Last night I was very impressed by President Nelson’s address to the YSA, and in particular by the blessing he pronounced on the young adult members of the church. I typed up his words below:
My beloved brothers and sisters, you were born to be “true millennials.” You are a chosen generation, fore-determined by God to do a remarkable work, to help prepare the people of this world for the second coming of the Lord.
Now, as an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, I bless each one of you as though I had my hands upon your heads, with the ability to become the true millennial you were born to be. I bless you to have the desire and ability to learn your true identity and purpose, that you will expect and prepare to do impossible things, that you will be undaunted in your efforts to learn how to access the powers of heaven, to help you solve your problems and answer your questions; and I bless you to follow the prophets with exactness, to feel peace in your heart as you do so.
I bless you to know and feel how much the Lord loves you and how much confidence He has in you.
I’m inspired by Pres. Nelson’s confidence in me (my HWN today)! And I want to live up to these blessings he extended! :)
