What Lies Ahead

“We know not all that lies ahead of us. We live in a world of uncertainty. For some, there will be great accomplishment. For others, disappointment. For some, much of rejoicing and gladness, good health, and gracious living. For others, perhaps sickness and a measure of sorrow. We do not know. But one thing we do know. Like the Polar Star in the heavens, regardless of what the future holds, there stands the Redeemer of the world, the Son of God, certain and sure as the anchor of our immortal lives. He is the rock of our salvation, our strength, our comfort, the very focus of our faith.

In sunshine and in shadow we look to Him, and He is there to assure and smile upon us.”

Gordon B. Hinckley

We Testify of Jesus Christ

Ensign, May 2008

I am very grateful to Rachel for sharing this with me as we visited this afternoon, (she also brought me Russian ravioli, YUM!) because after reading it, I felt a large measure of peace. Some of you may not be religious, some of you may not even believe in God, but I KNOW He is there, and I am, especially right now, so grateful for his unconditional love for me. That’s how I’m feeling this evening, have a great night all!

  4. Lovely quotation, and full of peace and comfort-vibes. Good pick, Rachel!

    God is your strong tower right now, Sarah.

    Isaiah 40:31
    “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew {their} strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; {and} they shall walk, and not faint.”

  5. I love President Hinckley and man I miss him. That was an awesome quote. He was truly an inspired man; knowledgeable of everything we individuals were experience.

    I wish you the best!
