Open your hearts to our Savior and Redeemer, no matter your circumstances, trials, sufferings or mistakes. You can know that He lives and that He loves you and because of Him, you will never be alone.
Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf, General Conference, Saturday Morning Session, April 3, 2021
Many times in life we feel alone. At least that has been my experience. Whether by our own mistakes, or by some tragedy, or because of other circumstances that are either the result of self-infliction or not, we sometimes feel like we are carrying some burden all by ourselves. And it can be heavy.
Whether or not we caused our own challenges or suffering, Christ is right there with us. Whether we accept Him or not, He is still our Savior, Redeemer, Peacegiver, Supporter, and Brother. He is there whether or not we believe in Him. And nothing will change that fact.
To me, another person can try to reason that "oxygen" doesn't exist because we can't see it, but that person can reason til he's blue in the face.... it exists. And any attempt at trying to convince me otherwise will be a waste of time and pointless. Just because you say something is not real doesn't make it true.
I feel the same way about Jesus Christ, the Plan of Salvation, and all of the gospel truths. Just because I can't see Him, or hold on to something that is tangible, does not mean it doesn't exist. And any attempt at trying to convince me that these things are not real, is futile.
It is never a question as to if He's real or not. It's never a question as to if He is still alive or not. It is only a question as to if we want to follow Him or not.
