2 Nephi 32:5

"For behold, again I say unto you that if ye will enter in by the way, and receive the Holy Ghost, it will show unto you all things what ye should do."
2 Nephi 32:5

I love this promise of guidance.  ALL things.  That's pretty amazing.  I think that it is easy to feel lost or directionless in life, and I think that this verse shows us that the solution is always to look to God.  To trust the Holy Ghost to help us.  It doesn't mean that we don't need to study things out in our minds, or that we shouldn't be anxiously engaged in finding good things to do... I think that God wants us to try to solve things ourselves.  Then, if we can't, He will step in.  But I think that the verse does mean that God will be there, helping us, during all of it, even the figuring it out ourselves part.  The Holy Ghost helps us to remember things and blesses us with insight along the way.  Our main challenge in being able to use this amazing blessing in our lives is living worthy to have the Holy Ghost with us as a constant companion.  Today, let's remove whatever is standing in the way of our relationship with God.  And let's go to him in prayer.  Let's tell him the things that are going on with us.  Let's ask him the questions that are on our minds.  And then let's go to work, trying to figure it all out.  He will help us figure it out.
