"Therefore, hold up your alight that it may shine unto the world. Behold I am the blight which ye shall hold up" 3 nephi 18:24
May we all let our light so shine before men. Our God has given us life, he has loved us more than we can comprehend. Will we not show our love for him by giving him our lives? I testify that this Gospel is true, that Christ is the "light and life of the world". I know that nothing will bring us more joy than spreading that light with those we love. (D&C 18:16) I know that we all have weaknesses, The Lord has reminded me of my own every day. However, we also have more power than we can comprehend. "Honestly acknowledge your questions and your concerns, but first and forever fan the flame of your faith, because all things are possible to them that believe." -Jeffery R. Holland
There are times in life when we will feel beaten. We will feel defeated, and we will feel lost. Lean on the Savior. Let him carry you. Look to him as an example in all things. When we feel like quitting, remember him! He never quit. He never ceased to love, he never ceased to give, he never ceased to work. He died for us, and we will live for him.
"The great test of life is to see whether we will hearken to and obey God’s commands in the midst of the storms of life. It is not to endure storms, but to choose the right while they rage." - Henry B. Eyring"
I love all of you. I pray for you, and think of you often. Keep going. Keep trying. I know things are hard. These troubles we face will be but a small moment in the span of eternity. This life is the time for us to prepare both ourselves and others to meet God.
Shall we not go on in so great a cause?
