Hello Family and Friends,
Had a pretty good one this Week…got to go on a couple of exchanges so that was a blast. Spent a lot of time in Solvang so that is always a blast! Got to play some ball with some more old guys this past Wednesday so that's always fun! Just feel really bad for 'em ya know;)
Marcy is doing well, but she is still very ill! Her date is for July 8th so pray that she will make that, and get better! We nick named her "Grandma" because she reminds us both of ours! I love her so much, and am really going to miss her. Found a couple new potentials as well so that is exciting.
My thought for you all this week is in Psalms 103:11
11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
We learn here that Heaven is far away. A long ways from where any of us are. But we also learn here that The Savior's Mercy bridges the Gap between us and Eternal life. But first we must "Fear him." Recognize that He is. To be this means Humility. Which has been Elder Judd's achilles heel for a very long time. I bear testimony, and solemn witness of the Power that can come into one’s life through the infinite Grace and Mercy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. But that it is heavily dependent on both our desire, and Capacity to "Fear him." And I believe this "Fear" is a very personal thing. It is not enough to be good. You need to be great. And how you make that Leap comes from Humility. Not from elevating your position by comparing your personal Spiritual Stamina with others. But from "Fearing"...
I love you all!
Love, Elder Judd
