The weather here in ålesund has been awful and both me and sister hornback agree it is the worst weather we have experienced in our entire lives. We have been soaking wet for the past three days friday saturday and sunday. Most of my thoughts are centered around the weather.
On Friday the weather was awful. The wind was blowing and sometimes it was hard to walk. As sister hornback and i were walking to an investigators house, the wind became calm but I recieved a prompting to link my arm with Sister Hornbacks, shorty thereafter the wind picked up. We walked together in a straight line, fighting against the winds blowing at us. We were a team, we were together. Our force connected was enough to withstand the storm and not be tossed to and fro by the strong winds. It reminded me of when Elder Bednar talked in our last conference of being yoked with the Saviour through our covenants. As I held tightly to sister hornback I realized that as I yoked myself to the saviour through my covenants, it doesnt matter how strong the winds blow. I would walk in a strong straight line to my destination, to my home. I was also reminded of the words of paul in ephesians 4:13-15
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
That we be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
