This week’s BYU-Idaho devotional speaker talked about how we can make ourselves enough with the help of Jesus Christ. 

Pat Saurey is the online scheduling coordinator for BYU-Idaho. During her devotional, she talked about how we can often feel that we are never enough. She said the Savior is aware of our needs and we are enough.  

“Even though we are enough with the Savior’s help, that doesn’t mean we should be content with where we are at,” she said. 

She shared seven suggestions for making ourselves enough with Christ’s help. First, take a step back.  

“Rather than focusing on what we can’t do, look at what we can do and how far we have come,” she said. 

Second, set goals. Saurey said we should set goals that require effort, and ones we feel comfortable trying to accomplish.  

For her third suggestion, serve and lift others. She challenged students to look for people who need to be loved. 

Fourth, work on family history. Elder Dale G. Renlund of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said we will not only be blessed with protection for doing temple and family history work, but also power to change, repent and learn. 

Fifth, keep your covenants.  

“Keep your covenants with more exactness than ever before,” Saurey said, “and then ask for angels to help you with whatever you need.” 

Sixth, seek out your gifts. Saurey said we all have been given gifts from Heavenly Father. Some of them might be less conspicuous, like the gifts of asking, listening and being able to weep. 

Saurey’s last suggestion is to recognize the hand of the Lord. She recommended we look for miracles in our lives and write them down to see how the Lord blesses us each day. 

The main thing Saurey hopes BYU-Idaho students take away from her talk is for them to “know that they are enough,” she said in an interview with BYU-Idaho Radio. “I want them all to know that they’re a child of God and that they are special and that they are enough.”
