Choose to Believe

By Ali Cross

You've heard the call.

The call that told you, you are a writer.

The dream that fills you and consumes you until you’ve put it to paper—and long afterward.

Do you believe you can respond to the call, fulfill the dream?

When the angel Gabriel told Mary she was to bear the song of God,

Mary said, “ . . . be it unto me according to thy word”
When Jesus said to the men of Galilee,

" . . . they straightway left their nets, and followed him” (Matt 4:18-20.)

Choose to follow the commandments of the Lord, to answer when he calls, to pursue our dreams.

“Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed” (D&C 123:17.)

You'll never know how often you say exactly what my soul needs to hear.

Yes, Ali. Thanks for that. It's sometimes hard to remember that this is a calling rather than a punishment. I believe.
