This year has been a whirlwind! But I had a minute and decided I could spend that on writing a new post. 2016 has so far proven to be unlike any year I have ever had. Most years have a general flow to them that seem to meld together, but for some reason, there has been a lot of change without change that is rather extraordinary and it all just feels new and exciting.
I felt a similar energy surrounding the recent General Conference. Even with the terrible things going on in the world, the prophet and apostles and general auxiliary leaders seemed to have a light of hope amidst their censure. There seemed a sense of encouragement in the messages.
The major take away that I felt from the conference was that no matter what happens, or how troublesome the evils in the world are, the light we share is only as bright as we decide it to be. We can face evil in the face, and if we know that God is with us, then who can stand against us?
I hope that although this year may prove to be a wringer, people find their feet amongst the commotion of confusion and find the peace of knowing that our God is stronger. Our God is mighty. He is greater than any trial we will ever face.
