This week I shared a saying I have on my mirror. I had it at home in Idaho and now have it here. I love it and read it every morning.
President Gordon B. Hinkley
It isn't as bad as you sometimes think it is.
It all works out Don't worry.
I say that to myself every morning.
It will all work out.
Put your trust in God.
And move forward with faith
And confidence in the future.
The Lord will not forsake us.
He will not forsake us.
If we will put our trust in Him.
If we will pray to Him.
If we will live worthy of His blessings.
He will hear our prayers.
I can't help but think...."This is a prophet and he felt he needed to say this to himself, I know I need to say it to myself." And I do every day!! It goes with a scripture I read this week in my studies:
Alma 38:5--"...put your trust in God even so much ye shall be delivered out of your trials, and your troubles, and your afflictions, and ye shall be lifted up at the last day." Never did it say we would not have trials or afflictions, but he will be there for us and help us through.
It seem to be a message he gave us often.
|Elder Lo is from Hong Kong and is studying his scriptures in Chinese. He is getting better all the time with his English. I can understand most of what he says now. He has taught some of his companions some words in Chinese.|

Another one of the quotes I used for our devotional that I really like:
"We cannot go to heaven in a feather bed. The Savior of the world entered after great pain and suffering. We, as servants, can expect no more than the Master. Before Easter there must be a cross. While we walk these paths which bring forth bitter sorrow, we can also walk those paths which yield eternal joy."”Thomas S. Monson, "The Paths Jesus Walked", Ensign, , May 1974
