Faith is a funny thing. It takes a long time to grow but it does not grow like a plant for me and probably not for most people. Mine is more like a child. It starts out small and then will have large growth spurts. My faith in God comes after a trial, most of the time. I will get pushed, shoved, cut, bruised, and scratched, then I will feel my loving Heavenly Father wrap his arms around me and remind me that he is watching and that I am NEVER forgotten.
Today I grew another inch. While singing "I Stand All Amazed" in sacrament meeting I was struggling to stay calm because I felt my Heavenly Father's love for me. I don't know how to describe it but I know there is nothing better than that feeling. As the song came to an end I decided to look around in my gospel doctrine app on my phone and came onto Jeffery R. Holland's talk "Lord, I Believe" from this last general conference. This is what I read that made an effect on me: "Honestly acknowledge your questions and your concerns, but first and forever fan the flame of your faith, because all things are possible to them that believe."
