Bucket Filler



Now that you are starting to get physically prepared, starting thinking about this. How prepared are you spiritually. I know I have room for improvement in this department. Do you take time for scripture study everyday? Do you spent a little time on your knees in prayer everyday?


I love the primary song, "If the Savior Stood Beside me." Read the words, and think about it.
If the Savior stood beside me, would I do the things I do?
Would I think of His commandments and try harder to be true?
Would I follow His example? Would I live more righteously,
If I could see the Savior standing nigh, watching over me?

If the Savior stood beside me, would I say the things I say?
Would my words be true and kind if He were never far away?
Would I try to share the gospel? Would I speak more reverently
If I could see the Savior standing nigh, watching over me?

If the Savior stood beside me, would my thoughts be clean and pure?
Would His presence give me strength and hope, and courage to endure?
Would His counsel guide my actions? Would I choose more worthily
If I could see the Savior standing nigh, watching over me?

He is always near me, though I do not see Him there
And because He loves me dearly, I am in His watchful care
So I'll be the kind of person that I know I'd like to be
If I could see the Savior standing nigh, watching over me.


If Jesus were to walk into your home right now, would you do the things you do? Would you say the things you say?

What would you do different if the Savior stood beside you? Start thinking about your actions in that light. And start acting He is beside you.

Doing so will prepare you to be more like Him, and to enter into His presence. And the Spirit will be with you, helping you along.

I love your bucket fillers, especially this one I have learned so much about my savior this year, and I love knowing that he is standing beside me.
