Doubt not, fear not, be believing

Posted in faith, fear, sacrament thoughts by Tod Robbins on April 24, 2009

Some thoughts I wrote during last week’s sacrament service:

Fear not: look past it; gather fact, rally the family to the hearth, circle of kin knelt in prayer, outstretched hands, stand in holy places, look up, look and live

Be believing: kneel at the altar; raise hands in prayer; give liberally; serve all; sacrifice wants; see through spiritual eyes; leave prejudice; escape Babylon; love one another; create; produce; embrace light; observe all elements; take a slap; protect virtue; be a friend of God

    I followed your link from BCC to your other blog to this one. I was impressed that you take notes during sacrament meeting- I have been trying to do that too.

    Since you mentioned “kneel at the alter,” I’ll share a few recent thoughts that I had from our last gospel doctrine lesson. The reference was made to the sacrament table as an alter. Perhaps we can visualize ourselves approaching the altar and offering our broken hearts and contrite spirits as we partake the sacrament each week. What we “bring” and “give” to the ordinance of the sacrament determines what we “take” or “receive” from it…

    I agree with that Jim. Sacrament meetings can be very hard for me to pay attention in, but I think it mainly comes down to our offering not the Lord’s.
