I was reading the Ensign's General Conference issue today. Pres. Uchtdorf's talk on Hope touched me. Maybe it will you too!
"Hope is one leg of a three-legged stool, together with faith and charity. These three stabilize our lives regardless of the rough or uneven surfaces we might encounter at the time. The scriptures are clear and certain about the importance of hope. The Apostle Paul taught that the scriptures were written to the end that we might have hope.
Hope has the power to fill our lives with happiness. Its absence - when this desire of our heart is delayed - can make "the heart sick."
Hope is a gift of the Spirit. It is a hope that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the power of his Resurrection, we shall be raised unto life eternal and this because of our faith in the Savior. ........ Hope in our Heavenly Father's plan of happiness leads to peace, mercy, rejoicing and gladness. The hope of salvation is like a protective helmet; it is the foundation of our faith and an anchor to our souls."
I underlined the word "peace." It is an important thing for me, myself to feel an inner Peace. We live in a crazy world and having hope gets us through it!
