Doctrine and Covenants 122:9

"Therefore, hold on thy way, and the priesthood shall remain with thee; for their bounds are set, they cannot pass. Thy days are known, and thy years shall not be numbered less; therefore, fear not what man can do, for God shall be with you forever and ever."
Doctrine and Covenants 122:9

This is God speaking to Joseph Smith when Joseph was in Liberty Jail, and was going through a lot. There is a lot of explanation and comfort in this section about why we suffer, and then this verse. I really like this because it is what God always does for us. After feeling with us, telling us why, or offering comfort in our distress... he always, when we're ready, stands us back up on our feet, dusts us off, and says... okay, try again. I think this message is to all of us, and about whatever we're going through. ... Keep going. God isn't going to take away our blessings, and God won't let our enemies go past the limits he has set. No one can change the destiny that God has for us. Today, let's go forward, unafraid of any consequences that don't impact us spiritually. Let's work with God to become who we have the potential to be.
