Well, I'm not military, but that is kinda the best way to describe how i feel right now. I am doing something i have never done before as a missionary, and my first time in bringing someone to the waters of baptism really was a rush!! I was nervous, I didn't want to mess anything up, I was happy, I was scared, and I felt like I was going to pass out for a few moments. However just like in the movie, a few minutes go by, or for me it was a few days, and then everything is normal again. Nice and pleasant where I know what I need to be doing and can do so with confidence. This is one way that the Lord prepares us for future trials in life. He gives us a taste and when we handle it well we prove that He can trust us. He then trusts us with a little more next the time.
line upon line, line upon line;
here a little, and there a little"
-- Isaiah 28:10
I will give unto the children of men line upon line,
precept upon precept,
here a little and there a little;
and blessed are those who hearken unto my precepts,
and lend an ear unto my counsel,
for they shall learn wisdom;
for unto him that receiveth
I will give more"
-- 2 Nephi 28:30
