Oh how much I love the scriptures! They are so amazing!

I have a hard time deciding which ones are my favorite ones! Today I was reading 2 Nephi 4! For today, this is my favorite chapter! I'll share with you bits and pieces of it that make me LOVE it so much and that have helped me so much! I feel this way!
Ok so just a little background here... In this chapter Lehi has just passed away in the wilderness after giving a blessing to all of his children to try and save them and their children. Nephi is talking and he is basically bearing his testimony! I love it. Ok here it is...

verse 15-16: "my soul delighteth in the scriptures, and my heart pondereth them, and writeth them for the learning and the profit of my children. Behold, my soul delighteth in the things of the Lord: and my heart pondereth continually upon the things which I have seen and heard."
The reason why I love this part is because we can be exactly like Nephi. We can do the same thing by writting in our journal. They are like our own personal scripture that can help our children when we are gone. I personally love to write when something so amazing happens to me that strenghtens my testimony. If anyone read my journal they would know I have a testimony of this church and they would know what happened to me that helped me to gain this testimony. I hope one day someone reads it and is helped by it and it gives them courage to find out for themselves.
Anyways going on with Chapter 4 verses 19-20, 23, 28-30, 34-35:
"...I know in whom I have trusted. My God hath been my support; he hath led me through mine afflictions...Behold he hath heard my cry by day and he hath given me knowledge... Awake my soul! No longer droop in sin. Rejoice, O my heart, and give place no more for the enemy of my soul. Do not anger again because of mine enemies. do not slacken my strength because of mine afflictions. Rejoice, O my heart and cry unto the Lord, and say: O Lord, I will praise thee forever; yea, my soul will rejoice in thee, my God, and the rock of my salvation... O Lord, I have trusted in the and I will trust in thee forever.  I will not put my trust in the arm of the flesh; for I know that cursed is he that putteth his trust in the arm of flesh.  Yea, cursed is he that putteth his trust in man or maketh flesh his arm.  Yea, I know that God will give liberally to him that asketh.  Yea my God will give me, if I ask not amiss; therefore I will cry unot thee my God, the rock of my righeousness.  Behold, my voice shall forever ascend up unto thee, my rock and mine everlasting God. Amen."
I love these scriptures!  Nephi talks much more about how specifically the Lord has helped him and how he wants to do better.  Those parts are amazing as well, I would suggest to anyone to read that whole chapter.  The only reason I cut them out is because this is how I feel.  I can add my own afflictions in those spaces and I would feel the exact same way.  I just wanted to apply them to me specifically.  The scriptures are great that way everyone can get something from them to help you.  The first time I read this scripture I was way stressed out about money and how I was going to pay for my school books and bills.  I read this scripture and it brought me peace and I knew all I had to do was trust in the Lord and do my best.  Everything is possible with him.  The very next day I got a check in the mail for just enough to cover what I needed!  It was amazing!  I will never doubt him again!
