Faith in Action, Courage
“… They that wait upon [Him] shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles. …“For … the Lord … God will hold [their] right hand, saying unto [them], Fear not; I will help thee.” Isaiah 40:28, 29, 31; 41:13.
Keep loving. Keep trying. Keep trusting. Keep believing. Keep growing. Heaven is cheering you on today, tomorrow, and forever. ~Jeffrey R. Holland
Courage as well as cowardice is contagious. ~Pat Buchanan
Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their reviling. For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be forever, and my salvation from generation to generation. ~Isaiah 51:7,8
I do know that whosoever shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions, and shall be lifted up at the last day.
There is a divine purpose in the adversities we encounter every day. They prepare, they purge, they purify, and thus they bless. ~James E. Faust
Out of the refiner’s fire can come a glorious deliverance. It can be a noble and lasting rebirth. The price to become acquainted with God will have been paid. There can come a sacred peace. There will be a reawakening of dormant, inner resources. A comfortable cloak of righteousness will be drawn around us to keep us warm spiritually. Self-pity will vanish as our blessings are counted. James E. Faust
Divine covenants make strong Christians. I urge each one to qualify for and receive all the priesthood ordinances you can and then faithfully keep the promises you have made by covenant. In times of distress, let your covenants be paramount and let your obedience be exact. Then you can ask in faith, nothing wavering, according to your need, and God will answer. He will sustain you as you work and watch. In His own time and way He will stretch forth his hand to you, saying, “Here am I.” ~D. Todd Christofferson
When the devil reminds you about your past, you just remind him about his future.
No matter how serious the trial, how deep the distress, how great the affliction, [God] will never desert us. He never has, and He never will. He cannot do it. It is not His character [to do so]. … He will [always] stand by us. We may pass through the fiery furnace; we may pass through deep waters; but we shall not be consumed nor overwhelmed. We shall emerge from all these trials and difficulties the better and purer for them.”9 ~George Q. Cannon
