Too often we bask in our comfortable complacency and rationalize that the ravages of war, economic disaster, famine, and earthquake cannot happen here. Those who believe this are either not acquainted with the revelations of the Lord, or they do not believe them. Those who smugly think these calamities will not happen, that they somehow will be set aside because of the righteousness of the Saints, are deceived and will rue the day they harbored such a delusion. - Ezra Taft Benson

Don't Panic

One of the things I've been reminded of recently is the importance of staying the course no matter the outer circumstances. Peace can be ours even in times of trial and hardship.

There are wars in various countries at this time.  Our thoughts are with many who are suffering.

We may hear of wars in our own county at some point.  It's been prophesied through the scriptures and modern-day revelation.Yet, we are to preach peace and not panic.

That's my hope and wish for us all.

And…if we've been heeding counsel for these past many years - we'll be in a much better situation to be able to endure and hold up a lamp for others.
