Heavens Have Opened Up

A few weeks ago I had a discussion with a close friend of mine about how we both came to know for ourselves the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Book of Mormon. We both came from different backgrounds; I grew up in the Church and she only recently came to know of this three years ago, and yet we both have experienced the same divine power of God touching our hearts to reveal truth to us. 
It really is such a gift to have a personal testimony. A testimony is the assurance of the reality, truth, and goodness of God through personal confirmation by the Holy Ghost. 
In James 1:5 it reads "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." What an incredible promise from our Heavenly Father, that we can receive wisdom directly from him.

After describing our experiences, my friend and I came to the conclusion that the spirit feels like a whole lot of love that cant fit into your heart and causes it to beat really fast, gives us goosebumps and sometimes overwhelms us so much that it makes you cry. It is something that is individual to each of us. But when that moment happens, where God opens the heavens up to us and communicates to us through the spirit, we can't deny it. We just know. 
Heaven's Opened Up - Jenna Walmsley
Verse 1
Its like you're running through a maze
No chance you'll ever find the way
And you're wondering which way to turn
Away from what was in the past 
Move on to better safer lands
You've gained momentum
So why don't you just take one giant leap forward

This is what you have been waiting,
Searching praying, hoping for your whole life
It's the moment when the broken
Is mended and healed and the light finally enters in
Remember the love the love that you felt
When the heavens opened up on you

Verse 2
Years down the line you're still the same
You've got no one here left to blame
And the choice is laid before
You're ready now to take a chance
You're never gonna turn your back
On what you've come to
Know that you can trust whats in your heart

When the times right and you feel like
Its the day you'll turn it over
Then the questions, turn to answers 
And you feel it, then you feel it.
