I want the Latter-day Saints to stop murmuring and complaining at the providence of God. Trust in God. Do your duty. Remember your prayers. Get faith in the Lord, and take hold and build up Zion. All will be right. The Lord is going to visit his people, and he is going to cut his work short in righteousness, lest no flesh should be saved. I say to you, watch the signs of the times, and prepare yourselves for that which is to come.
President Wilford Woodruff, “The Discourses of Wilford Woodruff” by G. Homer Durham
I often wonder if I complain. I may not even know I do. I know I get frustrated and I'm sure that comes out as murmuring and complaining. Here is a prophet of God, albeit a long time ago, telling me to NOT complain. To trust God.
A lot of times I get frustrated with society and politics and the many issues that go along with that. Maybe it's because I know where this road ends in terms of calamity, in terms of the wicked in the great and spacious building, in terms of the wheat and tares, and I don't want to experience that. Maybe it's because I perceive that as a personal attack on my livelihood and peace.
I don't know why I get so frustrated, it is going to happen. I can't control it.
All I can do is focus on improving myself and help my loved ones and friends do the same. I can't worry about things outsof my control, even if those "things" affect me and my ability to improve myself.
All I can do is trust Christ.
All I can do is work to be on the winning side of this. We know Christ wins. That's not debatable. Only question that looms, is where will be standing when this road ends?
Christ = peace, quiet, and comfort.
Satan = worry, uneasiness, and fear.
Which side do you suppose any of us want to be on?
