Elder Hancock asked me to write a post for this blog. At first I wasn't really sure what I'd write... He asked me to write on something that has been on my mind recently. Instantly one thought popped in my mind. For me at least this is always on my mind. What is the point of this life? Usually I don't get so philosophical when I ask myself this. Usually in the moment it's more what's the point of this (whatever I happen to be doing)?
Eventually there came a point I realized there was a God and began to develop a relationship with him. It didn't radically change my life. I was a good guy before I knew God. I still worked my job that I didn't exactly love some days. I still had good times and bad times with people around me. I still had days that everything went wrong. One thing did change, and this one thing changed everything. My perspective on it all changed. I saw it in a new light.
