We had a wonderful lesson in Relief Society today which helped me remember these things. It was taken from the talk by David A. Bednar.
Our teacher taught us from this lesson about how the Atoning Sacrifice of the Savior gives us an enabling power to overcome all trials we are faced with. The trials may not be taken away but our ability and strength will increase if we rely on that enabling power.
From the talk itself…
"There is no physical pain, no anguish of soul, no suffering of spirit, no infirmity or weakness that you or I ever experience during our mortal journey that the Savior did not experience first. You and I in a moment of weakness may cry out, "No one understands. No one knows." No human being, perhaps, knows. But the Son of God perfectly knows and understands, for He felt and bore our burdens before we ever did. And because He paid the ultimate price and bore that burden, He has perfect empathy and can extend to us His arm of mercy in so many phases of our life. He can reach out, touch, and succor--literally run to us--and strengthen us to be more than we could ever be and help us to do that which we could never do through relying only upon our own power. "
Take a minute to read this talk. I believe it will help each one of us with our new years resolutions.
