Day 1 of "Light The World"

Hey peeps!

Today is the first day of the most beautiful and the last month of the year. I have decided to share with you, my husband and I's 25 days of service/challenge. I will try to do a post every day and I hope you guys like it. Click here if you need any other ideas of what to do each day till Christmas.

As today the date is December 1st and it is the Worldwide Day of Service, I looked at some ideas on the link above of what could we do and we decided to go with sharing on social media when prayer helped us carry a burden. 

Jesus Lifted Others' Burdens and So can You!

I want you all to know that I KNOW that prayer is the best way to communicate with our Heavenly Father. Like I said in my first blog post, I moved in US 10 months ago. I left my family to come here and get a better education and create my own family. I still remember the last day I was in Albania and my mom was with me at the airport. When I hugged her, I felt like I was going to spend a night at my friends house or something like that, but never thought that I wouldn't be able to get her hugs every morning, and her advice. When I was on the plane, all I was thinking was if it was all worth it?!
10 months here away from my family has made a huge difference in my life, and has probably affected me the most. There are uncountable nights I have spent crying just because I miss them so much! Not only that, but I have felt like I betrayed my dad for not going to his grave for so long. Buuut... let me tell something to you. I have prayed for spiritual calmness and I have felt that I am never alone. Besides my lovely husband, I have a lovely Heavenly Father that takes care of me. He is there for me all the time. Through prayers I have received a great and endless comfort that has led me to the understanding that even though I am away from them, they love me and I love them. Families are together Forever!  I have a strong testimony that I wouldn't be where I am if it wasn't for praying to God. In one of the hymns at church there is this awesome verse that touches my heart and I truly believe it " Prayer can change the night to day!". Prayer is something we can all do, regardless of our religious, and it can have an immediate impact in our lives.

Seth posted on his social media:

I get seizures... a lot more than I would like. The only thing that can get me through them is having faith in Christ and in his atonement. Without that... I would be Lost. Thankfully this medicine helps out a lot. But even with this medicine, it is still a heavy burden to carry at times for me and my wife @teateaa_ . Between the seizures being as scary as they are and the physical and mental pain that comes with them, sometimes they seem almost unbearable. I know I wouldn't be able to if it were not for a much better medicine than the one in this bottle... prayer. God , Our Father in Heaven, loves us and wants to help us and talk to us and all we have to do is choose to talk to him through prayer. We can all receive the help we need to make our burdens lighter through prayer and Faith in Christ. I have seen it in my life and know it to be true and I know with a surety that everyone else can too as the door is wide open. Please try it out I promise that it's worth it. #lighttheworld#heavyburdens #iamamormon #seizures
