Come unto Him, Patriarchal Blessing, Scripture Study

Insight into your Patriarchal Blessing

Patriarchal Blessings are sacred personal blessings between you and your Heavenly Father and should only be shared with Family. That being said, I thought I would share some insights I gained by looking at my blessing in a different light.

I transcribed my blessing into a separate document that I can take notes on and do some highlighting.

I then proceeded on the copy, to highlight different types of text in the blessing. My blessing listed gifts of the spirit. I highlighted this in blue. I then highlighted all specific blessings that were mentioned in green. Any part that instructs me to do something, is a responsibility, etc; I highlighted those items that I had some action on my part in orange. Warnings could then be in red.

I suggest to take notes on the copy. Do searches on key points of your blessing against the scriptures and general conference talks to gain a better understanding of those points.

Review your blessing often. Document in your journal or on the copy, specific events that came to pass or that are impressed upon you.

As we take time to study the scriptures, are we doing so just because it is a habit? Are we trying to improve our scripture study, to make it a habit? Would the Lord turn to us and ask, “Am I just a habit?” Are we building a personal relationship with our Savior?
