a trial and a burden

at this exact moment..
i am feeling blessed.

i have lived a remarkable life. 
a few struggles,
but nothing real major.
i have never experienced the loss of a parent or sibling.
but i have lost a few friends.
thus far, 
i have felt my life is a good one.

do you ever hear a talk, story, or speech
that touched you in a way allowing you to think,
"this was made and written for me."
at church last sunday,
we read through 3rd nephi chapter 17.
it talked of healing the sick of the righteous.
then it hit me. 
if i put my faith and trust in God,
i can be healed, too. 

for the past few weeks, 
an overwhelming trial has sneaked up on me.
i still don't know how i will make it through.
i received a comforting hug from my mom as she said, 
"this is your trial. it's a test to see how you get through." 

i am literally tearing up right now. 
i am not gonna cry. 

life is tossing me around like a crowd surfer at a heavy metal concert.
but whatever curve-ball life throws me..
i will hit a home run.

i am okay.
i don't want sympathy.
i just want to get my thoughts out there.
i will be okay.
and through this gospel,
i know that i will never be given anything i can't handle.
