15 And now it came to pass that the burdens which were laid upon Alma and his brethren were made light; yea, the Lord did strengthen 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.
None of us makes it through this life without problems and challenges—and sometimes tragedies and misfortunes. After all, in large part we are here to learn and grow from such events in our lives. We know that there are times when we will suffer, when we will grieve, and when we will be saddened. However, we are told, “Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy….”
My beloved brothers and sisters, fear not. Be of good cheer. The future is as bright as your faith. (“Be of Good Cheer,” General Conference, April 2009).
Today, I will strive to “submit cheerfully and with patience” to all of the learning experiences of the day. When I encounter challenges or difficulties, I will focus on the positive things and will have faith in God that all things will work together for my good (Romans 8:28).
