Nothing has meant more to me in this life than to know that I am not alone. I know that my Father in Heaven hears my prayers (silent and vocal) and answers them. Sometimes the answers come through something I read in the scriptures or from a friend, sometimes they are felt through the words of a hymn or song, oftimes they appear in the form of a thought or a feeling or a prompting.
As children of a loving God --- we are not left to figure things out alone. He has provided scriptures and revelation to help us in our day. He is aware of us, mindful of us and more interested in our well-being than we are. He is perfectly loving and merciful and kind and has not left us to walk the road alone.
