The words of wise leaders has helped me through many challenges. It is when we stop listening to their inspired counsel and advice that we may have a more difficult time feeling the promptings of the Holy Ghost, Gar
â€œWe have a certain joy, and the joy is knowing these things are temporary. The trials we are given on earth are for us, and the Lord knows everything we are going through and they are to augment our faith and bring us to God." Elder Bruce Hafen
Perspective in Trials
When in situations of stress we wonder if there is any more in us to give, we can be comforted to know that God, who knows our capacity perfectly, placed us here to succeed.
No one was foreordained to fail or to be wicked. When we have been weighed and found wanting, let us remember that we were measured before and we were found equal to our tasks; and, therefore, let us continue, but with a more determined discipleship. When we feel overwhelmed, let us recall the assurance that God will not overprogram us; he will not press upon us more than we can bear (D&C 50:40)." â€”(Neal A. Maxwell, "Meeting the Challenges of Today," 1978)
