For any one struggling at this time and wondering, does god really care about me? If any one is wondering during a time of distress or trial: “Why doesn’t God answer my prayers of desired peace?”. I invite you to ponder this in your heart.
This world is a home our father designed for us to learn and grow in. The natural consequence of watching a child grow is sometimes seeing the child get bruises or skinned knee, or seeing the child have a sad day, or maybe be in pain because of a poor decision they have made. We are Heavenly Father’s children. Like the love and desire to help that a parent has toward their child, God loves his children, We are everything to him. His desire to direct us to happier living and peace is his top priority (Moses 1:39).
Remember the trials we face are tests and usually the teacher is silent during tests. God does not abandon us in our times of need. He has taught us everything we need to know to pass our test and trial. Remember this test is open book. We have notes and tutors to help us along the way. We have a loving prophet who, I testify, is the voice of God to help us. We have the scriptures and the priesthood. Tools that allow us to receive constant advice and comfort from his spirit. Please remember to bear these burdens in life with patience and hope.
Our Father does Love us. Remember his son Jesus Christ, who gave the advice to the prophet Joseph Smith during his greatest trial. Found in the 122 section of the Doctrine and Covenants verses 7 and 8 “And if thou shouldst be cast into the pit, or into the hands of murderers, and the sentence of death passed upon thee; if thou be cast into the deep; if the billowing surge conspire against thee; if fierce winds become thine enemy; if the heavens gather backness, and all the elements combine to hedge up the way; and above all, if the very jaws of hell shall gape open the mouth wide after thee, know thou, my son, that all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good. The Son of Man hath descended below them all. Art thou greater than he?”
Don’t give up on Him because He has not given up on us . In the name of Jesus Christ Amen
