Some recent examples of the Spirit’s guidance on the web:
If you’ll remember, since I arrived I have told you that the California Fresno Mission is uniquely situated and qualified to lead the way and demonstrate how the Lord wants a Mission to be. If we will stick with these fundamentals and be constant and vigilant in our Exact Obedience, I know without a shadow of a doubt we will be this model Mission. And I know that by doing so our baptisms will soar, even well above 100/month. I want to bear you my testimony of this for I absolutely know it is true as the Spirit has borne witness to me of these principles. It is a great day to be a Missionary in the California Fresno Mission!!!!
The bishop replied, according to Dawson,
The Spirit is telling me to tell you not to use those documents.
Whether one should enter a beauty pageant:
I didn’t get into this pageant because I wanted to. It actually was an opportunity that I felt like, by the Spirit, Heavenly Father wanted me to take.
When I was prompted by the Spirit to post my profile, I knew that I had to let go of my fears and trust God. When I pressed send to submit my profile, it was a freeing, hopeful, and happy moment! I felt as if a weight had been lifted from my shoulders as I shook off the fear and followed God. I have encountered opposition, but I have never denied the promptings that came to me.
To sum up, the Spirit is quite a guy and if we listen to it we will be doing things the Lord’s way. Either that or Mormons have a hard time just owning their sh*t.
