Our own Liahona!!!

What can we do to return to our Father in Heaven? How can we know where to go and what to do? There is a story in the Book of Mormon about Lehi. Lehi was a prophet who took his family into the wilderness at the time Jerusalem was a bout to be destroyed. As they were traveling in the wilderness he went outside his tent and found a ball of curious workmanship with pointers that pointed the way that they should go. There were also things written from time to time on the ball. This ball was called the Liahona. Wouldn't it be awesome if we had a liahona to guide us today? I am here to tell you that we do have a liahona today. The liahona we have is the Prophet and the scriptures. The prophet tells us the things that our Heavenly Father wants us to do and so do the scriptures. Together they are our own personal liahona. The liahona didn't always work for Lehi and his family. It only worked according to the faith, diligence, and heed that they gave unto it. The same is true for us. If we don't have faith and are not diligent in heeding the things the prophet and scriptures tell us to do then they can not guide us back to Heavenly Father. We are so blessed to have a prophet today and the scritures to help us along the way as well. I hope that all of us will do our best to heed the things the scriptures and prophet tell us. I know that if we do, we will be guided back to our heavenly home, where we can have joy and rest from all our cares.
