when i lived at home, every sunday my mom would ask us what we learned at church. of course being the angel of a child that i am, i would pull out my notebook, pages filled with insightful notes and quotes… lies. that was a lie. but today at stake conference i did hear a quote that was so perfect and exactly for me:
with even your strongest faith, God will not always reward you immediately according to your desires. rather, God will respond with what in His eternal plan is best for you, when it will yield the greatest advantage. be thankful that sometimes God lets you struggle for a long time before that answer come. that causes your faith to increase and your character to grow.
