Faith

So, I know it has been a very long time since I last blogged, and a huge summer post will be coming in a few weeks, but until then, I wanted to share some uplifting words.
Lately I have found myself getting really down with things that have been happening in our Country. I also know that there are many people, friends and family that are having different trials. While looking up something on our Stake website, I came across this quote. How thankful I am for our knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I think it is very important to do everything that we can to better ourselves and society, and after all is said and done, we need to remember that Heavenly Father has a plan for all of us. Let us never lose faith.

"I testify to you that our promised blessings are beyond measure. Though the storm clouds may gather, though the rains may pour down upon us, our knowledge of the gospel and our love of our Heavenly Father and of our Savior will comfort and sustain us and bring joy to our hearts as we walk uprightly and keep the commandments. There will be nothing in this world that can defeat us.

My beloved brothers and sisters, fear not. Be of good cheer. The future is as bright as your faith."
