But, you know what? I've kind of had it. with the news. the papers, the radio, the tv (all of which I get online these days).
It all just seems like a lot of arguing... the economy is continually in one sort of crisis or another... wars going on all over the place... we're poisoning the planet... people are dying. It all just seems so unwieldy, what's a girl to do?
And then I remember this:
but all things must come to pass in their time.Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing,for ye are laying the foundation of a great work.And out of small things proceedeth that which is great."- Docterine and Covenants 64: 31 - 33
The beauty of Christ's atonement is we aren't required to fix all of the world's problems. We are asked to do good. And when we do good, our meager contributions are made holy through the power of the atonement. There are so many opportunities to do good in this world that we need never let the heavy problems of the world weigh us down. Mine is to get to work and trust in the generosity of God, as well as the power of Christ's atonement to provide for our needs and make me better than I am.
