This scripture spoke to my heart as I entered the divorced period of my life. I felt the spirit tell me that although I didn't know how long I would be single, I should live my life, settle in and make plans as if for years. Although that wasn't necessarily what I wanted to hear, it has been a blessing to me.
Thanks for sharing this, this is a principle I think is very beneficial for us but not always remembered when opportunities for application arise. As you point out, it is especially pertinent for those of us in our YSA years. I've tried to apply this principle as I've gone through college and, while not always perfect in doing so, great blessings have come. In fact, I have a testimony that living somewhere "as for years", even if it is to only be for a few months, better prepares us to move on to the next stage in our life.
