We can let ourselves out of prison by turning to the Lord for strength. With His help we can use our trials as stepping-stones. The keys are in our hands.
“I, the Lord, am bound when ye do what I say; but when ye do not what I say, ye have no promise.” (D&C 82:10.)
If we are offended and resentful, can we believe that He is bound to help us in our tragedies and disappointments? This scripture does not tell us how or when this commitment will be effective or realized, but His promise is real and binding. Our challenge is to endure. There will always be testing’s and trials along life’s paths. Heartaches and tragedies need not defeat us if we remember God’s promise.
