Dallin H Oaks.....

Yea, blessed are the poor in spirit who come unto me, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

And again, blessed are all they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.  (3 Nephi 12: 3-4)

The Savior knows that in this life we will have much sorrow and heartache, much adversity and affliction.  But we can find comfort;  we can find peace and joy In the Lord.  If we learn to let go of the world and really let Christ into our lives, we can find “peace of God, which passeth all understanding”  Philippians 4:7.  Elder Jeffrey R Holland said, “Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don’t come until heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come.”  (Ensign, November , 1999.  The key is for us to come unto Christ in all humility and meekness. If we cast our burdens at his feet and trust in his tender care, we will feel his comfort.  Not just now but for all eternity, we will feel his everlasting peace.  When Ye Shall Receive These Things. Robert Millett and Lloyd Newell, p 328
“…continuing revelation is the means by which the Lord administers His timing. We need that revelatory direction.”
