Overcoming Challenges Makes Life Meaningful ...

 ***
 
"Every morning when we wake up we face a new day filled with the challenges of life."
 
"As we temporarily endure the challenges we can solve and as we continue to endure the challenges we cannot solve it is important to remember that the spiritual strength we develop will help us successfully endure all of the challenges we face in life."
 
"The challenges we face, if successfully endured will be for our ultimate good."
 
"Endurance is an important principle found within the doctrine of Jesus Christ. It is important because the quality of our eternal future is proportional to our ability to endure in righteousness."
 
"Our ability to endure to the end in righteousness will be
in direct proportion to the strength of our testimony and the
depth of our conversion."
 
"You must become the rock the river cannot wash away."

"...no person has ever been free of suffering or sorrow ..."

"...frequently the heavenly virtue of patience is required.  The difficulties which come to us present us with the real test of our ability to endure.
A fundamental question that remains to be answered by each of us, Shall I falter or shall I finish?"  To finish involves enduring to the very end of life itself.

"Keep the Faith!"

"... those who have struggled yet have remained steadfast and of good cheer ...  they have made the Gospel of Jesus Christ the center of their livesThis is what will pull us through whatever comes our way.  We will still experience typical challenges but we will be able to face them, to meet them head on and we will emerge victorious."

"Sadness and suffering are universal.  There are countless problems which could befall us."

"Our Heavenly Father ... knows that we learn and grow and become stronger as we survive the trials that come ... difficulties allow us to change for the better, to rebuild our lives in the way our Heavenly Father teaches us and become something different than what we were. Better than what we were. More understanding than what we were. More empathetic than what we were .  With stronger testimonies than we had before.  This should be our purpose to persevere and endure ... also become more spiritually refined as we make our way through sunshine and sorrow."

"... the stronger the wind the stronger the trees ..."

"... the further the sky the greater the length
the more the storm the more the strength
by sun and cold, by rain and snow
in trees and man good timbers grow ..."

Only the Master  knows the depth of our trials, our pains and our sufferings.  He alone offers us eternal peace in times of adversity.  He alone touches our tortured soul with His comforting words, Come Unto Me all yea that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest ...."

"He is with us!      Pray to Him and listen to Him every day."

"The Gospel of Jesus Christ is that penetrating light that shines through our lives."

Success is not to be measured by the position someone has reached in life, but the obstacles he has overcome while trying to succeed.

Okay, one last quote I heard on TV advertisement and liked;
 
 
Even the worst things
bring the best along with them.
