Daily Quotes - Being Overwhelmed

"No matter how serious the trial, how deep the distress, how great the affliction, God will never desert us. He never has, and He never will. He cannot do it. It is not His character. He is an unchangeable being; the same yesterday, the same today, and He will be the same throughout the eternal ages to come. We have found that God. We have made Him our friend, by obeying His Gospel; and He will stand by us. We may pass through the fiery furnace; we may pass through deep waters; but we shall not be consumed nor overwhelmed We shall emerge from all these trials and difficulties the better and purer for them, if we only trust in our God and keep His commandments."

Daily Quotes - Trouble-Free Life

Trouble-Free Life
"The Gospel will show us a way through and around our troubles. It promises no crown without a cross, no triumph with out a battle. Remember, the storms beat upon the house built upon the rock, even as they do upon the one built on sand."

Daily Quotes - Performing Extraordinary Deeds -

Performing Extraordinary Deeds
“We must remember that much spiritual growth does not occur suddenly but rather through time and experience. The encouraging message of the gospel is that God does not often require us to perform sensational or extraordinary deeds but rather to try to do better today than we did yesterday. He is mindful of our desires, our determination, and our direction as well as of our deeds.”

Daily Quotes (Women's Influence)

When I came out on my mission my sister started sending me 3 by 5 cards with quotes on them and I thought I would start taking the quote and doing a daily quote on my blog with them so here is the first one.

Women’s Influence
"No matter what circumstances you sisters’ experience, your influence can be marvelously far-reaching. I believe some of you have a tendency to underestimate your profound capacity for blessing the lives of others. More often than not, it is not on the stage with some public pronouncement but in your example of righteousness and the countless gentle acts of love and kindness done so willingly, so often on a one to one basis”

One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonged to him, and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. he noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that at the worst times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. How could you leave me when I needed you the most?"

The Lord replied " My precious, precious child, I love you and would never leave you. During your times of suffering. When you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.

The Lord is always here for us even when we don't see him.

In an arch you have lots of stones, the foundation, voussoir, springer and the keystone. All of these stones you need to make an arch but one of the most important stones there is in the arch, is the Keystone. In the Websters dictionary it says about keystones, "Keystone is the wedge shaped piece at the crown of an arch that Locks the other pieces in place." So if you have the keystone, the arch stands, if you take it out the arch falls.
     Joseph Smith once taught, "The Book of Mormon is the Keystone of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints." All the pressure  is on the Book of Mormon. If that gets taken out then everything falls. If the Book of Mormon is not true than Joseph Smith did not see our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. That would mean that they did not tell Joseph to Restore the Church that Jesus Christ set up on the earth. It would also mean that Joseph Smith is not a prophet and we would not have a living Prophet on the earth today. Which would mean God dose not speak to mankind anymore.
But the Book of Mormon is true.
  Elder Holland once said "For 179 years this book has been examined and attacked, denied and deconstruction, targeted and torn apart like perhaps no other book in modern religious history—perhaps like no other book in any religious history. And still it stands."
“No wicked man could write such a book as this; and no good man would write it, unless it were true and he were commanded of God to do so.”
  I am so grateful that I have found out for my self that the Book of Mormon is true, and because I know its true I know that we have a prophet on the earth today, that our Loving Heavenly Father still speaks to all of us today and that Joseph Smiths is really The Prophet that restored Christ's Church, that Jesus really is the Christ, The Son of a Living God
