Difficult days

We've all heard it, no matter how hard things are, there is someone going through something even more difficult. And it never fails that no matter who says it or how we heard it, we dont quite seem to find how that applies to us. I know that applies to me. As I was having a hard day, like we all have every once in a while, that thought has came to me. And after debating it im my mind for a while I finally chose to think about how that could even be true. I thought about people I have met on my mission. I thought about people back at home, and none of those things seemed to help. Then I thought about the Savior's words to us, "Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted." (Matthew 5:4) It was only then did I remember just how good I have it. Later the Savior taught, "come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30) I hope we will remember the Lord Jesus Christ everyday, because life's challenges are going to come and we need His help. I testify and promise that the Lord will be there to give us aid when ever we come unto Him. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

  1. This post is such a great reminder for me! I love it!! Thank you Elder Haymore! It is so true.. the Lord is always there whenever I am having a difficult time! He loves us all so much, doesn't He! :) Sometimes I feel better just talking to God, sometimes he shows His love for me through someone else, and sometimes it's serving someone else that I forget my own troubles.
