“Gratitude,” Liahona, September 2014, 8

Prophetic Promise


Uchtdorf, Dieter F.

“We can choose to be grateful, no matter what.

“This type of gratitude transcends whatever is happening around us. It surpasses disappointment, discouragement, and despair. It blooms just as beautifully in the icy landscape of winter as it does in the pleasant warmth of summer. …

“… In pain, we can glory in Christ’s Atonement. In the cold of bitter sorrow, we can experience the closeness and warmth of heaven’s embrace.”

President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Second Counselor in the First Presidency, “Grateful in Any Circumstances,” Liahona, May 2014, 75.
