I wonder...

I was listening to this song: When God Made You. Yes, it's a love song, but I started thinking about the part where it says, "I wonder what God was thinking when He created you."

I believe that I will add that to my list of questions for Him when I see Him face to face. "Heavenly Father, what were you thinking when you created me? What did you see me accomplishing? What were your dreams and hopes for me?" [and keep my fingers crossed I lived up to it.] 

Until then, I am happy to be trying to figure it out on my own by discovering new things about my capacity to do anything and everything while I'm alive. Example: today I found out that I have this need to tell people embarrassing things about me. There is not a single embarrassing moment in my life that has not been told to at least 4 other people. (those 4 being my immediate family so you know more people know.)

What do you think God was thinking when He created you?

*Very obviously it was something to do with your ability to touch and change other's lives. That's definitely part of it. I know we each have the innate ability to touch and change lives. How awesome is that!?


  1. :) Just discovered your blog via Mormon in Manhattan.

    I have a weakness for love songs like this one. *sigh*

    I wonder sometimes what God sees that I could do with my life that I don't see yet.

    Still, I often think that I got to choose the kind of person I would be here on earth, kind of similar to creating a sims character - but with more work.

    I think that we got to decide what our specializations and temperaments would be by working on them. I think we likewise get to make the choice of who we are and what we are like here (and the kind of person we will be in the next life).

  2. Thanks, both of you!

    I love what you said Fei. That is a really awesome way to look at it. I know we had a lot to say in the creation of the earth and such.

    We really do get to choose all that stuff with the gift of free agency! Heavenly Father sure is a smart fella, isn't he? ;)

    I'm glad you found my blog! I hope you enjoy reading it. :)

  3. Hi I love you very much and I hope that you're feeling better. I think you're amazing and I really look up to you. Thanks for being such a great example to me always. You are so strong and always trying hard to be right with Heavenly Father. You give the best hugs and your smile lights up the world. I miss you and I though I would just send you this little comment to add to your blog page. I wanted you to know how amazing you are. I love you.
