Devotional: Faith-Promoting Experiences Doing What God Doesn’t Want

My mission was difficult from the very beginning. While praying in the MTC, I received a definite answer that I should not go on this mission, but I disregarded the message and continued into the field. While in Texas, I struggled with the work and my decision until my final twenty-four hours. And only then did I finally come to feel I had made a good choice. I will focus on the events leading up to this final day, especially the feeling of peace I received and my discovery that God’s respect for our freedom is so great he will work even with our disobedience.
