Yesterday a young lady told me she wasn’t interested in continuing to pursue a relationship with me…
I didn’t have a lot invested after only a couple weeks, but the pattern of rarely making it past 2 or 3 dates is tough!
I’m reminded again of President Uchtdorf’s words from last October:
Faith means that we trust not only in God’s wisdom but that we trust also in His love. It means trusting that God loves us perfectly, that everything He does—every blessing He gives and every blessing He, for a time, withholds—is for our eternal happiness…
We can be certain that answers will come, and we may be confident that we will not only be content with the answers but we will also be overwhelmed by the grace, mercy, generosity, and love of our Heavenly Father for us, His children.
Faith isn’t trusting God while consigning myself to unhappiness.
Faith is trusting God and expecting that His plan will make me happier than my plan. Faith is choosing to hope when I have no prospects. Faith is looking forward to happiness when I feel apathetic.
I pray for hope and faith. And I’m given opportunities to exercise hope and faith :)
