A Prospective Principle of Power

While continuing to struggle with my own inadequacies and frustrated with my constant stumbling, it helped me this morning when I picked up the September issue of the "Liahona" and read the article by Elder D. Todd Christofferson, "Building Faith in Christ".

His words seemed to leap out of the page at me, wherein he pointed out that "the baptismal covenant applies prospectively as well as retrospectively: each time we truly repent, that covenant is reinvigorated and we once again qualify for a remission of sins.".

He went on to say that he was "speaking of faith not only as a principle of action but also as a principle of power" and reminded me again that "out of weakness" all of us can be "made strong".

And so it goes that, once again, I am reminded and strengthened to keep on keeping on.

Would that all legislators had the same perspective.
