That can challenge our patience and endurance. We need to trust in the Lord and in His timing that a positive response to our prayers and rescue efforts can occur. We do all that we can to serve, to bless, and to submissively acknowledge God’s will in all things. We exercise faith and remember that there are some things that must be left to the Lord. He invites us to set our burdens down at His feet. With faith we can know that this straying loved one is not abandoned but is in the watchcare of a loving Savior.
Recognize the good in others, not their stains. At times a stain needs appropriate attention to be cleansed, but always build on his or her virtues.
When you feel that there is only a thin thread of hope, it is really not a thread but a massive connecting link, like a life preserver to strengthen and lift you. It will provide comfort so you can cease to fear. Strive to live worthily and place your trust in the Lord.
For Peace at Home BY ELDER RICHARD G. SCOTT, ENSIGN, MAY,
Thanks for this talk, I love listening to Richard G. Scott. I will remember this. If there is one thing I know it is that my Heavenly Father knows me and I love him and my Savior and think of the love he has for us to offer His Son. I don't know that I could do that, I love my children too much. I guess I just need to be reminded that even though I feel alone and don't think I can do it, to remember to give it to the Lord. I love you and Tom, thanks for giving letting me come up and have a little taste of "Heaven".
