One thing I have noticed about life is most of the time we are waiting for something. Whether it is waiting for spring to come. Waiting to find love. Waiting to start a family. Waiting for an admissions letter. We do a lot of waiting. Sometimes the waiting is excruciating… Thinking about the what if’s. We can only do the best we can do and wait for the result. Sometimes it is comforting to know that we are waiting for a reason. God has a plan. We can pray to God and give him our specific timeline but most of the time our plan and his do not line up. Some of these scriptures have gotten me through the lowest of lows. Hopefully they will be of some comfort to you. What have you been waiting for? Let me know in a pm or the comments.
D&C 121: 7-8
7 My son, peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment;
8 And then, if thou endure it well, God shall exalt thee on high; thou shalt triumph over all thy foes.
9 Thy friends do stand by thee, and they shall hail thee again with warm hearts and friendly hands.
2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
17 Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed.
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew theirstrength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
