All times, All things, All places

There have been many things that have affected my life in just these past couple weeks. And I do believe that a lot of these things are happening because every day, every week, I am getting closer and closer to putting in my mission call and going through the temple for the first time.
As I get closer and closer in pursuing my relationship with my Heavenly Father, I can just FEEL the temptations of the advesary trying to pull me down and put these doubts in my head.
Right now I am only about 3 weeks away from officially being able to put in my mission papers. The advesary is trying his hardest though and sometimes I feel that I give in to the doubt and in my prayers I just cry to my Heavenly Father and ask him to strengthen me in a way that the advesary can't touch me.
I know that if I am being the person my Father in Heaven wants me to be, a future Sister Missionary, at all times, all things, and all places that I will have such a strenth that the advesary will shrink and diminish in the light that I will hopefully hold.
I am trying my darnest to be the person I know I need to become in order to teach the wonderful people of who knows where the beautiful messages of the Gospel. That we have a Father in Heaven that loves us and knows each and everyone of us by name. That our brother Jesus Christ gave his life so that I may be forgiven and that I may have that chance to be with our Father. That as long as I have faith and I am doing the works, things, that I need to do in my life that I should not be fearful. How great of a message is this. And I am so grateful that I get to be this person at all times, all things, all places.
