"As we act in faith, we often find that the blessings from the Lord are different than we expected but much better than we imagined." Neil L. Andersen, "A Spiritual Work"

"Each time you choose to try to live more like the Savior, you will have your testimony strengthened. You will come in time to know for yourself that He is the Light of the World.” —President Henry B Eyring
I love the story in 3 Nephi 17 where Jesus has come to the Nephites. He says he is going to the Father and to show himself to the lost tribes of Israel. He looked around at the multitude and saw they were sad to see him go, so he was "filled with compassion towards them" and stayed and healed the sick and had mercy on them. I think of this every time I get impatient and want to get on with my list of thing to do. I need to be more Christlike and have compassion and patience.
