“BUT behold, I, Jacob, would speak unto you that are pure in heart. Look unto God with firmness of mind, and pray unto him with exceeding faith, and he will console you in your afflictions, and he will plead your cause, and send down justice upon those who seek your destruction. O all ye that are pure in heart, lift up your heads and receive the pleasing word of God, and feast upon his love; for ye may, if your minds are firm, forever“(Jacob 3:1).
What a beautiful and comforting promise. If you and I are hurting, Christ is the one to hold onto. When we need comfort, consolation, and some one on our side, again, it is Jesus Christ we can turn to. The deep wounds that many feel, and wonder if they’ll ever heal, can be soothed and sometimes removed through the atonement. I’m so grateful for the love of the Savior and for the scriptures which point me continually towards him.
