May 7, 2021 - Hope On

Yes, the world is in turmoil. And yes, we have weaknesses. But we do not need to hang our heads in despair, because we can trust God, we can trust His Son, Jesus Christ, and we can accept the gift of the Spirit to guide us on this path toward a life filled with joy and divine happiness.

Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf, "God Among Us", General Conference, April 2021

Hope is a very powerful thing. But so is despair. Hope, though, is stronger than despair. However, despair is easier to feel. Therefore, we all tend to attract to it because of the easiness of the way. We have to intentionally go the other way, towards hope.

Like any athlete, or musician, we have to practice. We absolutely have to put in the time and effort. Nothing worth having will be easy. Nothing.

But, anything worth having will be worth it. Especially, if that "thing" is eternal life with our family and loved ones (who also must practice), Jesus Christ, and Heavenly Father.

So, let's start walking towards hope. That hope is found in Jesus Christ. It will not be, and is not, easy. But it's worth it.
