I was thinking about things and realized how much people (I know) are going through right now. Loss of job, loss of income, loss of a child, stress of how to support your family, stress just from everyday life. I was thinking about my own situation and challenges. Wondering what else I can do? Wondering if I am doing something wrong? Wondering if I can change the situation? Thankfully I read my cousin's wife blog today. She has always been a great example to me even though she lives so far away and we dont really talk. She said she came across and article from the Ensign that Elder Richard G. Scott wrote title "Trust in the Lord". He said, "Just when all seems to be going right, challanges often come in multiple doses applied simultaneously. When those trials are not consequences of your disobedience , they are evidence that the Lord feels you are prepared to grow more. He therefore gives you experiences that stimulate growth, understanding and compassion, which polish you for your everlasting benefit. To get you from where you are to where He wants you to be requires a lot of stretching, and that generally entails discomfort and pain."
The scripture D&C 84:88 was also quoted, "I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up."
I am grateful that I read her blog. It was well needed.
I thought to post this because I was needing this and it gave me peace. Maybe it will help someone who reads this on my blog?
