Great timing

As I anticipate hearing back from a few fabric companies, hopefully shortly, I have run across some quotes that seem to be just what I needed.

“Yes, there are cautions and considerations to make, but once there has been genuine illumination, beware the temptation to retreat from a good thing. If it was right when you prayed about it and trusted it and lived for it, it is right now. Don't give up when the pressure mounts. Don't give in. Certainly don't give in to that being who is bent on the destruction of your happiness. He wants everyone to be miserable like unto himself. Face your doubts. Master your fears. ‘Cast not away therefore your confidence.’ Stay the course and see the beauty of life unfold for you.” ~

Cast Not Away Therefore Your Confidence

devotional address was delivered at BYU on 2 March 1999.

Elder Holland also teaches: “Of course our faith will be tested as we fight through these self-doubts and second thoughts. Some days we will be miraculously led out of Egypt--seemingly free, seemingly on our way--only to come to yet another confrontation, like all that water lying before us. At those times we must resist the temptation to panic and to give up. At those times fear will be the strongest of the adversary's weapons against us.”


"Yes, it’s important that we do our part in matters of faith. And yes, doing our part often means taking action. But sometimes…sometimes…when standing in front of the “Red Seas” of our lives—those places we feel we’ve been brought to but can’t now imagine a way through—sometimes, doing our part is being willing to “stand still” and trust that “the Lord shall fight for [us].”  ~ Laurel Christensen.
