“I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, … my Spirit shall be in your [heart], and mine angels round about you, to bear you up.” D&C 84:88
"We are not alone in our little prisons here. When suffering, we may in fact be nearer to God than we’ve ever been in our entire lives. That knowledge can turn every such situation into a would-be temple." -Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
How true those quotes are, and how blind we are. When in the middle of a trial, like in the poem footprints, we look back, seeing only one set and think that they are our own, and that we've been forsaken. How untrue that is. It's so hard to see the good in the middle of hurting, and most times we are only blinding ourselves. Just take a step back, look at it from a bigger perspective. Pray to an all knowing God, and even though you won't know how exactly, you WILL receive the confirmation and know that it will all work out.
"Sometimes good things fall apart so that even better things can fall together."
Right now I'm just hoping and wishing that my even better thing will be the same, just in the future at a better time. But I'm not so scared anymore, because I KNOW that either way, it will all work out.
Don't live your life holding onto something that you can't have, it just bears you down. Let it go, things will work out. You'll feel so much better. You'll be able to breathe again.
A church leader (but I don't know which one, and can't find it right now, sorry) said something to this effect, "The greatest battles that we will ever fight will be in the chambers of our own souls." It's a daily battle, and we can let our hearts fail us.
"Hard as things seem today, they will be better the next day if you choose to serve the Lord THIS day. The other promise I make to you is that by choosing to serve Him this day you will feel his love, and grow to love him more..." Pres. Henry B. Eyring.
"It's not about your scars, it's all about your heart." -Mindy Gledhill
