i have had a ton on my mind lately: it has to do with the future. i whole-heartedly believe that the past should be in the past & we should not dwell. as well as we not look too far into the future. however, gazing toward the future every once in awhile is important to me.i was talking to my friend natalie the other day & couldn't help but think a little bit about how evil the world is becoming. after the boston marathon bombing, i couldn't help but think..."this world is just getting worse." think about it. there is something tragic that happens every few months. bad things have always happened. but nothing like this! there is no doubt good in the world. i mean, you can take a gander at all the good around you, and there's countless acts of kindness. however, the world is still getting worse. more & more are falling.
a few days ago, mr. schroeder were talking about how the future is going to be hard. really hard. for many many reasons. i truly believe that so many things are going to be happening & that everyone, everyone, must be ready. i think we need to prepare ourselves for the worse. we must pray. we must develop a solid testimony & faith of jesus christ. preparation is key.
it makes me grateful for the opportunity to be where i am at in my life! i am grateful for supportive parents. & as crazy happenings keep coming up in my life, i am so blessed & thankful to know that i have mr. schroeder to guide me when my faith could be shaken a little bit. i suppose it's just a reminder that the times are comin. & we must be prepared for the worse.
