The ability to put our will aside and follow Him is one of the greatest tests of this life that we are all taking part in. "For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father" (Mosiah 3:19 italics added). We must be willing to yield to the will of God by listening to the messages we receive from the Holy Spirit. Following the Lord is how we find enduring happiness. Forgoing temporary happiness is well worth the eternal peace and satisfaction that comes from obeying the will of the Lord.
I know that when the day of your next big decision comes that if you will turn to the Lord and do as He directs that you will find that you are in the right path. "Do what is right, let the consequence follow" is the counsel we should take in all our decisions (Do What is Right Hymn 237). Follow the Lord. Follow His plan. Have peace. I know He lives and that His plan is best. In His name, Jesus Christ. Amen.
