Food for Thought

I've been having some doubts about decisions Garrett and I have been making in the past few weeks. The talk "Cast not away therefore your confidence" by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland are a must read.

"It would not have been better to stay and serve the Egyptians, and it is not better to remain outside the Church nor to reject a mission call nor to put off marriage and so on and so on forever. Of course our faith will be tested as we fight through these self-doubts and second thoughts. Some days we will be miraculously led out of Egypt--seemingly free, seemingly on our way--only to come to yet another confrontation, like all that water lying before us. At those times we must resist the temptation to panic and to give up. At those times fear will be the strongest of the adversary's weapons against us." -- Jeffrey R. Holland
