Hold On

Recently, I have spoken with so many people struggling through major health problems- some even life threatening. Their feelings include: frustration, panic, helplessness, hopelessness fear, faith, hope, trust, and the list goes on. It wrenches my heart to hear the pain in their voices and my prayers are real and sincere for their physical emotional and spiritual strength to be bolstered.

It is so difficult, when our prayers for healing seem unanswered. But, I know those prayers are heard and Father will provide what is best according to his perspective. I wish I could help in some way; however, the best help I can give is to say, “Hold on thy way” (D&C 122:9). When you feel like giving up, turn again to Christ. When you wish some one understood the severity of your pain and suffering, turn again to Christ. He is the only one who knows exactly what you feel. In fact, not only does he know it, he feels it. He is the only way through the fire of affliction. So, hold on my friend. “Hold on thy way”!
