i'm sure we've all had those moments in our lives where it seems like, despite your best efforts, things aren't going quite the way you'd want them. they aren't bad, but you're note where you'd like to be.
it's during those times that you think to yourself, "i'm doing all the right things: reading my scriptures, attending the temple, daily sincere prayer, trying to be Christ-like, etc. so why is it that i'm still missing those things for which i pray so intently- the things that are what i desire most out of life, but never seem to have."
i guess what i'm asking is this: what do you guys do to really work towards obtaining your faithful desires? how do you stay from getting discouraged? because i feel like i'm doing the best i can and then some, but i must be needing to improve something. any and all tips and advice are welcome.
