“If you want to talk to God, pray. If you want him to talk to you, read your scriptures.”― Richard G. Scott
I love this quote. I had heard it before, but my brother-in-law used it the other day and it really struck me how true it is. Some people seem to get answers to their prayers even as they are speaking the words. That has rarely been the case for me. My answers tend to come as impressions at a later time. One thing that has helped me greatly is to read the scriptures. Thoughts come to my mind as I read the scriptures that enlighten and expand my knowledge. I am able to reflect on the ways the Lord has blessed me and recognize how He has directed my paths for good.
