What has He done for you?

By recognizing the Lord’s hand in our life, we can better understand our purpose and we can assist others in finding theirs.  The answer to the above question will be vastly different for each of God’s children; we are blessed with individuality and we each live in a manner that will lead us to a range of different experiences. 

“It won’t be easy to remember. Living as we do with a veil over our eyes, we cannot remember what it was like to be with our Heavenly Father and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ, in the premortal world; nor can we see with our physical eyes or with reason alone the hand of God in our lives. Seeing such things takes the Holy Ghost. And it is not easy to be worthy of the Holy Ghost’s companionship in a wicked world.” –Henry B. Eyring

The Lord is always there.  We are given trials to grow, we experience tribulations, and sometimes our days are simply average.  No matter what the day or the attitude we have, the Lord is ever present, guiding us when we call upon him.  Because of His suffering, we receive blessings, many which we fail to comprehend.
“Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons.” – Deuteronomy 4:9
It is our responsibility to thank God  for our blessings, especially for the suffering of His son.  We should also record these special and frequent moments of aid, sacrifice, and guidance so that we can remind ourselves each day of the outpouring of help we receive by and through Him.  By noting His presence in our lives, we can be led to answer the even greater question:

What can you do for Him?
