034 Small and Simple Things

The scriptures teach us that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass. This concept applies to living the gospel of Jesus Christ but also as we strive to manage our minds and seek joy. Living a joyful life does not require a huge, dramatic shift in our life but rather great changes are made through small, simple and intentional changes. Just because something is simple does not mean that it is not incredibly effective. It is easier to want the quick and easy fix; the big elaborate change that will solve all of our problems, but that is not the way our brain works. Heavenly Father has provided a pattern for us to follow for spiritual growth and we can apply that same pattern to joyful growth. Making the small and simple changes in our life is the way. Out of small things proceedeth that which is great.
