Alma 26

Alma 26 is in the runnings to be my favorite chapter in all of scripture. It is seriously so beautiful. I hope that if you have a second to spare, you will take the time to read the entire thing (only 37 verses). I also hope that if you don't have a second to spare, you will make time to read it anyway. You will not regret it. Ammon expresses his love for his God. He glories in God's goodness and rejoices in His power. Just to give you a little taste, here are two of my favorite verses:

11 But Ammon said unto him: I do not boast in my own strength, nor in my own wisdom; but behold, my joy is full, yea, my heart is brim with joy, and I will rejoice in my God.
 12 Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.

  1. If you study the scriptures, only joy and peace can come. I love reading the Book of Mormon. Oh, and the rest of the scriptures, for that matter.
