Sometimes in the middle of the night, when I’m awake and feeling really low spiritually or weary of my trials, I put my headphones in my ears and plug into my phone. I turn on general conference on my Gospel Library app and press play to listen to a talk, or I turn on the Mormon Channel and listen to music. (Click on the icons if you want to go to iTunes to learn more about these apps.)
The music or talks helps calm my heart and helps me feel the Spirit, like an IV drip helping me to have the strength to keep going.
I also get down on my knees and pray. I just tell Heavenly Father everything that is stressing me out. I need to do that more.
I am so thankful for these gifts from God to help me feel His love and Spirit even when things feel so challenging.
And in the middle of the night, life always feels more challenging than sometimes it really is once I get up and get going.
Happy Staying Spiritually Plugged In,
