2 Nephi 8:11

"Therefore, the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy and holiness shall be upon their heads; and they shall obtain gladness and joy; sorrow and mourning shall flee away."
2 Nephi 8:11

I love it when God gives us a glimpse of the future, helping us to remember how temporary our problems are, how ephemeral our pain, how insignificant our ambitions, and how short our sight. We get so wrapped up with the now and the obstacles and frustrations that sometimes we lose our perspective (and our cool). Today, let’s take a step back, remembering that God has it under control, even when we don’t. … I absolutely love the image of coming with singing unto Zion. I picture us all holding hands and walking up in a kind of Sound of Music shot… singing and happy, ready to make that gladness for sorrow and joy for mourning exchange. :) Maybe today we can remember that in the future everything will be okay. The happy ending is already there… we just have to keep turning pages. :) Perhaps that will help us enjoy today’s chapter a little bit more.
