A Father in Heaven

September 28, 2016

In the last 5 days we have had a lot of work here in the office. We have been running around trying to get pisos closed and open new pisos. Life is good.

This morning we went to the temple. There was a stark contrast between the world and the temple that I have not noticed in a long time. Inside the temple is the opportunity to be reminded of who we are in relation to God. I am grateful to be His son and be able to feel of His Peace in the middle of a world that is filled with stress. I have been having difficulty with a landlord in one of our pisos and after some tense phone calls the afternoon before I loved entering into the temple where the world just slips away and perspective returns. We are children of our Father in Heaven who loves us. There is nothing that I am more sure of than that He is quite literally there and that He wants to be involved in our lives. In our District Meeting this week one of the Hermanas shared the idea that if we act in front of God, as in we aren´t honest in the way that we act or the way that we talk to Him He will be more than happy to sit and watch but when we invite Him to act through honest sincere prayer He will be an active participant in our lives.

I love you all and am grateful for you.
Elder Gustafson
