Faith in Future

hinckley_medium“It isn’t as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don’t worry. I say that to myself every morning. It all works out in the end. Put your trust in God, and more forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we live worthy of the blessings, He will hear our prayers.”
– Gordon B. Hinckley


Lorenzo Snow“There is no Latter-Day Saint who dies after having lived a faithful life who will lose anything because of having failed to do certain things when opportunities were not furnished him or her. In other words, if a young man or a young woman has no opportunity of getting married, and they live faithful lives up to the time of their death, they will have all blessings, exaltation, and glory that any man or woman will have who had this opportunity and improved it. That is sure and positive.”
– Lorenzo Snow

boyd-k-packer-largeSpeaking of the youth: “They will see many events transpire in the course of their lifetime. Some of these shall tax their courage and extend their faith. But if they seek prayerfully for help and guidance, they shall be given power over adverse things . . . The moral values upon which civilization itself must depend spiral downward at an ever-increasing pace. Nevertheless, I do not fear the future.”
– Boyd K. Packer


jeffrey-r-holland-large“The past is to be learned from but not lived in. We look back to claim the embers from glowing experiences but not the ashes. And when we have learned what we need to learn and have brought with us the best that we have experienced, then we look ahead and remember that faith is always pointed toward the future.”
– Jeffrey R. Holland

There will be nothing in this world that can defeat us. My beloved brothers and sisters, fear not. Be of good cheer. The future is as bright as your faith.”
– Thomas S. Monson
