The Lord is My Light

I'll be honest and say that going to church for the last little while has been hard. I've been tired and stressed, and even though I like 9 o'clock in the morning as a starting time, we've ended up with 9 o'clock for several years in a row now through moving and I'm kind of tired of it (yes I'll change my mind in January when we start at 1:00). We stayed out too late on Saturday and I just didn't feel like getting there yesterday morning. Then we got to the meeting late and found it was completely packed with visitors. I found us a few seats on the back row and we squeezed in. The first meeting was hot and uncomfortable, and then Sunday School was moderately successful except for the fact that I can't hold a Bible and a squirmy baby at the same time.

Besides the fact that the kids love Primary, I also mainly went because I like my job playing the piano for Relief Society. This week the opening song was "The Lord is My Light", and as I started playing, something completely changed inside me. Somewhere between the upbeat music, the touching words, and the beautiful harmonies of the women in my ward I found my heart softening. I truly felt that the Lord is my light and that He does lead me, even when I lose track of Him. I've known this in the past and my experiences have been powerful enough that I can't deny them. Right now I just need to get myself back on track and do a better job of looking to Him for guidance. Life is hard sometimes, but I know that when I take His hand, I will truly be led along.

The Lord is my light; the Lord is my strength.
I know in His might, I'll conquer at length.
My weakness in mercy he covers with power,
And, walking by faith, I am blest every hour.
The Lord is my light;
He is my joy and my song.
By day and by night, he leads
He leads me along.
