November 24, 2014 - Quick Scripture

Ok, I don´t have much time this week to write this letter, but what I do want to share is Mosiah 24:12-16. This is such a powerful story and example of faith, patience, and persevering. The meaning of these verses really sunk in when I was accompanying the sisters in one of their appointments and they shared this scripture and wow, it struck me. It says,

 12 And Alma and his people did not raise their voices to the Lord their God, but did pour out their hearts to him; and he did know the thoughts of their hearts.
 13 And it came to pass that the voice of the Lord came to them in their afflictions, saying: Lift up your heads and be of good comfort, for I know of the covenant which ye have made unto me; and I will covenant with my people and deliver them out of bondage.
 14 And I will also ease the burdens which are put upon your shoulders, that even you cannot feel them upon your backs, even while you are in bondage; and this will I do that ye may stand aswitnesses for me hereafter, and that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit my people in their afflictions.
 15 And now it came to pass that the burdens which were laid upon Alma and his brethren were made light; yea, the Lord didstrengthen them that they could bear up their burdens with ease, and they did submit cheerfully and with patience to all the will of the Lord.
 16 And it came to pass that so great was their faith and their patience that the voice of the Lord came unto them again, saying: Be of good comfort, for on the morrow I will deliver you out of bondage.
This is my message to all of you, that we trust in the Lord. He will help us. I know it because I have lived it.
I love you all!
