I hope you enjoyed General Conference. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you can find out more here.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, instead of energized by conference, may I suggest that you remember that the fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. (Galatians 5:22-23) Not overwhelm, guilt, defeat.
Sometimes in an effort to keep on improving, we can start to think of all of the places we’re lacking. Our brains see this as useful. If we feel really bad, we’ll start improving right?
Sometimes we do, but it’s not very long-lasting (longsuffering?). More motivating is seeing where we’re doing well and seeking personal revelation on where to improve.
Another thing I like to remind myself is that I’m receiving personal revelation for ME, not for everyone else at church, or in my family.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by conference, try asking Heavenly Father where you personally need to focus, instead of just gathering information from every good thing you heard.
Hope this helps!
