This last weekend I got to visit the middle of nowhere. Okay, really, I got to visit Arizona. But that’s basically the same thing, right?
My cousin (and absolute best friend) served a mission (for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) in Scottsdale, Arizona. He has been back for about two years, and decided it was time to go back and visit all of his old friends; I had the honor of chauffeuring! For the first day and a half, we stayed in civilization, but by day two, we were in the middle of nowhere. Dirt. Bushes. That’s all that existed there. But I loved it.
The people I got to meet there were absolutely incredible. They were some of the most down-to-earth people I have ever had the privilege of meeting. Their spirits touched my life, and I will never forget the love I felt from God during my time visiting. God truly does love all of His children.
I love this picture of “Jesus.” It makes me think of life. At times we may feel that we are in the middle of nowhere. We may feel like we are not progressing, or that life has nothing to offer. We may feel as though we are stuck in a desert with nowhere to go. But is that really true?
Jesus Christ is the Way. He is the One who has made it possible for us to become better people. He is our Brother, and loves us more than we will ever know. It is because of Him that we can experience joy. It is because of Him that we can heal from pain. He is the Great Jehovah. He is the Light and the Way. And I am so thankful for Him. Don’t forget about Jesus Christ, because He will never forget about you.
Thanks to my cousin who dragged me into the middle of nowhere so that I could remember Jesus.
