This is just a short thought. I was looking through the scriptures from seminary (a scripture study class for high school kids) and started with Moses 1:39. "For behold, this is my work and my glory, to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man." God is love. He spends a great deal of time and effort to help us come home to Him. Not only does He want us near Him, He wants us to be like Him, because He wants us to enjoy the happiness He experiences. This is His work and He loves it, because He loves us. His purpose is to bring about our eternal happiness, if we will accept it. I love that He takes the time to explain that to us through the scriptures and through prophets. Here he was talking to Moses, but the same message can be found throughout all the scriptures. I am so grateful to know that God lives, that He loves us, and that He speaks to all of us no matter when we live on the earth. He's there for us and we can pray to Him and receive answers personally. A lot of times those answers come as we study the words He's already revealed, as well as through thoughts and feelings. He speaks to all of us individually, if we ask. He does this because He wants to help us know who He is so we can become like Him. He is our Father and He always wants what is best for us.
