“Getting through Hard Times,” New Era, July 2008

Getting through Hard Times

One day in seminary, in the year when we were studying the Doctrine and Covenants and Church history, we were studying section 122. My teacher had us write down a few problems or trials in our life at the time. Then we read verse 7 of that section. The last part of it says, “Know thou, my son, that all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good.” Then my teacher had us write down our trials in a sentence and add this to the end.

This verse really hit me hard, and I realized that I’m meant to go through the hard times I have in my life. I have realized that the Lord has a plan, and He knows what I’m going through. He knows that I can handle it. And I know that if I ask for help, having faith that it will happen, He will be able to help me through these hard times.
