Sometimes, the cup must be drained for the greater good. Sometimes the single grain of hope and desire must die in the earth for a newly budding head of wheat to rise. For this cause came we into the world.
S. Michael Wilcox, "What Seek Ye?", Deseret Book, 2020
Sometimes what we go through, that is difficult, needs to happen because it is making way for something great, and positive, better than what we can even imagine.
Many times what we need is right up ahead around the corner if only we would hold on a bit longer. Just hold on. Our Father is hoping, even encouraging, us to go just a bit longer.
