can ye feel so now?

Alma 5:26 - And now behold, I say unto you, my brethren, if ye have experienced a change of heart, and if ye have felt to sing the song of redeeming love, I would ask, can ye feel so now? 

If the Holy Ghost has prompted you to become better in your life,
Can ye feel so now? 

If you have felt Christ's love wash over you,
Can ye feel so now?

If you have felt the cleansing power of the Atonement, I ask,
Can ye feel so now?

Our lives are always changing. I am not the same person I was when I was in seventh grade, I'm not even the person I was last year, or last week, for that matter.
Sometimes we grow and become stronger, sometimes we regress, and sometimes things just change in other ways. Many changes aren't good or bad necessarily, they are just changes.
Life is always changing.

But one thing that should never change is your testimony. Your conviction and your knowledge of what is right should never waver.

Have you ever had a change of heart?
It wears off sometimes.

I mean, not to a downer, but it just does. Not always, I think all of us have experiences that change us and sometimes there is no going back.
But other times, well, it is hard to remember how the Spirit made you feel, or it is hard to remember why you decided to do what you did.

Think back on times that you felt the Spirit, times when your knowledge was sure.
Can ye feel so now?

Has Christ called upon you to sing the song of redeeming love? Have you felt those moments when you just want to shout from the rooftops: "Christ lives! He is Lord!"
Can ye feel so now?

Let us always be strong and faithful, remembering the times the Spirit has whispered the truth to us.
Keep your testimony strong always. 

Have a good week!

Thank you, Haley. I intend to share this post with many sons & daughters of our Heavenly Father who I know will be benefited and uplifted by this simple reminder. I don't EVER think I'll forget your testimony as you came back from EFY. You wanted to listen ONLY to church music, and to drench yourself in the scriptures. While the demands of daily life sometimes prevent us from being able to do all we would like to...USUALLY, with very little effort, we can remember, and we CAN "Feel So Now". Thanks for a timely reminder. You ROCK, sweet girl!
