'I prayed to Heavenly Father to help me forgive 100 percent'

My brother, Jeff, is at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah. Before he left, he promised me that he would write to me, if I wrote to him.

A little while ago, I wrote a letter to him. A few days later, four members of the family each got a letter from Jeff, but I didn't get one. This made me feel like he had broken his promise to me. I started to have feelings that I did not like very much. Nothing seemed to be going very well. I felt like I wasn't even a member of the family. I was angry with Jeff for writing to everyone but me. I began to feel like I was under the power of Satan.My mom noticed that I wasn't acting like myself. She told me that Jeff would write. He probably had not gotten the letter I sent to him when he mailed the letters to the others. I started to feel a lot better when I knew why I had not gotten a letter from Jeff. I guess if you know why people do what they do, it is easy to forgive.

I prayed to Heavenly Father to be forgiven of my bad thoughts and to help me forgive Jeff 100 percent. When I did this, I felt even better. I felt peace and knew that Satan had no more power over me.

I was really happy when I got a letter from Jeff about a week after my family got their letters. I learned that I have to be patient.
