Sitting In Shadows
My last post has left me thinking. I did not want, in any way, to leave the impression that only those going through death and disease are entitled to the right to claim the path of trial and hardship. Quoting from the most recent General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Elder Uchtdorf reminds us of the shadows we all sit in from time to time.
"There may be some among you who feel darkness encroaching upon you. You may feel burdened by worry, fear, or doubt. To you and to all of us, I repeat a wonderful and certain truth: God’s light is real. It is available to all! It gives life to all things. It has the power to soften the sting of the deepest wound. It can be a healing balm for the loneliness and sickness of our souls. In the furrows of despair, it can plant the seeds of a brighter hope. It can enlighten the deepest valleys of sorrow. It can illuminate the path before us and lead us through the darkest night into the promise of a new dawn."
Light will come with each tiny act of faith. Our loving Father in Heaven does not want to see us fail. He will bless our efforts as we spread our wings and seek after truth and light. Of this I am sure.
