I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love having the gospel and knowing the things that I do. I know that this challenge would probably be so unbearable without that knowledge and without the help of the gospel through prayer, fasting, study, priesthood blessings. I am grateful. I am blessed. But its still hard. The start of every day is a challenge. A challenge to be of good cheer. Some days are easier than others. Today is not one of those days. I have not only been really studying the scriptures but the words of our prophet and other church leaders. I have recently gained comfort and peace from reading:
This talk by Elder Neal A. Maxwell called "Enduring Well"
This talk by Sis. Elaine S. Dalton called "Lessons from the Old Testament: Lessons from Ruth and Hannah"
I would recommend both for anyone who is going through any type of difficulty in their life.
