Aloha Hawaii

It's very rare to see me collage my pictures but I didn't wanna upload a bunch of pictures so I decided to take the smart way. These are some of the pictures during my first week in Hawaii. The week passes so quick that I don't even recall what I did few days ago. 

It's so hard to maintain my spiritual level compared to my mission life. I am grateful for my bishop and also some of the senior couple that I am still emailing on my mission. Bishop wants me to go to every church activities just like what Elder Schollenberger & Sister Schollenberger and Elder Riser & Sister Riser wanted me to do. Bishop wants me to read and pray daily. Bishop wants me to go temple as much as possible. Bishop wants me go on a date once a month. Bishop wants me to magnify my calling and do my home teaching. Bishop wants me to get a calling. Bishop wants me to come early to church just in case I needed to pass or bless the sacrament. I did not say no to any of those because I want to be able to put my Heavenly Father first and by doing all of these, I am proving that I put Him first. It took me some time to be convinced to go on a date until my bishop said so. I believe my bishop is always right because he is set apart by someone with an authority. 

At this point, I am still in the progress of organizing my life. I noticed how difference I was compared to back then. I noticed how much I wanted to get things done rather than procrastinating. I noticed I perform or act different and also think differently. I am very grateful for the change in me. 

First day of school was amazing. It definitely required a lot of determination, a lot of hard work and a lot of enduring. I do not ever believe that I do not have the ability to endure because I had endure 2 years on my mission and it had helped me now to face anything that is placed ahead of me. I believe I will be a lot busier sooner when more and more assignments are piling up and working in the PCC. 

Making a commitment with myself to attend every ward activities and put the Lord first!

I really am working really hard spiritually because I wanted a miracle to happen in my life so much. That is why I am dedicating all my time to do what is being told. It became more convinced when President Wheelwright, BYUH President shared Alma 37: 6 - 7 ; 40 - 41 ; 44 . It's just like an answer to my prayer.

It talks about by small and simple things are great things brought to pass. Small things include faith & diligence. Miracle only applies to those who have faith and does small and simple thing which eventually bring to pass a marvelous work.

I told my Heavenly Father that I am doing all of this but I want Him to promise me the miracle in return. And no matter what the result is, I will trust in Him because He knows what is best for me.

Some of the formula that he shared;

Faith & Diligence --> Daily Miracle --> Marvelous Work

Slothful --> Miracle Cease --> No progress on journey
