th Matthew 4:4 As of late I have had a real struggle finding time to read my scriptures and apply the verses into my life. With my busy school schedule and work schedule I have had a hard time finding a good time to do my scripture study. I decided on this scripture because it reminds me of the scripture in 2 nd Nephi 32:3 which is one of my favorite scriptures.

I was so grateful for the lord in reassuring that my decision to study the scriptures was a right one and that not only my spirituality would increase but my school studies as well.
