In Episode #38 with Amy Rasmussen we talked about “matchstick moments”. Today we are going to dive a little bit deeper into this concept and what it means for you.
I want you to close your eyes and picture yourself in a pitch dark room. Maybe a cellar of some sort? No windows. It’s dark. You cannot see anything. Then behind you comes a light. Maybe a candle, a match, a flashlight even. Our lives our often like this. We have those times of feeling underwater and overwhelmed. Then someone shows up at the door with your favorite drink, or treat, or just a hug. A matchstick moment is when light shows up in your life.
The trick with these matchstick moments is that you can create them. When you have the tools to know that you can find light in the darkness, you can begin to see them and create them. Know those times when you are struggling – are you doing the things that bring you hope in your life? Have you forgotten to take care of yourself? Dive deep into what is happening, in order to know how to bring light into your own life, or the lives of those around you.
Elder Brian K. Taylor said, “As we follow the examples of the Savior and the Prophet Joseph in earnestly seeking God, we will come to understand in a very real way… that our Father knows us by name, that we are His children. To mothers, especially young mothers, who often feel overwhelmed and underwater while striving to raise “a sin-resistant generation,” never underestimate your central role in God’s plan. In stressful moments—perhaps when you are chasing little ones and a charred smell from the kitchen informs you that your lovingly prepared dinner is now a burnt offering—know that God sanctifies your most difficult days. “Fear thou not; for I am with thee,” He peacefully reassures.”
