a song of power

For family night tonight, my mom gave a strong lesson on how Heavenly Father watches over us. Sometimes we feel He is not near us, when it really might be that we are far away from Him... With everything going on and and with every answer I'm trying to find to my prayers, this family night was led by the spirit and helped me so much. The hymn, Dearest Children, God is Near You, was read. Although, my name was replaced with the word "children." I want you to do the same... 

Dearest Ashlyn, God is near you,
Watching o’er you day and night,
And delights to own and bless you,
If you strive to do what’s right.
He will bless you, He will bless you,
If you put your trust in him.
Dearest Ashlyn, holy angels
Watch your actions night and day,
And they keep a faithful record
Of the good and bad you say.
Cherish virtue! Cherish virtue!
God will bless the pure in heart.
Ashlyn, God delights to teach you
By his Holy Spirit’s voice.
Quickly heed its holy promptings.
Day by day you’ll then rejoice.
Oh, prove faithful, Oh, prove faithful
To your God and Zion’s cause.

I know that Heavenly Father is there.. i know He is.
Sincerely, Ashlyn
