The question of Why? often comes up as I am with my children or participate in my church assignments. Why does something happen? Why does someone struggle? Why do we have to have trials and adversity? Why do bad things sometimes happen to good people and only good seems to happen to others?
Often the only answer I have is that I don't know. The path we travel is sometimes the result of our own choices, but other times it is the plan of a loving Heavenly Father to guide us and bring us back to live with Him. I do not know all. I am mortal and here to learn, but I can believe. I can believe in the Atonement of Christ. I can believe in the power of repentance and forgiveness. I can believe in the joy I feel each time I know I have made a right choice. I can believe that the trials I have are helping me grow in spirit. I can believe that all that I experience can be for my good. I can believe in the power of prayer. I can believe that Heavenly Father loves me and knows me. I do not need to know Why?
I can Believe....
