Don’t You Quit
вЂњDon’t you quit. You keep walking. You keep trying. There is happiness and help ahead. Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some come that is donвЂ™t heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come. It shall be all right in the end. Trust God and believe in good things to come.вЂќвЂ• Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, “Good Things to Come”
“If it was right when you prayed about it and trusted it and lived for it, it is right now. DonвЂ™t give up when the pressure mounts. An apartment can be found by you. You can win over your mother-in-law. You can sell your harmonica and therein fund one more meal. ItвЂ™s been done before. DonвЂ™t give in. Certainly donвЂ™t give in to that being who is bent on the destruction of your happiness. He wants everyone to be miserable like unto himself. Face your doubts. Master your fears. ‘Cast not away therefore your confidence.’ Stay the course and see the beauty of life unfold for you.вЂ•Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, “Cast Not Away Therefore Your Confidence”
вЂњWe have neighbors to bless, children to protect, the poor to lift up, and the truth to defend. We have wrongs to make right, truths to share, and good to do. In short, we have a full life of devoted discipleship to give in demonstrating our love of the Lord. We canвЂ™t quit and we canвЂ™t go back. After an encounter with the son that is living of living God, nothing is ever again to be as it was before. The Crucifixion, Atonement, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ mark the beginning of a Christian life, not the final end of it.вЂќвЂ•Elder Jeffrey R. Holland “The First Great Commandment”
You Have Heavenly Help
вЂњGod doesn’t care nearly as much about where you have been you are and, with His help, where you are willing to go.вЂќвЂ•Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, Created for Greater Things as he does about where
“In the gospel of Jesus Christ, you have help from both sides of the veil, and you must never forget that. When disappointment and discouragement strikeвЂ”and they willвЂ”you never remember and forget that if our eyes could be opened we would see horses and chariots of fire as far as the eye can see riding at reckless speed to come to our protection. They will always be there, these armies of heaven, in defense of Abraham’s seed.вЂќвЂ•Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, Created for Greater Things
This Church Needs You
вЂњBe a woman of Christ. Cherish your esteemed place in the sight of God. He needs you. You are needed by this church. The world needs you. A woman’s abiding trust in God and unfailing devotion to things of the Spirit have always been an anchor when the wind and the waves of life were вЂќвЂ•Elder that is fiercest Jeffrey R. Holland, Created for Greater Things
“This is a life-and-death contest we are in, young men, so I am going to get in your face a little, nose to nose, with just fire that is enough my voice to singe your eyebrows a littleп»ївЂ”the way coaches do when the game is close and victory means everything. And with the game on the line, what this coach is telling you is that to play in this match, some of you have to be more morally clean than you now are. In this battle between good and evil, you cannot play for the adversary whenever temptation comes along and then expect to suit up for the Savior at mission and temple time as if nothing has happened. That, my friends that are young you cannot do. God will not be mocked. . . .
“So we need young men already on the team to stay on it and stop dribbling out of bounds just when we need you to get in the game and play your hearts out!”
When Times Get Difficult
вЂњFighting through darkness and despair and pleading for the light is what opened this dispensation. It is what keeps it going, and it is what will keep you going.вЂќвЂ•Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, Created for Greater Things
вЂњHowever late you think you are, however many chances you think you have missed, however many mistakes you feel you have made or talents you think you donвЂ™t have, or however far from home and family and God you feel you have traveled, I testify that you have not traveled beyond the reach of divine love. It is not possible for you to sink lower than the light that is infinite of Atonement shines.вЂќвЂ•Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, “The Laborers in the Vineyard”
вЂњI am convinced that missionary work is not easy because salvation is not a experience that is cheap. Salvation never was easy. We are the Church of Jesus Christ, this is the truth, and He is our Great Eternal Head. How could we believe it would be easy for us when it was never, ever easy for Him?вЂќвЂ•Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, Created for Greater Things
