Dont Flood Yourself Out.

Well the past few days have been pretty rainy here in Glendive. So much that the Yellowstone River is starting to get a little on the full side. Peoples basements are starting to fill with water due to the rising water table. We heard of someone that has lived here for over thirty years and never had their basement flood and it did this past week. Many of the people, that the excess water is affecting, had little or no warning signs of the damage.  Just like with our own lives. Many times we go on with our everyday routines and think nothing of some of the thoughts and actions we do. We just blame it on "that's who I am". However, "if ye do not watch yourselves, and your thoughts, and your words, and your deeds, and observe the commandments of God" things might not turn out so well for us. When we allow Satan to enter in a little bit at a time, most of the time not even realizing it, we trap our selves in his misery and heartache.  In 2 Nephi 28:21, Nephi tells how Satan will do this. "And others will he pacify, and lull them away into carnal security, that they will say: All is well in Zion; yea, Zion prospereth, all is well—and thus the devil cheateth their souls, and leadeth them away carefully down to hell."
Might we all be carefull enough to remember to do the things that God wants us to do so that we can remain focused on what really matters in the eternal scheme of life. But no matter what happens how far we sink. We can always return to our loving Heavenly Father. As we excersize our faith in Jesus Christ and keep his comandments we protect our selves from the possible damage.
