It is my testimony that we are facing difficult times. We must be courageously obedient. My witness is that we will be called upon to prove our spiritual stamina, for the days ahead will be filled with affliction and difficulty. But with the assuring comfort of a personal relationship with God, we will be given a calming courage. From Divine so near we will receive the quiet assurance. (President James E. Faust, Ensign, January 1999, p. 5).
We need not fear, but we best be getting ready...spiritually and in every way possible. Then the climb up the "spiritual mountaintop" will be more full of glorious vistas then painful muscle strains. :0)
