to carry around, but to be such a part of you that life flows)

On a spiritual journey
The Lord guides our way
With love and light forming
Through each step we take

You Know Enough – general-conference

Our spiritual journey is the process of a lifetime. We do not know everything in the
beginning or even along the way. Our conversion comes step-by-step, line

Our baptisms were low
We looked where we could be strong
Our numbers to grow
Through reactivation’s song.

Where once we had been weak
Light touched those around
Who brings more in who seek
To know what they have found

We were having a terrible time having baptisms in our ward. They were very low, and we realized that the Lord would not bless us with new converts until we took care of the people in our ward that we already had.

A miracle comes
Not as we expect…
As God speaks to us,
His love we detect!

We wait upon the Lord, knowing that miracles will follow our faith.
Nephi said that he was “led by the Spirit, not knowing beforehand the things which [he] should do” (1 Nephi 4:6). This is the way of a disciple. We don’t always know what is ahead, but the Lord does, and as we trust in Him, He leads us by the hand, and His miracles follow. I love the Lord’s declaration, “I am a God of miracles; … and I work not among the children of men save it be according to their faith” (2 Nephi 27:23).

God won’t let us fail
When we wait upon Him
Have faith. All is well.
The heavens will open.

There’s been a big change in how much we love these people. We’re all in it together, and we’re a whole bunch of imperfect leaders. And the biggest difference is that we know it’s His work; He won’t let us fail if we do the best we can.

What greater gift for your birthday
Than to know so many care
To hear the words you say
And heed God’s words you share.
It is Elder Neil Anderson’s birthday!
