All day yesterday I had a feeling that I needed to take a look at the general conference edition of the Liahona (the LDS church magazine) The first thing my eye went to was this conference talk entitled “Infuriating Unfairness” by Elder Dale G. Renlund of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. I started reading it aloud to my husband. It was strange because the talk started with the genocide in Rwanda in 1994, which happened to be the exact same topic our stake president talked about in stake conference yesterday.
Two thirds of the way through, it became difficult for me to continue reading. It resonated with me. I’m having a lot of experiences like these lately and I’m conflicted about them because I want to know the how and when that is talked about here. It becomes discouraging at times but I know my blessings have outweighed my trials two to one. Most people might not look at it that way, but I do and I know that this will be resolved in God’s time. My nephew quoted this scripture on our first discussion:
“And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith.”
I told him at the time that the message was indeed for me but that I was not interested in his religion, I was wrong. I have the faith to see this through, even on my bad days when I’m consumed with the how and when. I will do my best to remember that I am in my Heavenly Father’s loving hands and this is my trial to endure.
Here is the link to the conference talk. I highly recommended it.
