God Will Lift Us Up!!!
Lately I have been thinking a lot about why people go through hard things. Today I came across this Video. It showed a young woman that was going through a tough time. It shows how she has endured her struggles and trusted in her Heavenly Father. Her example to me is wonderful. Also at the end of the video Elder Robert D. Hales, who also has gone through lots of trails of his own, Bares a very strong testimony of why we go through trials. He says, "Tests and trials are given to all of us. These mortal challenges allow us and our Heavenly Father to see whether we will exercise our agency to follow His Son. Yes,weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Then, in the dawn of our increased faith and understanding, we arise and choose to wait upon the Lord, saying, Thy will be done.”
Seeing this video and hearing the testimony of Elder Hales reminds me of Doctrine and Covenants 122:7-9. This is when Joseph Smith is in Liberty Jail and he is going through a rough time. At the end of verse 7 after it lists many bad things that could happen to Joseph it says, "know thou, my son, that all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good." I find that statement to be true. We go through hard things, But if we endure the trial and make it through it and turn to God, Then we are blessed. Verse 8 to me is my favorite. It reads, "The Son of Man hath descended below them all. Art thou greater than he?" Jesus Christ has been through everything that all of us will ever go through. Who better to turn to than Him when we need help.
I know that when we go through Trials they are for our good. Though they may be hard, If we turn to God and His Son Jesus Christ, Then They will help us through them. And when we get through them, God will bless us. I know this is True!
