First off, the important stuff. How in the world is Duke doing? I heard that they were ranked third, which would be surprising except for the fact that they are the best team (currently third best). Where is UNC? 42nd?
Secondly, I have had a trial recently in recognizing spiritual promptings. I realized my mistake so clearly when I listened to a talk from Elder Bednar in Oct 2011. I had been receiving spiritual guidance and I didn't even know it (D&C 6). It was a big struggle because I thought I wasn't getting an answer to my prayers. My prayer was that I could KNOW that this gospel is true with all of the things that go with it instead of believing. I thought I was going to get a huge spiritual manifestation, but instead the Lord saw fit that I be taught from the time I was born line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little. I never realized that all this time I was growing in knowledge and testimony until I can now say that without a doubt I KNOW that Jesus Christ is my Lord. From my head to my toes, there is not an ounce of doubt. I did not need an angel and the Lord knew that. I could not have gained my testimony in any other way than he had me.
