I was reading my scriptures the other night and I found a verse that really, really touched me.
"I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill." -3 Nephi 12:17
Whether or not you believe in the Book of Mormon, this verse is so very true.
Lately I have been struggling. My friends (who are triplets) recently lost their eight-year-old sister in a terrible car accident. I believe that we will see our loved ones again someday, but it's just been so hard to wrap my head around it all. Why did that little girl, so young and so kind, have to leave our world so soon? My mind was in chaos- conflicted and sad- until I read this verse.
God knows what He's doing. He will never do something that will destroy us. It's all part of His plan. Every trial, every tribulation we face it in life is given to us for a reason. Through them we can find ourselves and grow stronger. They help us to establish relationships. They help us to grow older not in body, but in soul.
Don't lose faith in Him. He loves you so very much. He will always be by your side no matter what you're facing. You just need to ask.
Thank you. :)
