Faith

I've been trying to make a habit of working on Personal Progress a little each day, and today I was working on the value of Faith.
I was supposed to read a few scriptures, and one of them was Alma 32: 17-43. We're all familiar with the analogy "faith is like a little seed". But when I read it again today, it touched me more than it ever has before.

I especially love where it says in verse 28, "...behold, it will begin to swell within your breasts; and when you feel these swelling motions, ye will begin to say within yourselves - It must needs be that this is a good seed, or that the word is good, for it beginneth to enlighten my understanding, yea, it beginneth to be delicious to me."

I really like that because it really testifies to you that this is the only true church on this earth. We've all felt that swelling in our hearts, and that tells us that what we believe to be true...is true.
