Obtaining Blessings from the Lord

**My mom printed this talk out for me a few weeks ago and guess who the talk was given by... yep, Elder Scott. For the next 3 days I am going to write quotes from that talk. I don't want to write them all at the same time because they are very powerful.

"We see such a limited part of the eternal plan He has fashioned for each one of us. Trust Him, even when in eternal perspective it temporarily hurts very much. Have patience when you are asked to wait when you want immediate action. He may ask you to do things which are powerfully against your will. Exercise faith and say, Let Thy will be done. Such experiences, honorably met, prepare you and condition you for yet greater blessings. As your Father, His purpose is your eternal happiness, your continuing development, your increasing capacity. His desire is to share with you all that He has. The path you are to walk through life may be very different from others. You may not always know why He does what He does, but you can know that He is perfectly just and perfectly merciful. He would have you suffer no consequence, no challenge, endure no burden that is superfluous to your good."

-Elder Richard G. Scott, "Obtaining Help from the Lord" Ensign Nov. 1991
