"Faith in something greater than ourselves, enables us to do what we have said we'll do, to press forward when we are tired or hurt or afraid, to keep going when the challenge seems overwhelming and the course is entirely uncertain."


- President Hinckley

 i am reading "standing for something" right now by President Hinckley. I am not a very good reader but i like to ease through books slowly and last night while i was thumbing through the book this quote came about. and of course the one word that threw me a loop was:

Uncertainty


i wish i was certain... dont you?


i guess thats where faith comes in, to make things okay. in a talk by richard g. scott he mentions this:


Who does not have need of assurance in times of uncertainty and testing? Who is so self-confident that there is never want for a stabilizing influence in life? A fundamental purpose of earth life is personal growth and attainment. Consequently, there must be times of trial and quandary to provide opportunity for that development. What child could ever grow to be self-supporting in maturity were all the critical decisions made by parents? So it is with our Heavenly Father. His plan of happiness is conceived so that we will have challenges, even difficulties, where decisions of great importance must be made so that we can grow, develop, and succeed in this mortal probation. Gratefully, in His perfect love, He has provided a way for us to resolve those challenges while growing in strength and capacity.


so i guess at the end of the day... it just all makes sense. its true none of us have enough self confidence just to know that everything is going to be okay. exactly why we stress about everything. but its the uncertainty that helps us grow. again i am rambling. but if you get a chance look at this amazing talk by richard g. scott. i found it on my sunday visit to lds.org
