Doctrine and Covenants 45:58-59

"And the earth shall be given unto them for an inheritance; and they shall multiply and wax strong, and their children shall grow up without sin unto salvation.
For the Lord shall be in their midst, and his glory shall be upon them, and he will be their king and their lawgiver."
Doctrine and Covenants 45:58-59


This section covers a lot of stuff that happens before the second coming... lots of it challenging for anyone who has to live through it. But after, it has this, which is amazingly cool, and shows us the reason, or the purpose behind all of the previous calamity. Raising children without sin? Wow. Living in the presence of God? Wow wow wow... there is nothing bad that can compare with that overwhelming good... and knowing that is the end, that it doesn't end with the bad stuff happening, but moves on to the happily ever after. :) ... And I think that our lives are like that, no matter what we may wonder sometimes when we're in the middle of the challenging part in chapter 15. The story continues... and it WILL end well, as in the verse. No matter what it feels like now, and no matter what we have to endure (and triumph over) in the meantime. Everything will be okay, all will be well, and all manner of things will be good. Promise. :) ... So, today, let's let go of some of the stress and worry we have about the future, and know that it is safely in God's hands. He'll deliver the happy ending. We just have to keep turning the pages. :)

  1. Good point... perhaps already happening... but some of it definitely hasn't happened yet.
