A Way of Working Out

Photo by Kirk Kirkham
Do not expect that all will go smoothly throughout your life. Even for those who are living as they should, it sometimes will be just the opposite. Meet each of life’s challenges with optimism and surety and you will have the peace and faith to sustain you now and in the future.

For those who do not yet have all of the blessings you feel you want and need to have, I firmly believe that no experience or opportunity essential for redemption and salvation will be denied you who live faithfully. Remain worthy; be hopeful, patient, and prayerful. Things have a way of working out. The gift of the Holy Ghost will guide you and direct your actions. - Boyd K. Packer, January 2011

Good reminder! It's a very hard thing to be optimistic and cheerful sometimes. But I do believe in the the power of positive thinking and I also firmly believe that our Loving Father will make it all right in the end.

Excellent counsel. It's a bit of a marathon, isn't it?
But well worth the running...and a few rest stops along the way.
