Hallelujah! I can't think of a better word to describe this Easter season. After 15 months of job hunting (6 of them back in Utah without a job)- which included hundreds upon hundreds of applications, some interviews and hundreds of rejections- I got a job. In fact, I have been blessed with two jobs. I have been so humbled and am so grateful.

I know it is only because of my Savior's grace and mercy. I am weak on my own. I am nothing on my own. I have come to know my Savior more intimately the past few months. I have felt alone and rejected. I have come to know that He knows my pain. He knows what it is like to want so badly to know the Father's will and then be blessed to have courage to accept it.

I know He lives. The following words have meant a lot to me:

He lives to grant me rich supply.
He lives to guide me with his eye.
He lives to comfort me when faint.
He lives to hear my soul's complaint.
He lives to silence all my fears.
He lives to wipe away my tears.
He lives to calm my troubled heart.
He lives all blessings to impart
(From the hymn, "I Know That My Redeemer Lives.") 

 Christ is real. He is my friend. The enabling power of the atonement is real. I'm so grateful for all He has done and continues to do for me.
