"Every one of us has times when we need to know things will get better.
spoke of it in the
Book of Mormon as “hope for a better world.” (Ether 12:4) For emotional health and
spiritual stamina, everyone needs to be able to look forward to some respite,
to something pleasant and renewing and hopeful, whether that blessing be near
at hand or Moroni
still some distance ahead. It is enough just to know we can get there, that however measured or far away, there is the promise of “good things to come.”
. . . This is precisely what the gospel of Jesus Christ offers us . . . There is help. There is happiness. There really is light at the end of the tunnel. It is the Light of the World, the Bright and Morning Star, the “light that is endless, that can never be darkened.” (see John 8:12; Rev 22:16; Mosiah 16:9) It is the very Son of God Himself. . . . To any who may be struggling to see that light and find that hope, I say: Hold on. Keep trying. God loves you. Things will improve. Christ comes to you in His “more excellent ministry” with a future of “better promises.”"
