Life is never easy. We all have our stormy days. In the Book of Mormon there is a prophet named Helaman who gives advice to his son's about the days that are the hardest. He tells us how we will be able to make it through them. He says in Helaman 5:12
|And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the son of God, that ye must build your Foundation; that when the devil shall sends forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.|
What is says is simple. If we believe in Christ we will be able to make it through the hard times. If we never had sad times we would know the difference of happy times. Also if we never had opposition in life our relationship with our Heavenly father would be weak.
