The Temple - Holiness to the Lord, The House of the Lord
I love the temple! I am priveledged to be an Ordinance Worker in the Reno Temple. I count this is a great blessing in my life. I will honestly admit that I find greater joy in serving as a worker than in serving as a patron. I'm not sure why that is, but for me, it's the simple truth. There is immense power in being an instrument for the Lord by helping others by performing the ordinances therein. The power and work done in the Lords House is truely sacred.
I work on thursday mornings, a shift that many think is crazy because you have to be there by 445am. For me, its the greatest shift ever. I love the people that I work with... they are loving, kind, and strive diligently to help all those who come to the Temple feel comfortable, welcome, and have the greatest Temple experience possible. This is a duty of Temple Workers. I had worked last week, but had missed the week prior... so when I was on the shift last Thursday and heard that the Temple would be closed for matinence for the next two weeks, it really took me by surprise. I was wondering how I was going to get along without the spiritual help that comes from going to the Temple so regularly. It actually made me a bit afraid to go forward with the next two weeks. And I have to admit, that this past week, I've felt a little lost without my Temple experience.
I just want to share with you how important the Temple is in our lives. The power there is very real... and necessary to help us become perfected. We need Temple and our ancestors need the Temple. I testify to you that the fact that we have Temples all over the Earth witnesses that our Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ love us deeply and yearn for us to return to their presence and partake of eternal life and exaltation with them. Go to the House of the Lord, feel of our Saviors love, and find the peace that cannot be found out in the world.
I am a Hoosier girl living in Reno, NV. I LOVE and LIVE the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Here are a few other things about myself: The only part of the Sunday Paper I read is the Funnies, I hate cleaning, but Love to clean when listening to Prarie Home Companion, Heavenly Father speaks to me through Fortune Cookies, I am a sucker for a love story, my favorite part of a movie is when the couple kiss for the first time at the end.
Behold now, I do not say that these things shall be, of myself, because it is not of myself that I know these things; but behold, I know that these things are true because the Lord God has made them known unto me, therefore I testify that they shall be.
