Nevertheless, it previously perplexed me when some sympathetic friends congratulated me on my attitude about adversity, particularly when I really don't believe that my lot in life has been all that grievous.
In point of fact, I am so very grateful for all the amazing opportunities and miracles with which I have been so profoundly blessed.
As I continued to puzzle, ponder, and pray about all that I have experienced and how some could view those experiences of mine from such a different perspective, I was prompted to read the following:
"And I will ease the burdens which are upon your shoulders, that even you cannot feel them upon your backs...that ye may stand as witnesses for me thereafter..." (Book of Mormon: Mosiah, Chapter 24, verse 14)
And so it has been for me, and, even though I am among the most
unworthy of all His children, I nevertheless know that my Redeemer lives and that He is the author and finisher of my faith.
