Living the Gospel Brings Me Hope Because

This poem is my answer to Elder Soares’ request to “post your response to the question “Living the gospel brings me hope because…’ on social media” using the hashtag #YAface2face or #LDSdevo Seeing that this blog is the main social media I use, I decided to write a poem. These are some ways I feel like the restored gospel of Jesus Christ brings me hope.

Living the Gospel Brings Me Hope Becauseā€¦

Living the gospel
brings me hope
in the simple smiles around me.
Another child of God cares for me
and will fight with me to win an eternity of smiles.

Living the gospel
brings me hope
as fresh breezes in my soul
that lift my head and point me
to beyond the next horizon.

Living the gospel
brings me hope
when I slowly stop making mistakes
that I know God is helping me overcome.
Worthiness is a priceless feeling.

Living the gospel
brings me hope
because when I live His gospel,
I know the Spirit lives in me,
and I burn with answered prayers.
