"In the quiet heart is hidden
Sorrow that the eye can't see...."
Lord, I Would Follow Thee
I have often asked myself,
"Why were not my earnest prayers and fastings answered the way I want?"
"Why were not my pleadings for my child answered?"
I found a quote by Elder Orson F. Whitney,
"No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable.....and it is through.....toil and tribulation that we gain the education that we come here to acquire and which will make us more like our Father and Mother in heaven."
For those who have "sorrow that the eyes can't see," may these words be a balm and solace to your weary soul....
