Henry B. Eyring learned this lesson by faithfully keeping a daily journal for many years:
Before I would write, I would ponder this question: “Have I seen the hand of God reaching out to touch us or our children or our family today?” As I kept at it, something began to happen. As I would cast my mind over the day, I would see evidence of what God had done for one of us that I had not recognized in the busy moments of the day. As that happened, and it happened often, I realized that trying to remember had allowed God to show me what He had done (“O Remember, Remember,” General Conference, October 2007).
Today, as I write in my journal, I will take the time to ask the same question: “How has the Lord blessed me today.” I will remember the admonition of Jesus to the Nephites, and I will make a record of His blessings in my life.
