Jordan's Triumph with God
Yesterday morning before church, my 8-year old son, Jordan came to me and told me this story:
I don't know what more I could add to Jordan's beautiful words… except that I am so grateful he knew to whom he could turn when his fears threatened to overpower his ability to find peace.
Satan is real. God is real. God and HIS followers will ALWAYS be triumphant.
The eventual triumph may not always seem obvious in the midst of the trial. In Jordan's young wisdom, he noticed the intensity of the storm increased the moment he started his prayer (or his fight against Satan). Also in his young wisdom, he knew to persist in that prayer until the Holy Ghost settled throughout his entire room… leaving no room for the adversary.
The Holy Ghost is truly a miraculous gift. Jordan recognized that same calming feeling from when his father placed his hands upon Jordan's head 7 months ago after his baptism. In that moment, by the power of the Holy Melchizedek Priesthood, my husband bestowed the Gift of the Holy Ghost upon Jordan. Jordan knew that gift was his.
