"The gospel of Jesus Christ is not insurance against pain. It is a source in the event of pain, and when that pain comes (and it will come, because we came here to earth to have pain among other things), when it comes, rejoice that you have the resource to deal with your pain." -Carl Broderick

I cannot see Him. Sometimes I don't even know He is there. And yet, He is right by my side, helping me, cheering for me, crying with me. He loves me. He knows the pain I have gone through, the pain I continue to go through. The neuroses, the struggles, the temptations, the hurt and anger I have been through. He knows that I still struggle, on an almost daily basis. And He is there weeping for me, and bolstering me up. He believes in me.

"Be patient in afflictions, for thou shalt have many; but endure them, for, lo, I am with thee, even unto the end of thy days." (D&C 24:8).
