Alma Chapter 29

Alma desires to cry repentance with angelic zeal—The Lord grants teachers for all nations—Alma glories in the Lord’s work and in the success of Ammon and his brethren.

I love this chapter because of Alma's joy, appreciation and over all positivity. My favorite passage is in verse 9. "... yes, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy."

It reminds me of that song "If it so be that ye should labor all your days..." you know the one I'm talking about? How great shall be your joy!

This joy that Alma is experiencing is unlike any joy the world encourages or understands. It is a pure and unselfish joy. It is the joy that comes from knowledge of the Plan of Happiness, seeing the fruits of your labors and those of whom you care about. It is an indescribable joy.

Oh, how I want to experience that joy!
