There were many talks that touched me deeply but one that truly struck a chord deep within my soul was Elder Jeffery R. Hollands talk. It was so very powerful.
In my car I have been listening to past General Conferences tapes and I heard Elder Holland talking about Peter and his great love for the Savior.
Elder Holland I believe, has a great love and appreciation for Peter.
Which now has inspired me to learn more about that great apostle.
In the talk, Elder Holland talked about the fear that came upon the disciples when they observed Christ walking upon the water towards them.
When Peter realized it was the Savior He immediately asked to come unto the Lord in which the Lord invited him to come.
"Impulsive Peter was immediately out of the boat and started walking on water towards His Lord." Impulsive struck me, because I too have an impulsive streak.
I am in hopes my impulsiveness is as great as Peter's.
Elder Holland continued that as long as Peter had his gaze fixed upon the Savior the raging waves around him did not scare him; but once he took his eyes of the Savior he started to fear and and then started to sink and then cried out to his Lord, "Save me."
The Savior immediately took his hand and lifted him up and then admonished him, "Why did you fear?"
There have been many times in my life when I have heard that same question and had that same cry.
But back to what I wanted to share.
After the Savior was crucified Elder Holland shared these thoughts:
We have a life of devoted discipleship to give in demonstrating our love of the Lord.
