56 We are greatly blessed when we listen to and obey the promptings of the Holy Ghost.

57 Lets listen to how Heavenly Father blessed Bruce R. McConkie and his father because his father obeyed the promptings of the Holy Ghost:

58 One of my earliest childhood recollections is of riding a horse through an apple orchard. The horse was tame and well broken, and I felt at home in the saddle.

59 But one day something frightened my mount, and he bolted through the orchard. I was swept from the saddle by the overhanging limbs, and one leg slipped down through the stirrup.

60 This is a stirrup.

61 I desperately hung to an almost broken leather strap that a cowboy uses to tie a [rope] to his saddle.

62 My weight should have broken the strap, but somehow it held for the moment. Another lunge or two of the stampeding horse would have broken the strap or wrenched it from my hands and left me to be dragged to injury or death with my foot entangled in the stirrup.

63 Suddenly the horse stopped, and I became aware that someone was holding the bridle tightly and attempting to calm the quivering animal. Suddenly the horse stopped, and I became aware that someone was holding the bridle tightly and attempting to calm the quivering animal. Almost immediately I was snatched up into the arms of my father. Almost immediately I was snatched up into the arms of my father.

64 What had happened? What had happened? What had brought my father to my rescue in the split second before I slipped beneath the hoofs of my panic-driven horse? What had brought my father to my rescue in the split second before I slipped beneath the hoofs of my panic-driven horse?

65 My father had been sitting in the house reading the newspaper when the Spirit [the Holy Ghost] whispered to him, Run out into the orchard! My father had been sitting in the house reading the newspaper when the Spirit [the Holy Ghost] whispered to him, Run out into the orchard!

66 Without a moments hesitation, not waiting to learn why or for what reason, my father ran. Without a moments hesitation, not waiting to learn why or for what reason, my father ran. Finding himself in the orchard without knowing why he was there, he saw the galloping horse and thought, I must stop this horse. Finding himself in the orchard without knowing why he was there, he saw the galloping horse and thought, I must stop this horse.

67 He did so and found me. He did so and found me. And that is how I was saved from serious injury or possible death And that is how I was saved from serious injury or possible death (Bruce R. McConkie, Hearken to the Spirit, Friend, Sept. 1972, p. 10). (Bruce R. McConkie, Hearken to the Spirit, Friend, Sept. 1972, p. 10).

68 How did the Holy Ghost save young Bruce McConkie from serious injury? What might have happened if Bruces father hadnt obeyed the whispering of the Spirit so quickly? Bruce R. McConkie was later called to be a Seventy and then an Apostle; we might not have had this important leader.

69 How could an experience like this strengthen a persons testimony? Why? Sometimes we might not immediately see the blessings that come from listening to the promptings of the Holy Ghost. Sometimes we might not immediately see the blessings that come from listening to the promptings of the Holy Ghost. We can be sure, however, that we will be blessed if we obey the promptings that come to us. We can be sure, however, that we will be blessed if we obey the promptings that come to us.
