“A Better World,” New Era, Feb. 2005, 48
Sometimes I get really down about all the heartbreaking things that are happening in the world around me. It’s hard to go anywhere or do anything without coming into contact with negativism. Here in the last days Satan is working extra hard because his time is running out. If he can’t get us to be unfaithful, he tries to make us lose hope.
But the Lord can give us courage, hope, and joy. Ether 12:4 reaffirms this: “Whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world … which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast.”
