This is particularly uplifting to ponder, because we all face our unique trials in life.
Blessings, Gar, "Thinking of things we are grateful for is a healing balm. It helps us get outside ourselves. It changes our focus from our pains and our trials to the abundance of this beautiful world we live in."
A Happy Heart
Our trials can either end up hardening our heart or humbling us. How true the saying that suffering in life is inevitable, but misery is of our own making. In other words, because of the plan that we all agreed upon in the premortal life, we are going to suffer, whether we want to or not. However, if you can find how to suffer that tribulation in the Redeemerâ€™s name, you will bear it well and perhaps even do it with an understanding, happy heart.
