You Get What You Need.

"No, you can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
And if you try sometime you find
You get what you need" Rolling Stones.
This might sound crazy but the Rolling Stones were spot on here. If you know me know me at all you know that random songs pop into my head at random times. Well, while I was studying the other day and reading out of the Book or Mormon in the book of Alma ch. 29:1-3, the Rolling Stones popped into my head. As you read this, picture how it applies in your life. 
"1 O that I were an angel, and could have the wish of mine heart, that I might go forth and speak with the trump of God, with a voice to shake the earth, and cry repentance unto every people!
Yea, I would declare unto every soul, as with the voice of thunder, repentance and the plan of redemption, that they should repent and come unto our God, that there might not be more sorrow upon all the face of the earth.
But behold, I am a man, and do sin in my wish; for I ought to be content with the things which the Lord hath allotted unto me." 
Even though this scripture was written over 2,000 years before the song was it still applies and it applies to us today as well. And it's true we cant always get what we want (meaning our desires) but if we try sometimes (meaning we do the will of the Lord) we'll get what we need (meaning the Lord knows us better then we know yourself) and he will provide for the things he knows we need even if we don't think we do at that time. The things he gives us will always turn out in our favor because he is a loving God and cares for us like a loving parent cares and wants to give the world to their children!  SO, keep trying because you will find "YOU GET WHAT YOU NEED".
