We should all be like Nephi!

Hello everyone!!!

So this week has been crazy we had 16 lessons and that's way good because it has been raining here so I'm happy for that. Not a lot of cool things this week but we had a zone meeting and our mission President wants us to be more obedient. So actually I was reading a talk about obedience, and one of the things it said is “that as missionaries we tend to change our behavior not our nature” and our behavior way of thinking is that you do it because YOU HAVE to wake up at 6:30 am every day or we do it because it's a rule. If we don’t change our behavior we will go home the same person we were before the mission, but when we change our nature we will want to do it because we love the lord. And it becomes part of who we are. Pretty much giving you're all to the lord. I was thinking about that throughout this week and how it's important to do the small and simple things like obey the rules, it's so simple and like he says if we do it the lord blesses us more. I want more blessings. To me is as simple as this "keeping the commandments "the lord tells us simply to keep them. President Monson said God’s commandments or (MISSION RULES) are not given to frustrate us or to become obstacles to our happiness. Just the opposite is true. He who created us and who loves us perfectly knows just how we need to live our lives in order to obtain the greatest happiness possible. He has provided us with guidelines which, if we follow them, will see us safely through this often treacherous mortal journey. And He understands that when we keep the commandments (MISSION RULES) our lives will be happier, more fulfilling, and less complicated. Our challenges and problems will be easier to bear, and we will receive His promised blessings. But while He gives us laws and commandments, He also allows us to choose whether to accept them or to reject them. Our decisions in this regard will determine our destiny. In order to see the baptisms we need to obey the rules and another key that he gives us is faith, without faith we cannot see the help of the lord. We cannot expect the lord to bless us if we don't have faith and act I know as we keep the commandments, the Lords promise is that we will have eternal life and our lives will be better and happier.  We should all be like Nephi when he said. "I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them. I know as we do obey the small and simple rules and commandments we will feel Gods love and we will become more like his son Jesus Christ. Have
a great week y'all.
