"When, in situations of stress, we wonder if there is any more in us to give, we can be comforted to know that God, who knows our capacities perfectly, placed us here to succeed. No one was foreordained to fail or to be wicked.
When we have been weighed and found wanting, let us remember that we were measured before and were found equal to our tasks; and therefore, let us continue but with a more determined discipleship.When we feel overwhelmed, let us recall the assurance that God will not overprogram us; he will not press upon us more than we can bear"
I read this today while I was at work (It´s awesome working at the MTC.) and it was just inspiring. Some times life is hard and stressful, but Heavenly Father really does know what we can handle and life Elder Maxwell said, he placed us here to succeed. Something that comforts me is realizing that while sometimes on my own, my capacities may not be enough, with the help of my Father and Savior, I´ll be made equal to the task at hand.
I really feel like that´s true. There have been plenty of challenges this summer, but as I´ve confided in my Heavenly Father, he´s helped me do far more than I could have done on my own.
